Katona determined to marry despite fiance's meltdown

Kerry Katona will reportedly go ahead with her wedding to George Kay "no matter what."

The Atomic Kitten singer was left devastated last month after her fiancé, with whom she has four-month-old daughter Dylan-Jorge, had a public meltdown, but her bandmate Liz McClarnon is convinced she'll make it down the aisle regardless of the recent events.

Liz told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "She has had a really rough time recently and her nan died a few weeks ago so she has been in a bad way.

"But now she is keen to move on and focus on the wedding and she wants it to go ahead no matter what."

The couple also reportedly had a huge bust-up at their joint hen and stag do in Battersea, London, last weekend, which resulted in Kerry refusing to leave her hotel room to join her guests on board a luxury cruise.

However, Liz, 33 - who will be a bridesmaid at the wedding - insists the blazing row didn't give Kerry cold feet about tying the knot with the former rugby star.

She explained: "We had a great time on the hen do and Kerry still wanted it to go ahead."

George was detained under the Mental Health Act in June after taking a concoction of steroids, sleeping pills and alcohol, which resulted in him running around their Oxfordshire home shouting someone was trying to kill him, but he was released from hospital later that day.

Kerry also has children Molly 13, Lilly Sue, 11, Heidi, seven, and Max, six, from previous relationships.
