Kerry Katona is "feeling more confident" after her nose surgery despite "freaking out" when she first saw the results.

The former Atomic Kitten singer recently underwent the procedure at the Pall Mall Medical clinic after previously admitting she felt years of "shame and embarrassment" over her nose due to her past struggles with drugs.

Writing in her new! magazine column, she said: "Thankfully I feel a lot better about my nose. It's still swollen, but nowhere near as much. Pall Mall Medical have done an amazing job.

"I think when I first saw it, I just freaked out because I wasn't used to it, but now I'm feeling more confident.

"The kids told me they didn't notice much of a difference either."

Kerry was initially married to Westlife singer Brian McFadden from 2002 until 2006 and has Molly, 22, and 21-year-old Lilly-Sue with him but went on to have Heidi, 16, and Max, 15, with second husband Mark Croft and also has nine-year-old daughter DJ with the late George Kay.

The 43-year-old star recently stayed with her mum and was left "fuming" with the state of her house after her kids and fiance Ryan Mahoney didn't do any tidying up while she was away.

She added: "I returned home after staying at my mum's last week and the house was in an absolute state.

"I was fuming with the kids and Ryan because no one has tidied up anything. It frustrates me, because it always happens when I'm away.

"I had everyone running around like headless chickens sorting it out."

Kerry explained that she's still been "recovering" from her procedure, which means she hasn't been able to contribute much to the chores.

She said: "I've not been able to do much myself, since I am still recovering from my nose surgery and even bending down hurts at the moment because of the scar on my rib."
