Kerry Katona has reportedly bagged her first ever movie role after going from bankruptcy to millionaire again after launching OnlyFans account
Kerry Katona has reportedly landed her first movie role after becoming a millionaire again through OnlyFans.
The 43-year-old former Atomic Kitten star is set to star in a romantic comedy called Finding Forever due to start filming in spring. Rumour has it she will play character Nina Bennet, the co-owner of a beauty salon in the production by BUFF STUDIOS. A synopsis for the upcoming film on IMDb reads: “Can we be satisfied with one soul mate forever? Three best friends go on a life-changing trip to find out.”
It comes after Kerry, who has been declared bankrupt twice before making her fortune again on adults-only app OnlyFans, revealed she had signed up with acting agent Donia Youssef of Wonder Talent Management and “wants to be taken seriously as an actress”. She is now said to be training her butt off” in preparation for the role, which will be her first on the big screen following several TV appearances in reality shows like I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here, Celebrity Big Brother, Celebs on the Farm and MTV shows about her own life.
A source told The Sun: “Kerry is getting buff and training her butt off in prep – this is an intense and emotional six week intensive course and she is putting blood, sweat and tears into it. She is being professionally coached one-on-one by acting coach Antonia Doggett. Kerry has always been a good little actress, but respects that to act you require years of training. She doesn’t just want to play the part, she plans on nailing it.”
Just last month, Kerry appeared to tease fans of what is to come when she revealed she would love to be in a comedy movie. In her weekly column for OK! magazine, she shared: “I want to focus on acting this year and be taken a bit more seriously in that department. I’d love to star in a comedy, so we’ll see.” And it seems that acting runs in the family as two of Kerry’s daughters, Heidi, 17, and nine-year-old Dylan Jorge, known as DJ, are also looking to get into showbusiness and are reportedly signed to reps.
In her column, Kerry appeared to confirm this and said: “I headed to London at the weekend for work and I brought Heidi and DJ along for the ride. I had an event on Saturday where there were casting directors and people like that, so it was good to take the girls because Heidi and DJ are both really interested in acting. They’ve grown up around showbiz and it’s good to get their foot in the door.
Perhaps in preparation for the role, Kerry recently underwent eyelid surgery in a bid to make herself look younger and showed off the results of her upper blepharoplasty and brow lift last week. She had the procedures three weeks ago, exclusively sharing gory images of the invasive op with the Mirror. The mum-of-five had the treatment under general anaesthetic at Merseyside’s Pall Mall Medical Centre and was operated on by Mr Ullas Raghavan, who specialises in ear, nose and throat, as well as plastic surgery.
Kerry revealed last year she wanted work done to her eyes after noticing they had started to become “heavy” – and has also revealed plans for a nose job with the same surgeon. In November, she said: “Right, so I’ve come to the conclusion I’m going to get an eye lift. I am, watch this. They’re so heavy they’re hanging over my eyes. Why not, I’m 43, I’m entitled.”
