Reality star Kerry Katona cried tears of joy as she picked up the keys to her £2million dream home on Monday – but the star has not bought the property, it's been reported.
The former Atomic Kitten star, 40, took to Instagram to share a tour of her spectacular new mansion with fans, where she burst into tears after admitting her dreams had finally come true after finding a perfect home.
Mum-of-five Kerry, who has battled with bankruptcy in recent years, told her fans: “I honest to God just can’t believe it.
“Who’d have thought I’d have made it through?
“If you were to put a bet at the bookies if I was going to end up dead, I’d have taken that bet.”
Kerry broke down into tears on Instagram, saying that she’s finally started a ‘new chapter’ in her life.

While fans believed that the reality TV star had purchased the luxurious property, the Mail Online reports that Kerry is actually renting the £2 million Cheshire mansion ‘on a six-month contract’.
Last month, Kerry announced that she had purchased her ‘dream’ property.
However, the sale fell through, forcing the star and her fiancé Ryan Mahoney, to rent elsewhere amid their search for their forever home.
A spokesperson for Kerry told Mail Online : “The house Kerry bought has fallen through due to issues with the chain.

“So, because of this, she is renting the property for six months whilst looking for a new home up north.”
The former Celebs Go Dating star is believed to be renting the plush property for a whopping £9,500 per month.
The rented property features an array of luxurious and spacious rooms including a huge master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and dressing room, as well as four more double bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The incredible mansion also features an indoor cinema and a games room – which her five kids will no doubt adore.

Showing her Instagram fans around her new plush home, Kerry admitted that it felt bittersweet moving on from her old property because it was filled with so many memories – both good and bad.
Her previous home holds fond memories of her last husband, rugby player George Kay, 39, who died of a suspected drugs overdose in 2019.
“The last time I lived here (in Cheshire) I was doing loads of coke, losing all my money.
“I can’t believe I’ve made it. I’ve been at death’s door.

“I wouldn’t be able to do any of this without my Ryan – he’s just been amazing.
“Me and Ryan are entrepreneurs and we’ve been creating this little empire of ours.”
