Kerry Katona's eldest daughter Molly is preparing to move to Ireland - but her mum's devastated.

Molly, 15, whose father is ex-Westlife singer Brian McFadden, is Kerry's eldest daughter.

She's been preparing to move over to Ireland - presumably to live with her dad - for a few weeks now, but Kerry still hasn't be able to come to terms with it.

Last night, Kerry uploaded a video of herself with her daughter, telling the camera that she was "in bits" and couldn't bear to be without her.

The mum-of-five, although barely visible in the darkly-lit vid, could be heard telling her daughter she had "abandonment issues".

She said: "My baby girl is having cuddles with her mummy. I don't want her to leave me. Don't leave me, Molly!"

Molly could be heard groaning in embarrassment as Kerry went on: "She's leaving me - she's abandoning me! I know I'm joking but I'm absolutely heartbroken.

"Don't leave me Molly, don't leave me. I've got abandonment issues. I love you, I wish you all the happiness and luck in the world... But don't leave me!"

We hope Molly doesn't take her mum too seriously when she talks about being "abandoned"!

Kerry's emotional video was immediately inundated with comments from loving fans, who reassured her that everything would be ok.

One wrote: "She might be flying the nest but she will always come home," whilst another added: "You are a good mum doing a great job. You should be really proud of Molly, her home will always be your home."

Another fan empathised with Kerry's situation: "I've been there too. And It's heartbreaking at first. But she's not far and I'm sure you will FaceTime and keep in regular touch. The best thing a parent can do for their children is to bring them up with confidence. Then when their ready they will be strong enough to flap their wings and fly. You've done that chic. Just be proud."

One other wrote: "It is hard at first Kerry but you will get use to it... It's not like she has gone to the other side of the world... Just make sure you will be there for her no matter what... She is your first and she will make you a proud mum always."

My baby girl gets her GCSEs results tomorrow and then leaving to move to Ireland all in one day!!! Wishing my beautiful baby girl all the love and happiness and luck in the world! As proud as I am of her my heart is breaking!"

Kerry also updated her fans this morning with the happy news that Molly had passed her GCSE exams, writing: "Sooooooo proud my baby girl past her exams!!! I must of done something right. [sic]"
