Kerry Katona hits back at Chris Tarrant after he calls her ‘gobby’ and says he made her cry

A very unlikely feud!

Kerry Katona has hit back at Chris Tarrant after he branded her as ‘gobby.’

The former Who Wants To Be  A Millionaire host, 74, took an unexpected swipe at the former Atomic Kitten singer, 40.

Speaking to The Mirror, he recalled meeting her at a charity event in Marbella, Spain.

And he says she was “a monster.”

He told the paper:  “Oh gosh, a monster. She was just all over the place, we were trying to do charity stuff and she kept butting in and eventually I probably did say, ‘Why don’t you go away?'”
