The 30-year-old, who is currently competing on ITV's Dancing On Ice, told Loose Women that appearing on the live show made her "so nervous".
"I think you can hear me before you see me - you can hear me laughing because I'm really loud. But as soon as the live show comes on I get very nervous and go really quiet," she said. "I really want to be liked again. The public for me are my family."
She continued: "I'm loving it and I don't want it to end."
Katona insisted that she has "learnt" from her mistakes, adding: "It's a blessing in disguise, because now I know the type of character I want to be."
