Kerry Katona says she'll 'stand her ground' on Celebrity Big Brother

A feisty Kerry Katona has admitted she'll more than happily stand her ground on Celebrity Big Brother 2011 later this month, despite admitting she's "very nervous" about the show. In an interview today, the reality star refused to confirm she was going in, but said she had been reading reports about the show!

"If I get invited in to the new Big Brother house, I will be very nervous," Kerry, who previously won I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! explained. "I don’t like animosity, I hate confrontation."

But she added: “I can stand my ground if I need to, but I know I would be massively intimidated by the situation."


It's been reported that Kerry has agreed to a £500,000 deal to take part in the show, a lump sum that'll go some way to clearing the former Atomic Kitten singer's debts after splitting with her former management team.

However Celebrity Big Brother bosses aren't set to make it easy, with rumours that her mum Sue, with whom Kerry's relationship is rocky to say the least, has been offered £50,000 to join in.

Meanwhile there are also rumours that Kerry's exes, including Westlife star Brian McFadden and Z-lister Mark Croft, could also be brought in to spice things up the house.

Despite all that though, it's looking like a chav that worries Kerry!

"The other contestants would probably think I’m a chav, because I don’t see the point in being dolled-up constantly," she said.

Kerry added: "I’m not a girly girl. I heard a rumour Mike Tyson is in. If I am in there, I’ll sit next to him all day to look dead thin."

Other celebs set to enter the house include X Factor twins Jedward and 80s R&B star Bobby Brown.
