Pregnant Katona sent to hospital

Kerry & husband

Former pop star Kerry Katona has been admitted to hospital suffering from suspected pre-eclampsia, her publicist Max Clifford has said.

The 27-year-old, who is expecting her fourth child in May, was in "increasing pain" before being admitted for treatment in Macclesfield, he added.

Katona, who won I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! in 2004, recently ended a stay at a rehab clinic.

Pre-eclampsia affects expectant mothers and can become life-threatening.


Mr Clifford stressed that Katona had been taken into hospital by her husband Mark Croft as a "precautionary measure".

"She can hardly walk. She's had a pretty rough time. It's got worse and worse. We're hoping that everything will settle down," he said.

Filming on Katona's MTV reality show Crazy In Love was suspended after she was admitted to The Priory for a fourth time last week, and is again on hold.

Mr Clifford said that Katona has been receiving treatment for bipolar disorder.

The ex-Atomic Kittten singer has two daughters by her first husband, former Westlife star Brian McFadden, and already has a daughter with second husband Mr Croft.

The pair have said they will name their second child, a son, after Max Clifford.

Katona admitted to smoking and drinking while pregnant, but has insisted that newspaper allegations that she has taken drugs are false.
