Kerry Katona has bravely opened up on her previous misuse of drugs, which left her feeling suicidal.
The 38 year old has spoken out about the lowest time, which came during her second marriage.
Former Atomic Kitten singer Kerry, whose mum recently announced she gave her daughter drugs at 14, is now fronting a new campaign in the hopes to help with suicide prevention after being determined to change her life for her children.

Teaming up with The Sun to launch the You’re Not Alone campaign, Kerry said: “I felt really suicidal when I was married to my second husband, Mark.
“I was snorting cocaine like it was going out of fashion. I felt so isolated. I didn’t want to be here anymore. I almost gave in.”
She revealed to the publication that she had discovered her ex husband Mark Croft had cheated on her during the same time that she was dropped from her £250,000 Iceland advertising deal.

“I was like ‘Oh my god I want to die’,” she continued to the publication, adding that she felt “alone” and “worthless.”
“I was being slated, being called a bad mum. I felt so isolated. I didn’t want to be here anymore. I almost gave in.”
Opening up more about her darkest days, she added: “I took so much coke with Mark and I had hoped he’d try to stop me, and go, ‘I love you too much to see you do this’, but he never did.
“I would take so much that I’d have a fit and start frothing at the mouth and I really hoped I wouldn’t wake up. But I always did. I had a guardian angel, thank God!”
Kerry also revealed the touching reason that she has her children’s names tattooed on her wrists.
She said: “I told myself I’d have to be really selfish to cut through my kids’ names. I could never imagine slitting my wrists in front of my children. But I can’t blame my mum for anything.”
