Kerry Katona in OAP-inspired photo shoot
Former Atomic Kitten, Kerry Katona, revealed in Love It Magazine that she has aged beyond her years due to her former lifestyle and experiences.
Katona said: "I feel like I've lived the life of an 85-year-old.
"It's aged me mentally - my marriages, the drugs, my experiences as a kid and being in refuges and foster homes, having to be a mother to my mother - the list goes on.
"I want to live to 100 now, though, so I can get a letter from the Queen, like my Nana Ferrier did. She made it to 103."
This year her daughters, Molly and Lily are spending time with dad Brian McFadden, after Katona claims they have only seen him once in 2012, which means Katona can buy their expensive presents in the sales, a thought the previously bankrupt single mum relishes:
"It's expensive paying for four kids when I'm not getting any help from anyone".
Speaking about the reformed Atomic Kitten, she said she is excited but admits rehearsals have been a little challenging"
"It's been a good laugh, rehearsing with Liz McClarnon and Natasha Hamilton again.
"I used to be a right good dancer back in the day.
"Eleven years ago, I wiggled that t***y of mine and showed off my midriff. I won't be showing off any midriff now, and I'm not sure if I can t***y any more either."
And although Kerry has some regrets, with the festive season approaching she is just looking to enjoying some time with her family.
"The past few Christmases have been brilliant because it's just been me and the kids. being there with them is the most important thing.
"One Christmas with Mark I lefts someone to look after the kids while I went and got off my head with him. I'd never let that happen now."
