The Atomic Kitten star's former partner tragically died in Cheshire earlier this year. George Kay died in July at the age of 39 - and left Kerry "angry", she admitted. The mum has a daughter - Dylan-Jorge - with George, and admitted "he's better off where he is" after his death. Appearing on the ITV1 daytime favourite, Kerry told the panelists as they welcomed her onto the show she was "angry that he left his baby girl".
Speaking to Loose Women, Kerry said: "He gave me hell when he was alive. He's better off where he is. He was so unhappy on this earth." She added: "He had so many demons, so many issues, we thought when DJ was born he'd change his ways, he had chance after chance. He was never going to change, never going to change." George died following a suspected overdose after concerned Holiday Inn staff called Cheshire Police and North West Ambulance Service to the venue in Wood Lane, Sutton Weaver, in Runcorn. "I left George because of what he was doing," Kerry said after commenting that his alleged drug use made her feel "worthless". The 39-year-old continued: "I didn't make him do anything he didn't want to do. I won't be blamed for his death." She added: "He [George] didn't take his life. It was an accidental overdose. George was too vain to kill himself. "George had very many issues. "By the time I'd worked all these issues out, I was already madly in love with him, we had a baby on the way. "We'd known each other since we were 14. I always fancied him, he always fancied me. "When the violence started, it's almost like you're being groomed. Everyone says, 'Why didn't you walk away?'"

"I feel guilty DJ didn't get to see her dad for a year," the singer said. "I'd hand DJ over to her dad, and I would fear I wouldn't get her back. He would spit in my face and DJ would start to spit in my face. "I know if I'd have stayed with George I'd be dead. I know it 100 per cent.
