Kerry Katona has been dropped by Iceland as the face of their advertising campaign, after allegedly taking Class A drugs, as reported in Sunday’s News of the World.
Katona had been the face of the brand for four years, despite numerous public battles with her health, drugs and alcohol. A spokesperson for the supermarket chain has said: “We have always stood by her, as an example of a normal person and mum who has experienced some of the modern-day culture of fame, and how difficult it can be to deal with.” But now it seems her latest shenanigans have crossed the line, with the company claiming it is now “impossible” for them to keep her in their adverts.
The News of the World have footage of the ex-Atomic Kitten and reality TV star reportedly snorting cocaine with a rolled up £20 note in her bathroom, despite the fact that two of her children and nanny were also in the house in Wilmslow, Cheshire.
After reports in the Daily Mail that her fly-on-the-wall MTV series is to be axed due to poor ratings, this dismissal from Iceland must come as an even bigger blow to the star.
