Kerry Katona recalls 'belittling' This Morning interview and says show 'needs to go'

Kerry Katona has said This Morning “needs to go” after revealing she felt suicidal following her own “belittling” interview on the programme.

The former Atomic Kitten star spoke out as speculation continues over the future of the ITV show after the departure of presenter Phillip Schofield, who has admitted to having an affair with a much younger ITV staff member.

Katona was on the programme in 2008 and slurred her words as she chatted to Schofield and Fern Britton, sparking claims she was intoxicated.

KERRY KATONA: The culture at ITV, and the toxicity, and the aftercare is so lack of that I was like suicidal. No one reached out to me whatsoever. It was so disgusting. The audacity that being condescending, belittling to people with real issues on the sofa.

But "This Morning" for me personally, it triggers me anyway. This triggers me. Doing all this is triggering me massively. And I've worked really hard to turn my life around. I think the whole thing needs to go.
