Kerry Katona hits out at 'low life' trolls for targeting her teenage daughter Molly

Kerry Katona has blasted trolls for targeting her daughter Molly's appearance.
The Atomic Kitten singer's eldest daughter Molly (15) has been subjected to cruel taunts about her weight after she was pictured with her mother at Thorpe Park.
Kerry has two children with ex Brian Mcfadden - Molly and 13-year-old Lilly Sue.
But Katona said she won't monitor her daughters' social media activity as she thinks it will give them a thicker skin.
"Fortunately it did hit headlines with my daughter because it highlighted the low lifes the trolls are," she said on Loose Women.
"Trolling happens wherever they go, I'm not going to stop them on social media. It makes them stronger to see what people say."
Meanwhile, Molly said she ignores the negative comments in a statement on the ITV daytime panel show.
"Hey everybody at Loose Women, I just want to let you all know that trolling can be really hurtful and damage some people's self-esteem," the statement read.
"But personally it doesn't affect me because I'm a really strong person, and I was brought up by really strong parents...and 'ok' siblings. But I think it's kind of pathetic and childish."
Molly appeared on Loose Women with her mother earlier this month to discuss Kerry's bipolar battle and said she had to "grow up quickly" due to her mother's illness.
"She wants to do everything all at the same time. She goes crazy but in a good way," she explained.
"It's a lot easier to talk about it now were older as we're independent. I'll get up in the morning and make the kids breakfast, because either mum is busy or she having a bad day."
