Kerry Katona has admitted that her relationship with fiancé Ryan Mahoney has been "testing" after her Covid and robbery hell. Kerry, 41, was left devastated when her Range Rover was stolen while she was out shopping. Just 11 days later, Ryan's car was taken from outside their home. The pair also fell ill with coronavirus, meaning they were forced to isolate over the Christmas period.
Writing in her weekly new! column, the former Atomic Kitten singer has opened up how it put a strain on their relationship, admitting: "It's been really hard." Sign up – for free! – to see what she has to say.

Having our cars stolen and then getting Covid and being stuck indoors has really tested Ryan and me.
We’ve been locked inside with the children with nowhere to go and it’s been really hard. As we couldn’t go out, the stress was getting on top of us and then we only had each other to take it out on.
Ryan is usually the calmest person ever, but having his car stolen really did upset him. But all couples go through testing times. I’ll be with Ryan until the day I die and I love him to pieces.
Everything is good – it’s only made us stronger.
I’m Covid-free and I’m out of isolation, but I’m still feeling some effects. I still feel really out of breath and I don’t have a lot of energy. Ryan was really ill with it – he couldn’t even lift his head from the pillow.
It was our second time getting the virus and, while it was unpleasant, I didn’t suffer as badly as my first time.
Being in isolation and not having all of my children with me at Christmas was really s**t, but it is what it is.
Driven to the edge
I went out shopping last week for the first time since isolating. I was like a giddy kid and was speaking to everyone – it felt good to have my freedom back. I’m currently renting a car after mine got stolen.
I got it from Faster Car Finance and they couldn’t have been more helpful. I still don’t have any news about my stolen car and the investigation is ongoing.
Then, just 11 days after it happened, Ryan’s car was stolen. It’s been a nightmare. It isn’t just the car – it’s had a huge knock-on effect on us as a family. It’s traumatised the children – and I think it’s really affected DJ.
She seemed fine at first, but she’s had two temper tantrums and that’s not like my DJ at all. It could be a delayed reaction to everything that’s happened.

Bring on the positive vibes
It’s a new year and a new beginning – and I’m feeling positive. I always try to look for the silver linings.
Just because something bad has happened, it doesn’t mean my life is falling apart. My career is going well, I have a nice house and most importantly I’ve got my family. We’re tight-knit, we’ve got our health and we’re all good.
A lot of people make New Year’s resolutions and start exercising, but I think that’s something you should be doing all the time.
At the minute, I’m massively unhappy with my body. I’m working with a diet brand called Exante and I’m trying to get myself back into a routine. I’m taking the Exante protein shakes, which work well for me because I’m always on the go.
I trained a couple of times last week, but my body is still affected by Covid – I may be doing too much too quickly.
Who's the singer behind the mask?
A few people have been asking me if I’m Firework on The Masked Singer, which I find so funny. There have been a few times now I’ve been mentioned on that show – a lot of people thought I was on it last year.
I haven’t been watching it this year, as I’ve been too busy binge-watching The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills!
I’m completely obsessed with it. I’m also watching Stay Close on Netflix. I’m only a few episodes in, but it’s brilliant.
