Kerry Katona ‘fears she won’t be able to afford Christmas’ for five kids

Kerry Katona is fearing she won't be able to splash out on another extravagant Christmas for her brood, according to friends of the star.

It comes after the mum-of-five previously boasted about spending £500 on each of her five children over the festive season.

A source close to Kerry told Woman's Own: "She's been thinking about how she's going to survive this Christmas. She has to work to afford presents for the kids. This will be the tightest Christmas yet."

"She just can't face losing everything again," the insider said of Kerry, who has filed for bankruptcy twice in the past.

After originally finding fame as one third of girlband Atomic Kitten, Kerry has secured a living by numerous stints on reality TV shows.

However, a source claimed Kerry's spending habits often outweigh the salary she rakes in from appearances in shows including I'm A Celebrity, CelebrityBig Brother and Celebs Go Dating.

"Kerry doesn't have a regular income but she spends fast – 20 years in the industry has given her a need to keep up appearances," said the source.

After splurging last Christmas, a rocky 12 months has followed for Kerry, whose estranged third husband George Kay died in July.

She's been left to raise their five-year-old daughter Dylan Jorge alone and is also mum to four other children from previous relationships:Molly, 18, Lily-Sue, 16, Heidi, 12, and Max 11.

39-year-old Kerry previously said she could understand how easy it was for families to get into debt.

"The world we live in today, especially with the Internet and social media. It's keeping up with the Joneses. Everyone wants you to think that their life is amazing."

Meanwhile, Kerry's long-term pal and former I'm A Celeb campmate Katie Price was declared bankrupt today.

The ex glamour model avoided bankruptcy in December last year after agreeing a plan to pay back what she owes.

At a hearing on Tuesday it was claimed Katie had failed to pay back the agreed £12,000 instalments of her debt.

The 41-year-old was once said to be worth more than £40 million.
