The star said she wanted cash rather than elaborate gifts on her big day to help pay the bills

Skint Kerry

Kerry Katona asked her wedding guests to get her money on her big day instead of gifts, claiming she needed the extra cash because she’s “bankrupt”.

The mum and new bride married George Kay this month in a lavish ceremony, attended by close friends Katie Price and Natasha Hamilton.

But it seems there’ll be no fancy plates and such like in this marriage.

Opening up about the big day to OK! magazine, Kerry said: “No, I have asked for money. Just a fiver in a card will do. I’m bankrupt and I’ve got five kids to feed.”

We are having trouble seeing Katie follow this particular rule.

But the 34-year-old didn’t want to forget a thing, and added: “I have to take it easy. Two glasses of champagne and I’m just drunk. I’m going to pace myself so I can last longer.”

The whole brood

Kerry insisted this wedding is different from her previous two, telling the mag: “The first time I was an absolute baby. The second time I didn’t know if I was coming or going. I was all over the place. I have grown up a lot. I was single for four years. Now I have met my soul mate.”


New mum Katie  had reportedly pulled out of Kerry’s nuptials  because her dress wasn’t right, with a source telling The Sun newspaper : “Katie made it clear she was unhappy at having to wear the playsuit. She had a face on her like a bulldog chewing a wasp.”

But now Kerry has taken to Twitter to clear a few things up, and wrote:  “@MissKatiePrice great work by a journo again way off mark, no stroppy, no fallout, no dramas me and @MissKatiePrice are laughing at his work.”           

The happy couple

Back in February, Kerry denied she was facing bankruptcy for the third time because she was still bankrupt from filing a second time last July.

She was first made bankrupt in August 2008 after failing to pay a tax bill. Her money troubles led to her losing her role as the face of payday loan company Cash Lady and she has postponed plans to get married to George.

And she complained only eldest child Molly, 12, was in private education as she could not afford it for Lilly-Sue, 11, Heidi, seven, and Max, five.

A source close to Kerry said: “She needs a large house because she has four children and another on the way but always sticks to the terms of her bankruptcy agreement.”

We have contacted Kerry’s reps for comment.
