Kerry Katona displays 'lumps, bumps, stretchmarks and cellulite' as she poses in her underwear and declares she's on a 'spiritual and fitness journey'

Kerry Katona has posed in her underwear to display her 'lumps and bumps, stretchmarks and cellulite'.

The TV personality, 39, stripped off in a selection of candid images posted to her Instagram page on Monday, and told her followers she is embarking on a 'spiritual and fitness journey'.   

The mother-of-five beamed into the camera in three mirror selfies as she penned a heartfelt message to her fans.

Kerry wrote: 'No filter!!! Lumps and bumps, Stretchmarks and cellulite! I am on a journey a spiritual one and a fitness one! For all info please dm me.' 

The former Atomic Kitten singer divided opinion last month when she posed for another string of selfies in her underwear, this time with one of her young daughters present.

Kerry snapped away while Heidi, 12, gazed up at her, opening up a dialogue on whether the photograph was appropriate. 

'Totally uncalled for to take a photo like that in front of your kids,' said one follower.

'Not sure this gives your child the right guidance, take a pic in underwear and post it for all to see,' swiped another.

But Kerry came out swinging, reasoning that posing in her underwear and uploading it is no different to posting a bikini picture.

Hitting back, Kerry said: 'To all the negative normers out there whingeing about me taking a pic of myself in my underwear in front of my daughter please tell me what's the difference to wearing a bikini on the beach and teaching my children to be healthier? Get a grip!' 

On the original photo, Kerry wrote: 'Loving my new underwear, feeling great this morning' before imploring people to join her on her 'fitness journey'. 

Kerry confirmed she had reunited with her personal trainer former beau Ryan Mahoney in her column for new! magazine last month, where she branded the hunk a 'godsend' as he supports her following the death of her ex-husband George Kay. 

Transformation: 'No filter!!! Lumps and bumps, Stretchmarks and cellulite! I am on a journey a spiritual one and a fitness one! For all info please dm me,' she wrote

She said: 'He's been a good friend to me and over the last few months we just decided to give it a go. 

'He's been a godsend recently when I've needed him most. We're settled, committed, my kids love him and so do I.'

The star added she and Ryan are hoping to keep their relationship out of the spotlight, after a string of relationships ended after she spoke too openly about them.

She said: 'In my mind, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. So this time I'm finally dating a man who has a job, his own money, and is very happy to stay out of the media.' 

Kerry praised Ryan for helping her to overcome her grief after her ex-husband George died in an abrupt, drug-related death in a Holiday Inn on July 6 at the age of just 39.

The star split from the hunk in October 2018 after just four months of dating, following a 'make or break' trip to Thailand.

The couple sparked rumours of a reconciliation as far back as January, but it was claimed Kerry was trying to keep the relationship quite as she was in the middle of promoting Celebs Go Dating.

Kerry has daughters, Molly, 17, and Lilly-Sue, 16, with first husband Brian McFadden, Heidi, 12, and Maxwell, 11, with second spouse Mark Croft and Dylan-Jorge, five, with late third husband George.
