Kerry Katona returns to A&E as son Max injures his hand... after spending three days in hospital with a mystery illness that left her in 'agonising pain'

Kerry Katona made an unexpected return to hospital on Tuesday, only this time it was son Max Croft needing treatment on a damaged hand. 

The mother of five accompanied Max, her 11-year old son with second husband Mark Croft, as he received treatment for an unspecified accident. 

Taking to Instagram, Kerry, 39, shared snaps of Max's x-ray results after he appeared to damage a finger on his left hand.

Captioning the images, she joked: 'I’m no doctor but it’s all looking good think it’s safe to say he can still pick his nose!!!’ (sic)

The former Atomic Kitten star also posed for snaps alongside her son as they waited for his results, telling fans: 'A lovely day out to the hospital!! Just waiting for Max to get an x-ray!!' 

The posts come after Kerry admitted she still doesn’t know what caused the abrupt illness that resulted in her own recent stay in hospital.

The star was rushed to the nearest A&E ward after falling violently ill in October, but following a three day stay and a battery of tests, she is no closer to establishing what prompted her symptoms. 

Writing in her new column, Kerry – who has since been released from hospital and will appear on Wednesday’s edition of Loose Women – told fans: ‘Woe is me, I’m writing this from my hospital bed! I’ve been here for three days and the doctors still don’t know what’s wrong with me.

‘Initially I thought it was bad case of kidney stones because the pain was so hideous, but that’s been ruled out. I’ve had a CT scan, an MRI and suppositories stuck up my bum – all sorts!’

Despite the dark cloud surrounding her illness, mother of five Kerry admitted there was a silver lining of sorts because it gave her a chance to temporarily relinquish her domestic responsibilities.

She added: ‘That said, I’m loving it a little bit – it’s a nice break from dealing with the kids and the housework! But just to reassure everyone, I’ll be alright. I’m not dying, I’m just in lot of pain.’

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 her late third husband George.

The TV personality previously uploaded a series of selfies to her Instagram account as she revealed she was in an accident and emergency ward. 

Sharing a shot of herself posing with a sad face, she captioned the first in her series of images: 'Sat in A&E,' following by another of herself hooked up to a drip as she informed her followers that she remained hospitalised.

In another shot posted several hours later, she was seen wearing an NHS-branded hospital gown as she smiled for the camera in a selfie captioned: 'Still in!!! Still no news!' 

However, Kerry assured her followers she wasn't going through her ordeal alone, revealing that her boyfriend Ryan Mahoney was right by her side.

Posing a picture of her beau leaning back on a chair as he sat at her bedside, she wrote: 'Bless him! Keeping me company.'
