Kerry Katona has shared her joy at buying a house after ‘losing everything’ in the past, admitting it’s been hard work to turn her fortunes around.
The former Atomic Kitten star, 40, revealed the exciting news to her followers on social media, revealing her pride at not having given up when things were at their worst.
She wrote: ‘Good morning you beautiful people!!! Well it’s official!! After losing EVERYTHING 13 years ago and having to rent I’ve finally bought me a house!!
‘I want to share this news because many times over the years I literally felt suicidal! BUT I never gave up! If I can turn things around and get back on top ANYONE can.
‘I’m not gonna lie Credit where credit due I’m really proud of myself. DONT EVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF!!!!!!! Doesn’t matter if others don’t believe in you just as long as you believe in yourself!’
Kerry also thanked her fiancé Ryan Mahoney for ‘always having faith in me even when I didn’t,’ as she cited the law of attraction for helping her to achieve her dreams through a positive mindset.
The singer had been declared bankrupt in 2008 after failing to pay £82,000 of a £417,000 tax bill which meant she ended up losing her £1.25million home in Wilmslow as part of the proceedings.
As well as bankruptcy, Kerry faced many other issues during that period and did not know how she would get through the difficult times.
She admitted: ‘Even 6 years ago I never thought I’d be where I am today! It’s been b***dy hard. Drugs, bankruptcy, bipolar, mental health, anxiety, divorcees breakdowns, car crash TVs WOW I honestly never thought I’d get through it all!
‘But here I am. Tell yourself every day you love yourself, tell yourself every day your worth it and never ever let other people’s opinions define you as a person! Learn from it all, move on and help others.’ She added: ‘Oh and yes.. I’m moving back up north.’
Kerry has yet to reveal more details on her new home but will no doubt share more on her property purchase in due course.
