Kerry Katona shuts down troll who accused her of using drugs during Instagram live

Kerry Katona took down a troll who accused her of using cocaine during an Instagram live on Thursday.

The mother-of-five, 39, was taking part in a live session with Skinny Jab, the weight loss aid which is a favourite of celebrities including Gemma Collins.

According to The Daily Star, the rude troll asked Kerry if she was ‘on coke’ as she discussed the controversial Skinny Jab. 

She then hit back, saying: ‘Why, ’cause I’m sniffing? I don’t have to explain every time I’ve got a bloody cold.’

The Atomic Kitten star has been very open with her past problems with drug use in the past, with Kerry being clean for 10 years.

Opening up about her past substance abuse last year, she told The Mirror: ‘It wasn’t so much that I was an addict, more that I binged. It got to the point I was so lonely, so empty. Cocaine was my best friend. It was always there for me when I was down.

‘When I was feeling worthless it gave me that self love and confidence. But it turned out to be a liar.

‘I’m not tempted to go down that route any more. I don’t even drink at home – I’ve got to do the school run.’

Back in May, Kerry used her troubling appearance on This Morning in 2008 as a way to call out trolls who ‘take the p**s out of people’s mental health illnesses’. 

The reality personality featured on the ITV magazine show 12 years ago, when she slurred her way through an interview, leading to much concern for her well-being.

It was eventually revealed that she was suffering side-effects of her bipolar medicine, and that she was battling an addiction to drugs – despite her insisting during the live interview that she was ‘absolutely fine’.

Taking to TikTok, Kerry posted a video of herself mimicking her behaviour while clutching a bottle of champagne.

She mouthed along to the audio from the This Morning appearance, with her slurring: ‘Absolutely fine, I’ve literally just got here! Woke up this morning and literally just got here. Fine – never been happier, I swear to God!’

In the interview she was questioned by then-hosts Fern Britton and Philip Schofield about her behaviour, in which she insisted she was perfectly well.

She captioned the TikTok spoof: ‘Soooo apparently it’s okay to take the piss out of people‘s mental health illnesses…. well if you can’t beat them join them! #ownit #past #moveon #bekind’

The latter hashtag – #bekind – came to prominence earlier this year when presenter Caroline Flack took her own life.

It appeared that Kerry was hitting out at trolls who have seemingly recently been making fun of her – although the specifics of this wasn’t explained.
