I'm bankrupt and I've got five kids to feed: Katona asks for cash wedding gifts

Kerry Katona asked her wedding guests for money.

The Atomic Kitten singer - who has kids Molly, 13, Lilly Sue, 11, Heidi, seven, and Max, six, from previous relationships and five-month-old Dylan-George with new husband George Kay - was happy to accept small donations from those attending her recent nuptials because she is struggling financially.

Asked if she asked for wedding gifts, she said: "No, I have asked for money. Just a fiver in a card will do. I'm bankrupt and I've got five kids to feed."

The 'Whole Again' star also admitted she had seen a ring she wanted to wear for her nuptials but was unable to afford its £300 price tag.

She said: "There was a ring my nan wore which was blue in a white gold band. It was beautiful. I was going to buy a similar ring but it was so expensive. It was £300 and I can't afford that."

Despite her money woes, Kerry is looking forward to a lavish honeymoon with George.

She told Britain's OK! magazine: "I'm going to the Caribbean for 10 days first class! It was a wedding present from [friends] Rob Jarrett and his partner Analita, which I thought was a wind up at first."
