When Kerry Ka­tona and Brian McFad­den walked down the aisle to­gether 15 years ago, it was a match made in pop star heaven. Blonde Kerry was fly­ing high with Atomic Kit­ten, while Ir­ish singer Brian was adored by Westlife fans. Af­ter the cou­ple split in 2006, end­ing a four-year mar­riage, Kerry was dev­as­tated, and brought up their chil­dren, Molly, now 15, and Lilly-Sue, now 14, on her own af­ter Brian moved to Aus­tralia.

But the cou­ple be­came close again over the years, with Kerry, 36, of­ten turn­ing to the for­mer boy­band star when she faced her many trou­bles – and the mum-of-five has had her fair share of dif­fi­cul­ties in re­cent weeks. A month ago, Kerry ended her volatile third mar­riage to Ge­orge Kay, also 36, af­ter a string of rows, but his be­hav­iour grew in­creas­ingly er­ratic.

Last week, it was re­vealed, he was dis­cov­ered naked on a house roof in Liver­pool, and it took two hours for po­lice to talk him down.

And, as she deals with the emo­tional fall­out of call­ing time on the dif­fi­cult re­la­tion­ship, she has been call­ing Brian, 37, for sup­port to help her through it.

‘Kerry trusts Brian’s ad­vice more than any­one’s, even though they have had their feuds in the past,’ says a friend. ‘He does care deeply for her wel­fare, and he wants to be there for her so their chil­dren can see that he still cares.

‘Brian has been con­stantly ad­vis­ing and sup­port­ing Kerry, be­cause he knows that, when she is in a bad place like this, she needs him more than ever.’

How­ever, the Ir­ish singer does not hold back from giv­ing his opin­ion on Kerry’s ex.

‘Brian keeps as­sur­ing her things will get bet­ter, but she needs to be very strong and cut Ge­orge out com­pletely,’ con­tin­ues the pal.

Kerry’s re­la­tion­ship with Ge­orge, who she mar­ried in 2014, has been un­sta­ble over the years. They rekin­dled their ro­mance in Oc­to­ber af­ter an 11-month sep­a­ra­tion, fol­low­ing al­le­ga­tions of as­sault.

In 2015, Ge­orge was charged with as­sault by beat­ing and pos­sess­ing a banned weapon – for al­legedly us­ing a Taser – but
