Kerry Katona sparked outrage from 'This Morning' viewers after she appeared to slur her words and looked dazed today (22.10.08).
The former Atomic Kitten singer blamed "prescription medication" for the shambolic interview, after viewers rang in complaining she seemed drunk.
One viewer wrote on an internet forum: "She is definitely on something and her personal assistant should not have let her appear as she is unfit to hold an interview. She needs help and was showing all the signs of being on drink or drugs."
Another added: "She shouldn't have been allowed on the programme in that state. On second thoughts though, maybe the great British public need to see some of these so called 'celebs' as they really are."
After host Philip Schofield questioned her on whether she was drunk, he said: "You have changed from the Kerry you were a few years ago", to which Kerry took immediate offence and denied. However, Philip stood his ground and replied: "Oh you have, Kerry, big time."
Mother-of-four Kerry also revealed she is struggling to look after her six-month-old son Max.
She said: "Well, Max cries a lot more than my girls ever did. People say boys cry more than girls do, but he cries a lot."
At the end of the interview, Philip's co-host Fern Britton apologised to the star, adding: "Sorry if you felt like you were on the spot at some points during that interview, but thank you for answering our questions."
