Kerry Katona would probably be the first to admit she is no Janet Jackson but the Atomic Kitten now has something in common with the superstar – an onstage stage nipple slip.
Taking to the stage at the Hammersmith Apollo for their debut comeback concert as part of The Big Reunion Concert, Atomic Kitten were preened to perfection. Although during one energetic move, Kerry, 33, showed off more than she bargained for as her cleavage, which looked unusually high throughout the show, popped out of her neon top exposing her nipple to the packed venue.
Despite the obvious wardrobe malfunction the trio, completed by Liz McClarnon and Natasha Hamilton, snag their hearts out onstage with their hits. Kerry, who revealed on the ITV’s The Big Reunion that she was worried how she would get through the energetic dance routines without a cigarette, looked full of energy as she bounced around onstage in black boiler suit and a tight neon top. She later changed into a white boiler suit, which she accesorised with some suede stilettos. Her bandmates mother-of-three Natasha, 30, and feisty Liz, looked slightly more feminine onstage with redhead Natasha going for a see-through bubble gum bottom while Liz almost matched Kerry with her skater neon skirt.
It’s been 12 years since Kerry left Atomic Kitten and during The Big Reunion filming she was seen charting some of her highs and lows, speaking frankly about Brian McFadden, drugs and being bipolar. The 32-year-old singer has been admirably open with her emotional journey since leaving the band but it was clear that the breakdown of her first marriage to the Westlife singer sent her life spiralling out of control. Speaking on the ITV2 show she said: ‘He left me. He got with somebody else and that absolutely destroyed me it made me feel a failure as a mother, as a wife.’ The blonde mother-of-four also revealed how she and Brian pretended to be a happy couple and tried to make their marriage work after it was revealed he had cheated.
After she left I’m A Celebrity after being crowned winner in 2004 the pair tried to put on a united front but split in September later that year. Kerry revealed that in the wake of the break-up her self-confidence plummeted and she entered into a second, largely unhappy marriage to Mark Croft and as that relationship broke down she turned to drugs. Kerry explained: ‘Cocaine then becomes your bestest [sic] friend in the world and it listens to your problems.’ The reality star spoke about how showing her life off for the cameras was her career and it was how she made sure her children got a good education.
Kerry credits exercise to helping her battle her drink and drug demons and said: ‘Exercise, it changed my life. I’ve been clean for three years’. The Big Reunion Concert will air on ITV 2 on March 28. – Dailymail
