Blunt: Chris Tarrant has slammed Kerry Katona, recalling how he met her once at an event in Marbella, Spain

‘I do remember [meeting Kerry]. She was upsetting everybody,’ he recalled. ‘I think you can imagine. Oh gosh, a monster.

‘She was just all over the place, we were trying to do charity stuff and she kept butting in and eventually I probably did say, “Why don’t you go away?”‘

Kerry hit back on Instagram, sharing Chris’ comments and captioning her post: ‘Wow! Honestly I was soooo excited about meeting Mr Chris Tarrant! I remember going up to him at a golfing event in Marbella, and he said “why are you so gobby and common” amongst other things!

‘Honestly on my children’s lives he was really unpleasant so much so I went to the bathroom and cried! As for calling me a monster, well!!! I know I’m loud, I know I’m not the most well spoken person, I know I’m not as well educated as Mr Tarrant! But to call me a monster!!!

‘And I know I DID NOT upset anyone! I had a lovely time that evening! Please bare in mind that this was 10 years ago! So I’m not too sure why he’s doing a interview about it now!

‘Anyway… want to send you some love and cheer at this time of year Chris!!! Love your little monster [sic].’

Kerry has also written about the incident in her column in New! magazine.

She wrote: ‘I went up to him to say hello and he told me – to my face – he didn’t like me, that I was gobby, loud, rude and brassy. What? I was so disappointed. I went to the toilet and bawled my eyes out.

‘A couple of years ago, he did an interview where he said he wouldn’t do a reality show as he didn’t “want to be stuck on an island with Kerry Katona”.

‘I have no idea what I did to him but he must have had it in his head that I’m a vile person. It’s a shame as I loved watching him on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? I grew up idolising him and my heart sinks even now thinking about it.’ 

Kerry will no doubt be celebrating this Christmas after her boyfriend Ryan Mahoney proposed to her during a Spanish holiday in August with the blessing of her five children – Molly, 19, Lilly-Sue, 17, Heidi, 13, Maxwell, 12, and Dylan-Jorge, six. 

She told Loose Women: ‘Before, it’s always been about a wedding, I don’t want a wedding, I want a marriage. Ryan’s my partner, my life partner.

How do you really feel? Ex-Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? host Chris didn’t hold back on his thoughts

Kerry – who has a column in New! magazine – recently wrote: ‘I went up to him to say hello and he told me – to my face – he didn’t like me, that I was gobby, loud, rude and brassy’

‘I feel like this is how it should have been the first time and second… and third time around!

‘The past is the past. Just because I’ve been married and divorced and I’ve got five kids with three dads, doesn’t mean I don’t deserve to be happy… I’m really happy and I’m in love.’ 

Kerry was previously married to Brian McFadden, 40, Mark Croft, 49, and the late George Kay.

On telling Kerry’s five children before getting down on one knee, Ryan said: ‘I thought it was the right thing to do.

‘Everyone was excited, everyone was on board. It was lovely in that respect. I went to pick the ring with DJ and Heidi. I think Max was asleep at the time.’

Upon being asked what he would do if the children opposed his proposal, he added: ‘If it was the youngest three, I would have brainwashed them with a McDonald’s, the older two, harder work.

‘But yeah, I don’t know really. I get along so well with them all so I kind of knew it was going to work… I’m really happy about it.’
