Kerry begs him to go on holiday with her as she struggles to cope with her new life

Kerry Katona has been secretly calling Peter Andre for support with her career comeback and is hoping he’ll agree to go on a summer holiday with her and her kids.

Peter‘s been a rock for Kerry over the last month or so,’ reveals Now’s source.

Kerry will call him at night and they’ve been texting too.

Kerry‘s excited at the prospect of a drug-free life but she’s finding the whole thing incredibly hard.

Pete knows how hard dragging yourself up from the bottom can be and he’s been a huge support.’

While things are platonic between them at the moment, our sources believe Kerry yearns for a joint holiday to help boost her confidence now she’s a single mum.

Kerry‘s planning a break with the kids – Molly, 8, Lilly-Sue, 7, Heidi, 3, and Max, 2 – a few days away somewhere warm where she can focus on being a mum away from all the cameras,’ says our source.

‘She’s hoping Pete will consider coming with her, bringing his kids Junior and Princess, despite them just returning from a family break to Dubai.

‘He’s been away with model Nicola McLean before as friends and Kerry doesn’t see it as anything more than that.’

But sources close to Peter, 37, say his ex Jordan, 31, would go nuts’ before letting her kids go away with Kerry, 29.
