Well Done Kerry!!

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008 Well Done Kerry!!

Takes a bit of courage to admit a problem when ultimately you don’t wish to face a looming crisis. So well done Kerry Katona. Katona will now be able to access the real help she requires.

According to the former ex-atomic Kitten and Iceland advert star who has always public ally denied she has a drink problem. But the mum-of-four, 28, has finally come clean and admitted her addiction in an interview.

Notably, after a stay in the Priory four years ago Katona was diagnosed an alcoholic although this information was not out in the public arena. Kerry admits “this is a battle I will face for the rest of my life. I can get through days without a drink but it’s hard.

Indeed it was Iceland who paid for alcoholism tests on Kerry after a series of complaints relating to the star. Though initially Katona insisted she had her health under control and her bizarre appearance on ITV’s This Morning last month was down to medication taken late the previous night.
