Kerry Katona has moved back in with her mother because her fiance has been "unsupportive".

The former Atomic Kitten singer recently underwent an operation to rebuild her nose using tissue from other areas of her body but she was left feeling "lonely" during her recovery as Ryan Mahoney - who she has been in a relationship with for five years - has been in London so she hasn't seen him since the surgery and has had to rely on her mum Sue for help instead.

She wrote in her column for new! magazine: "I want to say a massive thank you to my mum, who has been my rock during the last couple of weeks. I’ve been staying at hers and she’s really looked after me. If I’m honest, I’ve felt more lonely than ever during my recovery.

"Ryan was away getting a tattoo in London when I went into hospital and I haven’t seen him since my surgery over a week ago.

"That upset me, because it made me feel unsupported and I could have done with the emotional support.

"I’m always the 'strong mum' in our house and this week I really wanted to be looked after and have him here, but I had my mum instead."

Kerry - who has five children from previous relationships - has had a "tough week mentally" since having the operation and she's a "little sad" about how the operation has changed her face, though she knows she'll be delighted with the results eventually.

She wrote: "I’ve had a tough week mentally while recovering from my nose surgery. The recovery is going really well but seeing my new nose was a shock. I needed the op for medical reasons, not vanity, and I know my nose will look amazing when it has healed, but I burst into tears when I got home and saw it, because it looked swollen and different. I'm only now able to look at myself in the mirror.

"The team at Pall Mall Medical have been so supportive and Dr Raghavan has done an amazing job. I think I just need time for it to heal and to get used to it. I needed it doing and it’s been done so well.

"I’m also a little sad because I have the same nose as my biological dad, so it makes me think I’ve lost that link. Let this be a lesson – don’t do drugs!

"If you’re thinking about rhinoplasty, make sure you’re prepared for the aftermath."
