Kerry’s CBB body panic over ex Brian
Tuesday 09 August 2011
Panicked at the thought of appearing in front of the Celebrity Big Brother cameras, as well as potentially coming face to face with ex-husband Brian McFadden in the house, Kerry Katona has stepped up her fitness regime with a trip
As Closer revealed last week, 5ft 3 Kerry is determined to be a size 8 and 8st 7lbs before the show starts on 18 August, after putting on a stone recently and reaching a size 10-12.
As well as working out nearly every day, Kerry, 30, is sticking to soups and salads to shed the pounds she gained comfort-eating over money worries.
Now pals say she’s even more motivated thanks to rumours Brian – dad to two of Kerry’s kids, Molly, nine, and Lilly-Sue, eight – might also be on the show.
A source says: “Kerry booked herself back into the GI Jane bootcamp to get back to her ‘fighting weight’ for the house.
“She’s also worried Brian might be in there. She was told someone might pitch up to rattle her cage, but she assumed it’d be another ex, like Dan Foden or even Mark Croft. But she’s found out Brian’s back in Ireland a week before the show and she thinks he could be going in.”
The couple married in 2002, but a year later Brian admitted he’d cheated on Kerry with a lapdancer on his stag night. They split in 2004 and Brian dated Aussie singer Delta Goodrem until earlier this year.
“Kerry’s been saying it’d break her heart being in the house with him because part of her still loves him,” reveals a pal. “She hasn’t been around him for a great amount of time since they split – it could really wreck her head.”
Other stars rumoured to be taking part include Charlie Sheen, Pamela Anderson, TOWIE’s Amy Childs and Jedward – as well as Kerry’s mum Sue.
