ITV reportedly axes Kerry Katona: The Next Chapter

Kerry Katona’s ITV2 fly-on-the-wall show won’t be returning, according to reports.

The Sun said that the broadcaster had decided not to make any further episodes of Kerry Katona: The Next Chapter.

The divorced reality star’s spokesman Max Clifford was quoted as saying: “It is a shame as Kerry wants to be on TV, and after her success on Big Brother people obviously want to see her.

“But with the ITV deal she was caught up in something that was beyond her control.”

An undisclosed contractual dispute was said to be to blame.

An ITV spokesman said: “We have enjoyed working with Kerry on two successful series of The Next Chapter, but we do not have any further episodes planned.”

The blow came as Kerry and second husband Mark Croft divorced on the grounds of each other’s unreasonable behaviour.

The 31-year-old reality TV star and the 40-year-old driver, who have two children together, were granted a decree nisi at the High Court’s Family Division in London.

Neither Kerry nor Mark, who were married in Gretna Green, Scotland, on Valentine’s Day 2007, attended the brief hearing on Tuesday, before District Judge Malik.

In papers released later, the former Atomic Kitten, who also has two children by first husband Brian McFadden, said that Mark’s behaviour during their marriage caused her to suffer depression, for which she was prescribed medication.
