Kerry Katona has spoken for the first time about the armed raid on her home and said: “I thought we were all going to die.”

The former Atomic Kitten and her five-month-old daughter, Heidi, were held at knifepoint by three masked men who burst into their house in Wilmslow, Cheshire.

Her husband, Mark Croft, 36, was marched through the property by the raiders as they stole more than £100,000 of valuables.

Kerry’s two children by Brian McFadden, Molly and Lilly, were not in the house at the time.

In an interview with OK! magazine, Katona said: “It was the most terrifying night of my life. I thought we were all going to die or that they’d take Heidi away from us. I’m just so thankful that Molly and Lilly weren’t in the house.

“I’m not sleeping, I’m scared to go back to the house and I get frightened when Mark leaves me alone.”

The couple moved into the £1.5 million house from Kerry’s home town of Warrington a few months ago.

“I feel the lowest I’ve felt for a long time and I’ve had some real lows in my life. I don’t mind telling you – I thought that our life in Wilmslow was the start of a new life for us away from all the trouble in Warrington and we were so happy until this happened,” she said.

“I’m sick of hearing that it’s the end of the bad times for me because something worse is always around the corner.”
