Kerry Katona says ‘tree trunk’ legs make her feel ‘sick’ when looking in mirror

Kerry Katona has expressed her regret at having undergone surgery two years ago and not allowing herself time to recover, saying she feels "sick" when she looks in the mirror.

The mum of five, 42, who is set to appear on new E4 show The Big Celebrity Detox, opened up about her struggles with her body image and told how she regrets going "straight into work" after undergoing surgery.

In her new! column, the Atomic Kitten star said: "Even now, I look in the mirror and feel sick. I had surgery two years ago and went straight into work.

"I should never have done it and its f***ed my body up. My legs are like tree trunks – they're so swollen, so sore. So it's about learning to accept your body changing."

She added: "I'm like a flat pack from IKEA, I've been sliced and diced that much. I need instructions!"

Kerry went on to add that moving back up north after living in London during the early years of her music and TV career has also impacted her body, as she began to fall out of her routine after moving.

"I lived down south for 12 years, and I had my routine. I'm struggling with learning to love myself again, growing older and my body changing," the 42 year old said.

Kerry has been open about her weight struggles and recently overhauled her lifestyle, having taken up a new fitness regime and diet.

She's been documenting her progress on social media, sharing clips of her gruelling workouts and motivating others to join in.

Most recently, Kerry championed body positivity as she shared a workout video of herself in nothing but her underwear to champion seeing real bodies without filters.

She took to Instagram to document her workout, which featured the star performing a series of moves including leg raises, stretches and sit ups, in nothing but a black sports bra and knickers.

Kerry went on to explain that she had been following the Francis Diet and part of the accompanying fitness plan meant that the star needed to workout, however in an accidental mix up, she had forgotten to take her gym kit with her to her mums.

Proud of her accomplishment, she told her fans: "Even without my gym gear I did @mfitofficial workout! I have complete faith in the process!!” before later admitting she felt vulnerable sharing the unfiltered video online.
