Kerry Katona has revealed that she managed to turn her financial difficulties around after signing up to adult subscription site OnlyFans.
The former Atomic Kitten star, 40, said she has managed to earn £1million since being declared bankrupt in 2008 thanks to the site.
Speaking to the Mirror, the star said she is now earning as much as ‘tens of thousands a month’ by sharing sultry snaps and images of her feet.

She told the publication: ‘People are quick to say, ‘she’s desperate’ if I get out a bit of nipple, but I’ve made my first million since bankruptcy and I’m so, so proud.
‘If it wasn’t for OnlyFans I wouldn’t have had money to invest in myself and in making more companies.’
Since starting her account, Kerry has been able to open her very own online clothing company, KerryBoutique, as well as a dating app with her fiancé Ryan Mahoney.
She has also been able to send her son Dylan-Jorge to a private school thanks to her financial stability.

In addition to this, Kerry also now hopes to be able to purchase the £1.9million home that she has been renting – but admitted that she is now a different person to before and won’t let her finances spiral out of control.
However, despite being pleased about being able to make a steady income again, Kerry complained that people judge her for sharing images of herself when professional actors receive awards for doing the same in films.
Kerry said that she initially signed up for the website after having to borrow £50 from her mother in order to help feed her children.
However, it was only after a friend of hers explained how she could turn her account into a business that she started focusing more seriously on it.

Kerry has five children – Molly Marie, 19, Lilly-Sue, 18, who she shares with Brian McFadden, Heidi Elizabeth, 14, Maxwell Mark, 13, who she shares with Mark Croft, and Dylan-Jorge Rose Kay, seven who she shared with the late George Kay.
And after deciding to set up her OnlyFans, Kerry said she discussed the idea with her children, who said that they were fine with it.
She said: ‘I started out as a Page 3 model and owe my career to that, so it’s no different for me or the children, who have grown up seeing me doing shoots.’
The content on her account includes sexy messages and pictures, though she said she does not share anything more than topless photos.

She also revealed she has a lot of people with feet fetishes asking for images of her feet, while other people use her as a therapist for their ‘sex issues’.
Her recent interview comes after Kerry revealed she has now had a secret breast reduction and is excited about having a smaller cleavage.
The TV star revealed that she will show off her reduced bust but not until she’s taken a ‘complete rest’.
Kerry wrote in New magazine that she recently had a consultation about the reduction with Dr Maurino Joffily, a renowned surgeon who has performed her breast enlargement in the past.

She penned: ‘As I’m writing this, I’m getting it done tomorrow. So it will be all done by the time you’re reading this.
‘I’ll be OK and it’s for the greater good. I can’t wait to have smaller boobs. I’ll do a week of complete rest and then I’m good to go!’
Back in 2019, the mother-of-five had her 36EE boobs lifted after a breast enlargement.
But five weeks ago, Kerry shared a snap with her 747,000 Instagram followers, expressing how she wanted ‘new’ boobs once more.
‘Not gonna lie, I can’t wait to get me some new boobies!! These are killing my back!! @maurino_joffily’
This is not the first – and last time – the Cheshire-born star has credited her surgeon.
Recently, she described Dr Maurino Joffily as her ‘knight in shining armour’ after she revealed to fans that she ‘trips’ over her nipples and her body has swollen after a combination of unhealthy eating and lack of exercise.
‘I told you lot I would always be honest with you..I’m hurting I’m upset I’m hating myself but there is a man who is going to change all of that for me meet @maurino_joffily,’ she said.
