EXCLUSIVE: Kerry Katona says she ‘begs’ her daughter Lilly-Sue, 20, to go to Love Island and be an example to young girls after turning down the show twice
Kerry Katona has said she is “begging” her daughter Lilly-Sue to go to Love Island and be an example to young girls.
The Atomic Kitten star, 42, who shares her daughter with ex-husband Brian McFadden, 43, explained how Lilly-Sue could bring some normalcy to the ITV program as ‘she doesn’t give a damn’.
Lilly-Sue turned down Love Island twice after being approached to enter the villa.
Kerry was featured on Slingo’s Getting Lippy Gossip Show on Friday, along with host Emma Conybeare and MailOnline’s Rebecca Lawrence, praising her daughters’ relaxed approach to life.
‘They’re from a different generation, but my Lilly doesn’t give such a ****. She was offered to Love Island twice. I’m like, “Lilly, please do it.”‘

She explained, “Not just because I wanted to make a lot of money and give half to myself. Because Lilly is one of those who don’t shave her armpits, she’ll sit there smoking a rollie, she’s a very natural, nice looking girl.
“She doesn’t want to shave her legs. Teenage girls need to see that you know that it’s not like you don’t have to look perfect all the time.
Speaking about her own fitness journey, Kerry explained the importance of making “appearance tweaks” for yourself.
She added: “My message to younger people is that if you feel good in your head and heart everything else will fall into place and don’t ever go and try to change yourself for someone else, it’s the biggest mistake you can make.
‘I’m going to get something done. I’m gonna do it for me. I don’t rely on Ryan (fiancée) for my happiness, he improves it.”
Last month, Kerry blasted Love Island as she revealed why her daughter turned down the opportunity.
In an interview with The mirrorKerry said she thinks Love Island is “fake” and is “shocked” that the show is still running, and she wanted her daughter to enter the villa to bring a little normalcy.
She said, ‘Love Island – Bore Island, it’s wrong, I can’t believe it’s still going on, our Lilly was asked to do it twice.’

Natural beauty: ‘She doesn’t shave her legs. Teenage girls need to see you know it’s not like that, you don’t have to look perfect all the time, give two flying f****,” Kerry explained
“It’s fake and foggy, it gives young children the wrong impression and the wrong idea. I haven’t seen it, can’t believe it’s still going on – I find it shocking.’
Lilly-Sue turned down the show twice because she felt she wasn’t one to just walk around in a bikini.
Kerry and her daughter have an open and honest relationship with Lilly Sue revealing that Kerry’s OnlyFans are empowering, after the pair discussed her mother’s X-rated content.
She argued that her mother was taking back control of her body by publishing content on the site, saying she “absolutely loved it.”
