Kerry Katona has expressed her anger towards trolls who targeted Good Morning Britain's Kate Garraway.

Writing in her new magazine column, the 39 year old said it made her "blood boil" when she found out the public were subjecting the presenter to "abuse" for "laughing and joking" on TV while her husband Derek Draper remains in hospital after beating the coronavirus.

The former Atomic Kitten star, who recently revealed she nearly died from taking cocaine, said: "It made my blood boil when I saw Kate Garraway had been subjected to online abuse from people who were upset that she seemed cheerful and was laughing on Good Morning Britain, while her hubby Derek is in hospital fighting Covid."

The blonde beauty went on to explain that humour is used as a tool to help get through the toughest times in life.

"Let me make something clear," Kerry continued. "When you’re in a dark place, the best way to make it light again is to laugh.

"What do people want her to do? Sit there being miserable for the rest of her life? You have to find the funny in the worst situations – humour is so needed, especially at the moment. And you know what? I bet Derek loves the sound of Kate’s laugh."


Kerry, who was recently "super proud" of her daughter Heidi after she competed on The Voice Kids, ended her statement by giving Kate, 53, a piece of advice.

She said: "My advice, Kate? Keep laughing your bleedin’ tits off – it’s the only thing that will help you through these awful times."

Kate had made the revelation about the situation on the popular ITV show while speaking to her co-host Adil Ray last week.

"We've talked about this, with me doing this show, if we're having a laugh and joke – because that's our job in the morning to cheer everybody up – people then say does that mean you're not worried about Derek or you're not feeling sad about it," she explained.

"I think maybe it's that she's professional, she's doing her job and then they see her do that and think, 'Well why are you posting and posing when you should be saving lives'.

"Not really understanding we're all human and the most important thing is we have to laugh and smile."

Kate, who came back to present the ITV programme twice a week four months after Derek fell ill, added: "Nothing warrants abuse, in my opinion."
