She may have been voted off Dancing On Ice, but Kerry Katona’s plucky performance and have-a-go attitude won over the public, proving once and for all that her comeback’s complete.
But it seems that there’s one person who’s not relishing 30-year-old Kerry’s return to favour: her bitter ex-husband Mark Croft.
Mark, 40, told pals he needs to ‘strike while the iron’s hot’.
He’s trying to publish an autobiography revealing further sordid details of Kerry’s dark days during their marriage while she was at her lowest and taking drugs.
‘Mark’s been compiling details throughout their marriage of videos and photos of Kerry on drugs and swears it’ll bring her down,’ says an insider.
‘He thinks now’s the time to release a book after her big comeback and her popularity on Dancing On Ice.
‘Mark knows he’s pretty screwed in the custody battle after testing positive for cocaine in January. He hasn’t had access to the kids since, so wants to paint Kerry in the worst light.
‘He’s been contacting every book publisher he can think of, telling them that Kerry doesn’t remember everything that went on and he’s kept evidence of her treatment of the kids while she was on drugs.
‘He says he has a Christmas video showing her gurning and off her face in front of the kids, which contradicts her claims that she never got high when they were around.

He wants to talk about being the sole carer throughout their marriage and reveal loads of other dark secrets. It’s going to be brutal.’
Remind us what you saw in him exactly, Kerry?
Kerry Katona’s representatives said they had ‘no comment’.
