KERRY Katona has admitted she would love for her daughters to appear on ITV2 show Love Island because it would make the family “a fortune”.
The former pop star made the comments in response to Zoe Ball revealing she would “disown” her son Woody for taking part in the reality show, even though he made an appearance on Channel 4 show The Circle in 2019.

Writing in her New! magazine column, Kerry shared: “It wouldn’t bother me in the slightest if my Molly or Lilly wanted to give it a go.
“I’d actively encourage it! Get on the telly, make a fortune and buy me a house please, girls!”
Molly is 18 and Lilly 16, and the two are Kerry’s daughters from her former marriage to Westlife star Brian McFadden.
The mother-of-five regularly shares pictures of her children including the two teens on her social media pages, sharing their accomplishments with fans.

She even joked their appearance could get her a house
Kerry added that she doesn’t “see the difference between doing a show like Love Island and The Circle,” and that “as Dani Dyer proved, you don’t have to have sex on TV”.
Dani won Love Island in 2018 with then-boyfriend Jack Fincham, and refused to have sex with him while they were in the villa as she did not want to have sex on TV.
However, Kerry then joked: “But I know my girls would never do that, I’d kill them if they did.”
Kerry’s daughters are the spitting image of their mum, with Lily in particular shocking fans with their similarity as the teen began promoting a controversial slimming product, HerbaLife, that she insists is not used to lose weight.

Lilly recently came under fire for promoting a weight loss brand
Many left comments telling the teen “you look so much your like mum”.
However, Lilly has come under fire for promoting the alleged weight loss drinks, after she took to Instagram on New Year’s Day to claim she had “never looked or felt so good” in a post crediting the drink for helping her to feel her best.
In May 2018, The Sun Online ran a special report into Herbalife after a growing number of celebrities began promoting the company’s products on social media.
The nutrition brand sells supplements and meal-replacement products made from soy and dairy proteins, energy bars, multivitamins and minerals tablets. But some believe Herbalife to be far from healthy – linking its products to a host of medical issues.
