Kerry Katona usually says something shocking but nothing prepared us for her surprising (albeit jokey) claim that Loose Women ruined her first marriage!
What she said left the panelists and audience gasping, as she recounted a tale about when she was married to Westlife band member Brian McFadden.
On today’s Loose Women Kerry reminisced about when she made appearances on the show at the time she was married to him.
She looked at the audience as she said: “Sit back and enjoy this, I’m gonna tell you a story.
“Every time I was on Loose Women it was always ‘my Brian this’ and ‘my Brian that’.
“And this one time Brian said to me ‘I’m gonna go record this new single with this girl called Delta Goodrem’.”
From the sounds of concern from the audience they were worried about where she was going with the story, because Delta ended up becoming Brian’s next girlfriend and at the time there were reports that he had an affair with her.
Kerry continued: “I said, ‘I can’t, I’m doing Loose Women’. Can you imagine if I didn’t come on this show?! I’d have still been married!”
The Loose Women looked at her with shocked expressions as the audience barely made a sound. Awkward!
Then Kerry exclaimed: “Loose Women ruined my marriage!”
Although she then laughed and made a joke by saying: “Well, one of them,” no one knew whether to laugh or not.
Loose Women panelist Nadia Sawalha asked: “You don’t really think that, do you?”
Kerry said: “No, of course not,” and said she thought it would be a “funny story”. Shame no one laughed!
Although Kerry implied that she and Brian broke up because of Delta, both Delta and Brian deny rumours that they got together when he was still with Kerry.
Kerry got married to the Westlife singer when she was 22, back in 2002 and their marriage lasted around four years.
Brian got engaged to Delta later on, though he is no longer with her.
