Kerry Katona has revealed she had to send her daughter Heidi Croft to private school after she was bullied.

The former Atomic Kitten star, 41, shares Heidi with her ex-husband Mark Croft.

In her latest new! Magazine column, Kerry revealed that the 14-year-old began term at a new school earlier this month after being bullied.

She also revealed the learning institution is the same school attended by her youngest daughter DJ, while her elder daughters Mollie and Lily previously attended the school.

Kerry said she was "so happy" to be able to send Heidi to the "really good" academy after 'turning her financial situation around'.

Kerry wrote: "Heidi really struggled at the end of the school year, before summer. She was being bullied.

"We also moved house and she had to say goodbye to a lot of friends.

"She's 14 and it's a tough age.

"She felt down on life – everything was negative. I felt she'd lost her spark. But a week into her new school, she seemed so excited.

"I could see that spark in her face again and I'm so pleased."

Kerry's change of financial fortune comes after she was previously declared bankrupt.

The recent Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins recruit filed for bankruptcy in 2008, having failed to pay over £80,000 of a tax bill.

She has since returned to millionaire status and recently purchased a lavish £2 million home in Cheshire.

Speaking in July about her return from financial ruin, Kerry said: "I am really f***ing proud of myself.

"Really, really really proud of myself. There are going to be haters out there who hate but I am so, so proud of myself."

She later added: "I wanted to kill myself, I was suicidal and today I get the key to my house."
