Life hasn’t always been easy for Kerry Katona, and she has made sure her children know exactly what she has been through in order to help them avoid making similar mistakes.

In a recent interview, Kerry, 34, admitted that she had told her children everything about her past problems with drugs and the dangers that come with taking drugs,

She told Sunday People: “Being a mum is my ­proudest achievement. My children are so clever and beautiful they make my life ­complete.

“Having a big, happy family is all I have ever wanted and I will do ­everything I can to protect my kids and keep them happy.

They have given me no cause for concern so far but I do worry about them constantly.

“That’s why I’ve been very open and honest about my past, especially with Molly and Lilly, my eldest. I’ve told them everything.

“They know how dangerous drugs can be and I’m hoping I’ve scared the hell out of them. I want them to have the best lives they possibly can. My ­children are definitely my proudest achievement.”

Kerry struggled with drug-addiction and money problems for years, but is now focused on her family and husband George Kay.

The former Atomic Kitten star is mum to daughters Molly, 13, and Lilly, 12, from her marriage to Westlife’s Bryan MacFadden as well as son Max, 6, and daughter Heidi, 8, from her marriage to ex-husband Mark Croft. The family welcomed Kerry’s fifth child, daughter Dylan-Jorge last year.
