Kerry Katona is one of Britain's most talked-about celebrities, juggling the responsibilities of being a dedicated mother with a glamorous front-page lifestyle. Her turbulent early childhood saw Kerry witness depression, financial hardship and even a suicide bid by her mother, before being brought up in children's homes and by foster families. Aged just eighteen, however, her fortunes changed and she shot to stardom as one of the founding members of pop group Atomic Kitten, securing a succession of hit singles, sell-out tours and a fairytale wedding - to Westlife's Brian McFadden. Crowned 'Queen of the Jungle' on "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!" and Celebrity Mum of the Year in 2004, it looked as though Kerry had left heartache behind for good. But news soon broke that her marriage to Brian was over. Rumours of depression, domestic violence and their break-up filled the papers. Battling the odds once again, she bounced back, and with a Valentines marriage to Mark Croft and the birth of a beautiful third daughter, Kerry's courage ensures she goes from strength to strength.
