And just days before Christmas, police were on the scene when Kerry Katona and George Kay were exchanging their daughter Dylan-Jorge outside Ampika’s house in Hale Barns Cheshire on Saturday.
The mother-of-five, 37, was pictured conversing with a police officer as she held her three-year-old’s hand.

Kerry is putting her heartache behind her after she announced she was splitting up from her husband George in June after three years of marriage.
Earlier in 2017, the former flames were going to make an appearance on Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother but they had to pull out because of ‘domestic issues’.
Kerry previously split with George in October 2015 after thirteen months together, a month later she appeared in court where she accused him of beating her up at their home after he allegedly armed himself with a Taser-style device and a knife.

George was later acquitted after prosecutors didn’t have enough evidence to secure a conviction.
Kerry has previously accused former boxer George of persuading her to ditch her friendships to spend time with him instead and regularly using foul language towards her, as well as ‘spitting in her face’ on several occasions.
Yet, after their second split this year, the mother-of-five hinted at abuse once again, by claiming she would ‘never forgive herself’ for letting her children witness his ‘controlling’ behaviour.

Speaking to the Sunday People last month, she said: ‘I feel like the worst mother in the world and I will never forgive myself.
‘No child should have to hear what they heard or see what they saw.’
Kerry is also mother to Molly, aged 16, and Lilly-Sue, aged 14, with her former flame and Westlife’s Brian McFadden.

‘Good morning you beautiful people!!’ She wrote. ‘Ready for the next chapter in my life with the help from my Guardian angel who I have just moved in with @ampikapickston1 Home from Home!’
Rumours were swirling that the blonde beauty would star alongside her friend in the Real Housewives of Cheshire.
But a source dismissed the idea as the insider told The Sun: ‘Kerry isn’t exactly the kind of person the cast would normally socialise with, and I don’t think they want to film with her.
‘She just wouldn’t fit in with the cast – they’re living these lavish lifestyles, and Kerry isn’t. Whenever the Housewives have parties or events on the show, it’s all paid for by them and they come with a huge price tag.’
