Kerry Katona "cannot imagine" going commando in public.

The 43-year-old star - who was initially married to Westlife singer Brian McFadden from 2002 until 2006 and has Molly, 22, and 21-year-old Lilly-Sue with him and went on to have Heidi, 17, and Max, 15, with second husband Mark Croft - has carved out a successful career on OnlyFans since her days as a pop singer but insisted that unlike some of her fellow content creators, she would not go out in public without her knickers on.

Writing in her new magazine column, she said: "Former 'Hollyoaks' actress Sarah Jayne Dunn has admitted that she regularly goes knickerless when out and about, as she finds it freeing.

"Each to their own, but I couldn't go commando in public.

"I'd feel uncomfortable and self-conscious. Imagine going to an event and wearing a nice dress and sneezing I've had five kids! If I'm at home and I'm wearing joggers or leggings, I might go knickerless, but that's as far as it goes."

The former Atomic Kitten singer - who also has nine-year-old daughter DJ with the late George Kay but is now engaged to Ryan Mahoney - has claimed to have made more than £1 million since starting up her page on the adults-only subscription service and recently explained that she "much prefers" being able to create and sell her own X-rated content these days on the platform.

She said: "I think a lot of young, vulnerable girls in the industry - myself included - were taken advantage of back then. But I definitely made sure I got paid! I made a decent amount of money out of it. The industry has changed a lot since then and now I much prefer being in control of my content on OnlyFans."
