Fans express their concern after Kerry Katona shares first loved-up snap with new boyfriend

Her newfound romance comes two months after her split from her third husband George Kay

Following her recent split from third hubby George Kay, Kerry Katona has found love with Scottish comedian James English.

Kerry, 36, has apparently been “secretly dating” James and has been visiting him up in Scotland to keep their relationship more private.

The Atomic Kitten singer has now shared the first snap of her and her beau and they look very loved-up.

The mum-of-five looked happier than ever as she cuddled up to her new beau as they posed for their first selfie together.

She simply captioned the picture with two heart-eyes emojis.

Fans rushed to show their support for the singer.

One commented: “Be happy. You really do deserve it 😚.”

Another said: “Kerry this is such a lovely photo to see, you look so happy.”

Meanwhile others were quick to express their concern for the singer.

One wrote: “Why don’t you just stay single for a bit and concentrate on your lovely children.”

“Kerry we all want you to be happy but not sure this man is the one for you!! #worriedforyou,” another said.

“Such a shame you can’t just concentrate on being a mum rather than bringing yet another man into their home,” a third added.

Last month pals claimed Kerry found love with James who “distracted” her from all the George drama.

Friends close to Kerry revealed the two are secretly dating and attempted to keep their relationship private.

The insider told Closer magazine: “Kerry has a new man – he’s a Scottish businessman she met at an Atomic Kitten gig.

“She’s been visiting him in Scotland recently with her eldest daughter Molly, 15, which is great because they can keep their relationship more private up there.”

The pal continued: “She’s playing her cards close to her chest with this guy.”

Kerry and George, who tied the knot in 2014, went their separate ways earlier this year following a string of rows.

Following the break-up Kerry made a series of accusations that George had been “abusive” in their marriage while George claims Kerry’s “alcoholism” was to blame for their split.

Kerry previously said she lived in “constant fear” during their marriage in an interview this year.

She added that George would “spit in my face all the time” but said that was better than him “giving me a hiding”.

Following her allegations George hit back telling the Daily Star: “I’m not trying to throw stones, but I’ve been painted as the pantomime villain for a long time and enough is enough.

“I’m not having Kerry saying things about me that aren’t true and that, more importantly, my daughter could read in the future.”

He continued: “Kerry’s drinking is out of control – she is an alcoholic and needs to get help.

“Being around her when she’s drinking to excess is awful – she is an absolute nightmare.

“She flips her lid about anything. She’ll scream and shout, then she gets very aggressive. I’ve had to report her to the police in the past.”

A spokesperson for Kerry has since hit back at George’s claims telling The Sun: “Kerry utterly refutes this nonsensical story, which is the complete opposite of the true situation.

“The Star on Sunday conveniently ignores the fact that charges of serious assault on Kerry were only dropped when she declined to give evidence for the sake of her children.”

The troubled star said recently that her two eldest daughters, Molly and Lilly-Sue, 14, begged her to leave George.

“I feel like the worst mother in the world and I will never forgive ­myself,” Kerry told the Sunday People.

“No child should have to hear what they heard or see what they saw.

“I sat my Molly and Lilly down because they’re older and all I could do was ­profusely apologise to them.

“I said to the girls, ‘I’m so sorry I’ve let this go on for so long.’

“They said, ‘Why are you standing for this? Just leave him.’”
