Kerry Katona has revealed she received a worrying health update from doctors after her recent nose job. 

The media personality, 43, went under the knife earlier this month in order to fix the damage she caused during years of drug abuse. 

But as she recovers from the procedure, Kerry told how doctors discovered she has calcified bones; the accumulation of calcium salts in a body tissue.

In her OK! column, Kerry said her doctor was surprised to see such advanced calcified bones in someone her age. 

She wrote: ‘During my post-op, my surgeon, Dr Raghavan, said they struggled to get the cartilage during the operation because he’d never seen anyone at my age with such an advanced stage of calcified bones.

‘When he said the words ‘advanced stage’ I s**t myself and the blood drained from my face, because that’s usually what you hear when it’s something serious like cancer, so I got worried, but it wasn’t.

‘It’s just something I get pain medication for.’    

The TV personality has previously admitted that cocaine used to be her ‘only friend’ as she spoke about her past drug abuse.

Kerry, who started taking drugs aged 14, has openly spoke about her bipolar disorder and addiction issues in the past.

The star, who checked herself into rehab in 2008 and 2010, revealed she hasn’t touched cocaine in 15 years during an appearance on MailOnline podcast, Straight To The Comments!

Speaking to hosts Josh Pieters and Archie Manners, Kerry said: ‘I haven’t touched cocaine in 15 years.

When asked if she has given up alcohol and drugs, she replied: ‘No I love a drink, but coke was more my poison and plus I married my drug dealer because I thought I would get it a bit cheaper.’

She added: ‘I wouldn’t say it was addiction it was more of a co-dependency. This was at a time where I would have 40 paps outside my house, my mum was selling stories on me and I was married to a drug dealer.

‘Cocaine became my only friend it was all I had. Rehab didn’t help me get off coke at all, when I got out I met my drug dealer.’

Kerry went on to speak about being diagnosed with bipolar disorder: ‘See mental health wasn’t a big thing back then, no one knew what bipolar was, I didn’t know, I thought it was a sport! So when I was told I was bipolar no one had ever heard of it and then all of a sudden it became a thing. 

‘My drug dependency started well before I was famous, I was 14 and my mum told me it was sherbet and it was speed. I thought that’s what you did with your mum. That was normal for me. 

When asked how she went from doing drugs to joining successful pop group Atomic Kittens, Kerry said: ‘I haven’t got a clue, I had a great set of t*ts on me and was in the right place at the right time.’

No stranger to going under the knife Kerry previously had a tummy tuck in 2021, another operation on her stomach in 2023, alongside multiple boob jobs and reductions.

In January she showed off the results after undergoing a blepharoplasty, which removes the excess skin from the eyelids.
