Kerry Katona shocked viewers on Wednesday morning as she made an erratic appearance on ITV’s This Morning.

The star of MTV reality TV show Whole Again slurred her words and frequently looked around the studio calling for her husband Mark Croft as she was interviewed by presenters Philip Schofield and Fern Britton.

Kerry, 28, has previously battled drug addiction and appeared on the show to discuss her recent cosmetic surgery.

At one point Philip Schofield asked her: “You don’t seem right to me, you’ve got the body sorted, but your speech is a bit slurred, how are you feeling?”

Kerry glanced off camera and seemed shocked as she asked: “Is it?” She then admitted her speech may be slurred, but said it was because she was taking prescription drugs.

She said: “That’s because I’m on medication at night-time. I had some last night, didn’t I Mark?” before trying to see her husband among the crew behind the camera.

Fern asked the former Atomic Kitten star about recent claims in a magazine that she had been drinking while on holiday. “Have you got rid of one addiction by replacing it with another? Is it alcohol?” she said.

A smiling but obviously rattled Kerry answered: “No, not at all. I’m on holiday in Spain and I’m allowed to have a drink, aren’t I?”

Both Fern and Philip assured her they were not insinuating she had done anything wrong, to which she replied: “Oh right, because I thought you were trying to imply I’m an alcoholic now.”
