She's determined to win over the British public but her relationship with her mum isn't great
‘Sue was really upset that Kerry moved away to Surrey,’ says a friend.
‘Sue was kicked out the home Kerry bought for her because of the mess Kerry got in with her finances and Sue keeps having a go at her for leaving Warrington.
‘Kerry asked her over for Christmas but she would have felt out of place.
‘Kerry‘s worried about her but hopes she’ll start acting like a mum rather than a dependant.’
Kerry Katona’s 5-step fame plan
1. Win another reality show
Despite cracking two ribs in training, Kezza‘s determined to win Dancing On Ice.
Our source says: ‘When she won I’m A Celebrity… her profile rocketed so she’s hoping the same thing will happen again.’
2. Become BFFS with Louis & Dannii
Kerry fell out with Louis Walsh after her ex Brian McFadden left Westlife, but she wants to make amends to help her chances of getting the X Factor gig.
Our mole says: ‘She called Louis an “arse” for having a go at Cheryl but she’s hoping he’ll forgive her and that’ll pave the way for her to meet Dannii Minogue.
‘She thinks they’ll bond over their kids.’
3. Start dating an A-list star
She’s ready for romance, but Kerry‘s friends say she won’t be looking for another unknown like Mark Croft or Adam Waldron.
‘She’s seen what “dating up” can do for your career,’ says our source.
‘She’d hoped that something would develop with Peter Andre but he’s all loved-up now with Elen Rivas.’
4. Boost TV Show ratings
After receiving positive feedback for her fly-on-the-wall show Kerry Katona: The Next Chapter, she’s hoping for a ratings bump when the series returns.
‘Kerry‘s getting fan mail, which she hasn’t had for years,’ reveals a show insider.
‘She wants to make the show into a ratings winner.’
5. Approach Simon Cowell
She’s been a talent show judge before – on Irish series You’re A Star – and now Kerry‘s set her sights on The X Factor.
‘Since she began life coaching last year she’s learnt a lot about herself,’ says our mole.
‘She’s hoping to meet with Simon Cowell to try to bag Cheryl‘s role.’
