Kerry Katona has reportedly taken back her estranged husband Mark Croft.

The Daily Mirror reports that Kerry’s friends are angry with her decision, which came just days after she announced she had started divorce proceedings.

The bankrupt mum-of-four had kicked Croft out of their house after learning she had lost almost £3million in two years.

Croft reportedly returned to the family home on Saturday.

One friend told the Mirror: “Any sympathy anyone had for Kerry has been shattered. For years we have been telling her she should leave Mark after we questioned his motives. She even came out this week telling us we were right and that she had been wrong to get involved. There are a lot of angry people around Kerry at the moment.”

The Mirror revealed how, after learning she had been left almost penniless, the I’m a Celebrity winner called time on her two-year marriage. While filming her MTV documentary – Kerry Katona: What’s the Problem? – she said: “This has to end. Mark’s bled me dry. He won’t take another penny of my money.”

Last Wednesday, Kerry was called in for an emergency meeting with her accountant, Frank Cochran, only to be told her bank account had almost run dry.

The 28-year-old is believed to have learned she had no money after her two younger children were turned away from their nursery because their fees had not been paid for six weeks.

But after crisis talks on Sunday, the couple were seen laughing and joking while out shopping.

Cochran said: “Kerry is a very vulnerable young lady, but she is just taking the mickey out of people if she does this.”
