Kerry Katona breaks down in tears as she picks up keys to new mansion

Kerry Katona was overwhelmed with emotion as she picked up the keys to her new mansion, marking a new chapter for her family. 

The former Atomic Kitten star has purchased a new property in Cheshire where she’ll live with her boyfriend, Ryan Mahoney, and her five children; Molly, 19, Lilly-Sue, 18, Heidi, 14, Maxwell, 13, and Dylan-Jorge, seven. 

On Thursday, Kerry picked up the keys and was seen outside the sprawling mansion with her estate agent. However, she became emotional and was pictured breaking down in tears and wiping them away. 

It came after the 40-year-old gave her Instagram followers a tour of the sprawling property and explained that it was bittersweet for her to move back to Cheshire where she grew up. 

Showing off the beautiful property, reported by The Sun to be worth £2 million, in her Instagram stories, Kerry explained: ‘So I woke up in my new house today, I want to give you a little bit of a sneak peek. That’s just the kitchen. I know right? I can’t believe it. I honest to God just can’t believe it. 

‘Beautiful gardens. It’s a new chapter guys, a new chapter of… and it’s quite upsetting.’ 

She then explained why she’s found it difficult to leave all the memories behind and added: ‘Crowborough [her former home] was the last place I had with George [Kay – her late ex-husband], closing the door on that. This is a new chapter, I feel really overwhelmed… 

‘The last time I lived here [Cheshire] I was doing loads of coke, loads of medication, lost all my money, surrounded by a bunch of d*******s who were just using and abusing me. Not only have I climbed halfway up, I’ve climbed all the way up to the top.’ 

Kerry has been declared bankrupt twice; first in 2008 after failing to pay off a hefty tax bill which also resulted in her losing her home, and again in 2013.

Looking back at her misfortunes, the TV personality continued: ‘Who’d have thought I’d have made it through? If you were to put a bet at the bookies if I was going to end up dead, I would have took that bet. But now I’m here. 

‘I can’t wait for the rest of the family to get here. Just leaving Crowborough [old house] was bitter sweet really.

‘They are my last memories with George and DJ. It upsets me because DJ was only five. Look how far we’ve come. She’s a great kid and she’s going to have a wonderful life.’ 

Kerry’s former husband George Kay died in 2019 at the age of 39 due to a drug overdose. They shared Kerry’s youngest daughter Dylan-Jorge, affectionately known as DJ. 

The former pop star has been in a relationship with Ryan, 32, since June 2018 and they got engaged in August 2020.
