Alongside a photo of Molly as a young tot Kerry, 36, wrote: “Omg just burst in to tears looking at my eldest come home from work! All grown up gonna miss her so much @123_mollymc.”

Fans rushed to support the star with one writing: “They grow up so fast @kerrykatona7 Molly is growing into a beautiful young lady.”

Another said: “She has the strength to spread her wings….because you taught her.”

“Always emotional when our children reach milestones. Be proud of what you’ve done as her mother,” a third added.

The mum-of-five recently revealed that Molly would be moving out to focus on her dream of being a surgeon without any showbiz distractions.

Irish singer Brian McFadden, who shares Molly with ex Kerry, told OK! magazine: “My oldest is going to school in Dublin in September, so she’s probably going to live with my mum and dad.

“I think it’ll be easier for Molly to concentrate on her exams there. It’s going to make things harder now for us all to be together, but you have to make sacrifices.”

Speaking about her daughter’s decision Kerry said: “She wants to get really good grades in her GCSEs so she’s going to Ireland to do a transition year. This will give her an extra year of biology and sciences.

“She will be massively homesick. But I’ve told her that I think that it’s the right thing to do. Her mind is like a sponge and just soaks everything up.”

“I’ll be more than happy to find out I’m pregnant.”

She’s certainly not fazed about adding to her brood.

She admitted: “It won’t be that different to having five.

“It will not be a problem at all.”

And the couple are definitely keeping busy as the star recently announced that the pair are planning to become “celebrity counsellors”.

The star has been very open about her personal struggles with a drug addiction, two divorces and bankruptcy.

So she will definitely be able to give the celebs some first hand advice.

Speaking to OK! magazine she said: “I’ve actually signed up to do a life coaching course in October.

“I’m really looking forward to that. It’s a week-long course and I think George is going to sign up, too.

“We could be the next celebrity counsellors on TV!”
