Former Atomic Kitten star Kerry Katona has shared a glimpse of her wedding dress ahead of her marriage to 32 year old Ryan Mahoney.

In order to find the perfect gown, Kerry has turned to fashion pro Gok Wan for help.

Although Gok is no stranger to styling women, when OK! caught up with him, he admitted that he was ‘nervous’ ahead of Kerry’s arrival at the Say Yes To The Dress Lancashire bridal boutique.

“I was actually quite nervous about the whole thing. With someone like Kerry who’s been in the media her whole life you don’t always know what you’re gonna get. But when she walked in she was so lovely and so generous with her story.”

Gok went on to say that Kerry “talked in great depth about her ex relationships and her struggles and all the other reasons why she was with me in the boutique. It was a great day.”

The 46 year old fashion journalist turned TV style guru also gave us the scoop on how Kerry handled the unavoidable pressure that comes with being a bride.

He said: “It’s a scary thing regardless of whether you’re used to being in the public eye or standing in front of a camera. She’s still getting married and for any bride it’s all eyes on you.”

Gok continued: “With Kerry that’s magnified. She’s got a lot to live up to and it’s a really emotional story. It’s a beautiful episode and I really enjoyed it.”

Since we spoke with Gok, TLC have released a teaser clip of Kerry trying on dresses in the boutique. In the snippet she explains: "I'm here today to find my final wedding dress ever," referencing her previous marriages to Brian McFadden, Mark Croft and the late George Kay.

When she sees herself in the gown Gok has pulled for her, she exclaims: "Wow!"

The dress in question is a stunning white sleeveless number with a sweetheart neckline and sequin details. It also boasts a slit up the leg and has a lengthy train.
