Kerry Katona has found new love with Scottish comedian and model James English.

The former Loose Women panelist split from her husband George Kay after three years of marriage in June, and she has now found love with James.

She took to Instagram on Thursday to confirm the rumours of the new romance by posting a selfie of herself and her new man cuddling near the sea. In the caption, she tagged him and posted two loved-up face emojis.

James also shared the picture and added a winking face, sunshine and blowing a kiss icons.

Earlier this week, the former Atomic Kitten star was pictured locking lips and hugging James at Gatwick Airport near London.

Kerry married George in 2014, the same year they welcomed their daughter Dylan-Jorge. Their on-off relationship was tumultuous, with Kerry announced she was divorcing him after he was arrested following a domestic dispute at their home in 2015. They later reconciled.

She opened up about George during a recent appearance on Loose Women, saying, "He's the father of my children and I wish George nothing but love and happiness... I hope he finds the peace to get the help he needs but I can't continue to help someone when I need help myself and to take responsibility for my actions.

"I got to the point where I said enough is enough. I'm drained but I'm not sad, I'm excited about my future, and I feel empowered I walked away from a relationship that wasn't a right one to be in.'

Kerry was previously married to former Westlife star Brian McFadden, the father of her daughters Molly, 16, and Lilly-Sue, 14, from 2002 until 2006, and she went on to wed Mark Croft in 2007 and have daughter Heidi, 10, and son Maxwell, nine, with him before their split in 2011.
