Kerry Katona has discussed her break-up with third husband George Kay on Loose Women today

Since news of Kerry Katona's third divorce came to light earlier this month, people everywhere have been desperate for more information on the split.

And whilst we've had bits through in dribs and drabs, she appeared on Loose Women today to discuss the split in detail with her close friend Coleen Nolan and the other Loose Women.

And, surprisingly, the mum-of-five was actually super positive about it.

She said: "I am absolutely amazing, I'm really good, yes I'm going through another divorce but it is what it is, it's over and I'm happy and I'm moving on.

"He's the father of my children and I wish George nothing but love and happiness. I hope he finds the peace to get the help he needs but I can't continue to help someone when I need help myself and to take responsibility for my actions.

"I got to the point where I said enough is enough. I'm drained but I'm not sad, I'm excited about my future, and I feel empowered I walked away from a relationship that wasn't a right one to be in."

Kerry went on to cite both her and George's mental health problems as the main reason behind their split.

She revealed that she only discovered his mental health issues when she was already in love with him: "I think you get your relationship, at first you all pretend to be something you're not and you fall in love then you see someone's true colours, even my true colours come out as well.

"When someone has mental health problems, as I have - which I've been ridiculed for for eight years - it's hard to walk away from somebody and I loved him, I didn't want to walk away, I wanted to help him.'

Kerry went on to add in a very mature way that she could admit her share of the blame for the break-up.

She said: "I'm not gonna sit here and place blame, I take responsibility, I allowed that situation to happen, I allowed that into my own life and I've only got myself to blame.

"I have to take them actions and deal with them and move on."

Fans were quick to praise Kerry for her mature attitude.

You go, girl!
