Kerry Katona tells fans shes banned from Iceland after being axed from TV ads

08/24/2022

Kerry Katona has joked that she’s been ‘banned’ from supermarket chain Iceland after they dropped her from their adverts over a drug scandal back in 2009.

The former Atomic Kitten star, who was previously a spokesperson for Iceland and appeared in several ads for the company during the noughties, made a cheeky swipe at the supermarket on Instagram on Monday.

Kerry, 41, shared a snap of herself and Denise Welch after they bumped into each other while shopping in Waitrose.

A user commented on Kerry's photo and wrote: "I'm glad u can afford to shop at Waitrose lmao."

Kerry then replied: "Who said I bought anything!! Only in there cause I'm banned from Iceland", along with several laughing emojis.

Alongside the post, the former Atomic Kitten star wrote: "Love a good catch up in the dog aisle @waitrose with our @denise_welch."

The mum-of-five lost her £250,000 deal with the supermarket after drug allegations surfaced over a decade ago – with the star admitting to using cocaine "as a crutch" during dark times.

The dumping came after the News of the World published photos allegedly showing her taking cocaine.

In an interview with the Lincolnite, the singer further revealed she was "banned" from the shop and forced to shop in Waitrose.

"I bumped into Denise Welch in Waitrose and it was so funny, I haven’t seen Denise in years and I’ve known her for so long," she said.

"We were stood in the dog aisle and she was asking me about OnlyFans and feet pictures, standard stuff.

She then relayed the Instagram exchange reiterating her comment that she was “banned” from the store.

The supermarket released a statement at the time acknowledging that Kerry had been through some "tough times" in her life but they felt it was "impossible" for her to continue to be associated with them.

Kerry, who has previously revealed she started taking drugs aged 14, has openly spoke about her bipolar disorder and addiction issues in the past.

The star, who checked herself into rehab in 2008 and 2010, previously told the The Mirror: "It wasn't so much that I was an addict, more that I binged. It got to the point I was so lonely, so empty. Cocaine was my best friend. It was always there for me when I was down.

"When I was feeling worthless it gave me that self love and confidence. But it turned out to be a liar.

"I'm not tempted to go down that route any more. I don’t even drink at home – I’ve got to do the school run."
