Kerry Katona puts up three epic Christmas trees – and shares family reason why she’s so early

Atomic Kitten star Kerry Katona has showed off her three epic Christmas trees as she revealed she's opted to put them up early because of an upcoming festive job.

Kerry teased that she's going on another 'panto tour' in December, that will see her unable to spend time with her kids.

The star displayed her trio of trees, including a Grinch-themed tree complete with huge baubles featuring the green furry character.

She also showcased her two different coloured nutcracker-themed trees that came with large toy soldier statues.

Sharing the slew of festive snaps, she captioned the images: "Well, guys, it is officially Christmas at the Katona residence!!!!!!"

"Yes, I know, I know it's early!!!!!!! But I go on tour for panto in December, so I want to make the most of the Christmas spirit with The Rugrats," she added

"Couldn't have done this without the amazing help from Think we will watch The Grinch tonight."

The 42-year-old is no stranger to the stage, having previously taken on the role of a 'wicked' villain in a Rapunzel pantomime that toured during the Easter break this year.

The star was joined by Britain's Got Talent ventriloquist Jamie Leahey and EastEnders star Dean Gaffney in the show.

The mother of five played Mother Gothel in the UK-wide tour, which saw her 'back by popular demand..' She also previously played the role of the Fairy Godmother in 2016’s Cinderella.

Last year Kerry also joined the cast of Cinderella the New Theatre Royal in Lincoln, where she played one of the ugly sisters, 'Botox.'

But after she fell and twisted her ankle in the middle of the tour, her daughter Lilly, whom she shares with Brian McFadden, was forced to step in.

At the time, the 20-year-old said, "Stepping in with five minutes' notice was scary but fun, but I couldn't do it without my fam."

She previously spoke out about how she's caught the 'panto bug,' saying she was 'desperate to get back on the stage.'

Speaking to the local news website The Lincolnite, she said: "I've been doing panto twice a year ever since because I loved it so much.

"I've been dying to get back here, and here we are. Until I did panto, I didn't realise just how hard it is.

"When I got asked to do it for the first time, I honestly thought that was my career over, but I kid you not, you have not worked hard until you've done panto. It's such a hard slog, but it's the most rewarding and most fun you'll ever have."
