George Kay was detained over the weekend (03-04Oct15) on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm to a 35-year old woman, believed to be Katona, after Sussex police officers responded to a report suggesting a woman had been assaulted at the couple's home. The former rugby player was also found to be in unlawful possession of a Taser.

He has since been released on bail.

Katona has yet to comment on the incident, but her spokesperson has confirmed she is parting ways with Kay: "It is with deep sadness Kerry announces the end of her marriage to George Kay. Her focus now will be on her gorgeous children."‎

The Atomic Kitten star and her third husband Kay wed in September, 2014, and have a one-year-old daughter together.

Katona was previously married to former Westlife star Brian MCFadden and taxi driver Mark Croft.

She has five children.
