Kerry Katona reveals she was turned down for Piers Morgan's Life Stories
KERRY Katona has revealed she was turned down by Piers Morgan to appear on his show Life Stories – despite him begging producers to hire her for TV roles in 2018.
If anybody has a life story to tell it's the mother-of-five and former Atomic Kitten star, who has very publicly gone through drug abuse, bankruptcy, rehab, and battles with her bipolar disorder.
Despite this, according to The Mirror, during an Instagram Live Kerry claimed she was turned down to appear on Piers' show.
The star confessed it "shocked" her that the former Good Morning Britain presenter had rejected her.
She admitted: "I got told no. It is what it is but I was really shocked."
Understandably Kerry's shock will come as no surprise as back in 2018, while appearing on GMB to be interviewed by Piers, he begged producers to hire her.
At the time Kerry confessed she was "struggling" to land any TV work due to producers being concerned for her mental health, but said she was in a good space and wanted to return to work.
Piers ended their interview urging TV bosses to step up and give her a new deal to help her out.
He ordered: "If people in TV are watching – get her back on TV."
The interview surprised Piers at first as Kerry had just lost an incredible two stone and had turned up to her TV gig confidently in a bikini.
Complimenting her, Piers said: "You look great – and I don't mean that in a sexist way, it really is a compliment…
"It's not easy to be in a bikini on national TV."
Piers has had many famous guests on his show including Gemma Collins, Sir Captain Tom Moore, Harry Redknapp, Katie Price, Mel B, and Caitlyn Jenner.
During her Instagram live yesterday, Kerry stated she is keen to land her own reality TV show again.
She also penned that she will be filming her upcoming breast reduction surgery in a documentary style for her YouTube channel.
