Kerry Katona has infuriated fans with her April Fool's Day joke after she took to Instagram to post a fake pregnancy scan.

The former Atomic Kitten singer, 41, tried to convince her followers that she was expecting a child but ended up insulting many of them in the process.

She attempted to shrug off the onslaught of comments with a seemingly unbothered message: “Knew you lot wouldn’t bloody believe me.”

Angry fans retaliated with thoughts of their own as she tried to play off the situation.

One wrote: “Kerry Katona faking pregnancy for April fools then deleting it is just f***ing weird."

Another said: “Wrong Kerry, if this is an April fools joke. Pregnancy awareness and all that."

Others said that the post was “not funny” and that her attempt at an April Fools prank was “weird and insensitive”.

A spokesperson for the reality star released a statement about her behaviour.

They said: "It was an April Fools joke for her fiancé Ryan but she posted it to her public account and not her private one with very close friends by accident. Kerry herself cannot have any more children due to medical issues and has openly spoken about this in the past.

The message ended with a “sincere apology” to “anyone who is offended” and a reminder that she would “never post anything to purposely upset anyone”.

Kerry has five children and has been married three times.

She is currently preparing for her fourth as she is set to marry fiancé Ryan Mahoney, but recently called out her ex-husband over his parenting style.

Kerry and Brian McFadden were married for four years and the 41-year-old said that they have only been in the same room once since their divorce in 2006.

She wrote in New magazine that they have “never co-parented their children” and that she was “the one to parent them,” which has “always been that way”.

The star, who has gained more than 1 million subscribers on OnlyFans, has taken to selling her used underwear on the X-rated website.

She charges £19 a month for a subscription to her page, where she posts pictures and videos of herself.
