Kerry Katona is being forced to sing Atomic Kitten songs live on stage only weeks after being fired from the band.

The humiliating saga rounds out a dramatic end to 2017 for Kerry, who was let go from the girl group she founded for calling fellow member Natasha Hamilton a ‘c**t’.

Kerry is also undergoing a divorce from her third husband, George Kay.

Kerry is playing the Evil Queen in Sleeping Beauty at Manchester’s Middleton Arena, and it has been revealed that as the Queen, she sings Atomic Kitten’s number one hit, Whole Again.

‘Kerry put on a great show but she wasn’t too enthusiastic when it came to singing Whole Again,’ a source told The Sun.

‘She seemed to be dragging her heels a bit while the rest of the cast really went for it.’

Kerry recently posted an image on Instagram describing how ‘gutted’ she felt not to be a member of the girl group, which originated in 1998 with original members Kerry, Heidi Range and Liz McLarnon.

However, Heidi left and joined the Sugababes while Natasha Hamilton took over in her place.

Following Kerry’s outburst about Natasha during a public appearance, which Kerry claims was a joke, current members Natasha and Liz made the call to have her removed from the group.

It is rumoured that former member Jenny Frost could make a reprisal and fill the third slot in the band.
