"It's a real sad story, but I'm really proud," Katona said. "The likes of some people who have sadly passed away like Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston... I was on prescription medication and I was also taking A-class drugs so I'm really, really lucky to be alive.

"I found the strength to get through my demons and working with you guys again - that gave me a massive confidence, but I did kind of feel like you [Phillip Schofield] were my dad and I had to wait for his approval!

"It was a personal triumph, because I never thought I would make it to 30. I could've had my kids took off me. I should be dead, I was at an all time low which we witnessed here on live television.

"I was in a really unhappy marriage, I was in denial of my drug habit and I was really lost and lonely. I had no friends around me, no family. I'm really proud that I got through it."

Katona, who was recently spotted at a recording studio with Atomic Kitten, added that she was "ashamed and embarrassed" to discuss her drug abuse with her children.
