Kerry Katona does not own the £2 million Cheshire mansion she has called ‘her home’, despite breaking down in tears and announcing she’d started a ‘new chapter’ in life when she moved in.
The former Atomic Kitten star, 40, has been giving fans a glimpse inside her property, which fans had believed she’d purchased.
However, MailOnline can reveal that she is actually renting the mansion in Alderley Edge on a six month contract.

Despite announcing back in May that she’d purchased a property, the sale ended up falling through, forcing Kerry to rent elsewhere while she looks for a forever home.
A spokesperson for Kerry told MailOnline: ‘The house Kerry bought has fallen through due to issues with the chain.
‘So because of this she is renting the property for six months whilst looking for a new home up north.’
The mansion Kerry is renting features a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and dressing room, and also has four double bedrooms and three bathrooms.
There is also an indoor cinema and games room, and Kerry is renting the property for £9,500 per month.

On Thursday, Kerry was seen crying tears of joy when she collected the keys to the mansion after giving fans a glimpse of her temporary new home, but it’s now been made clear that she’ll need to move out again in six months as she doesn’t own it.
The TV personality, who is originally from Warrington previously said she purchased a new home with her fiancé Ryan Mahoney 13 years ‘after losing everything’.
In May, Kerry wrote on Instagram: ‘Good morning you beautiful people!!! Well it’s official!! After losing EVERYTHING 13 years ago and having to rent I’ve finally bought me a house!!
‘I want to share this news because many times over the years I literally felt suicidal! BUT I never gave up! If I can turn things around and get back on top ANYONE can.
‘I’ve finally bought me a house!’ Kerry informed fans back in May that she had ‘bought’ a property but it appears the sale was still being finalised at the time
‘I’m not gonna lie Credit where credit due I’m really proud of myself. DONT EVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF!!!!!!!’
She added: ‘Doesn’t matter if others don’t believe in you just as long as you believe in yourself! Thank you @ryanmahony_7 for always having faith in me even when I didn’t. I love you
‘Even 6 years ago I never thought I’d be where I am today! It’s been bloody hard. Drugs, bankruptcy, bipolar, mental health, anxiety, divorcees breakdowns, car crash TVs WOW I honestly never thought I’d get through it all! But here I am.

‘Tell yourself every day you love yourself, tell yourself every day your worth it and never ever let other people’s opinions define you as a person!
‘Learn from it all, move on and help others️️️️ oh and yes.. I’m moving back up north.’
Last week Kerry praised herself and fiancé Ryan for working ‘really hard to turn it all around’ after overcoming her recent struggles, and described buying the home as ‘a new chapter’ in her life.
On Thursday, Kerry emotionally gave her fans a glimpse of the house she is renting, which features several luxury details such as a walk-in wardrobe, wooden beams, a state-of-the-art kitchen, glass staircases, feature windows and a sprawling garden.
She penned: ‘So proud of myself! Not ashamed to say it!’
The mother-of-five started her video saying: ‘So I woke up in my new house today, I want to give you a little bit of a sneak peek. That’s just the kitchen. I know right? I can’t believe it. I honest to God just can’t believe it.’
Kerry then gave a video tour as she explained: ‘Beautiful gardens. It’s a new chapter guys, a new chapter of… and it’s quite upsetting.

‘Crowborough [her former home] was the last place I had with George [Kay – her late ex-husband], closing the door on that. This is a new chapter, I feel really overwhelmed…’
Kerry continued: ‘The last time I lived here [Cheshire] I was doing loads of coke, loads of medication, lost all my money, surrounded by a bunch of d*******s who were just using and abusing me. Not only have I climbed halfway up, I’ve climbed all the way up to the top.
‘Who’d have thought I’d have made it through? If you were to put a bet at the bookies if I was going to end up dead, I would have took that bet. But now I’m here…’
Kerry has previously revealed she started taking drugs aged 14 and openly spoke about her bipolar disorder and addiction issues in the past. She checked herself into rehab in 2008 and 2010.
The sober star’s troubled times are now behind her and she said that she was looking forward to her five children – Molly, 19, Lilly-Sue, 18, who she shares with ex-husband Brian McFadden, Heidi, 14, Maxwell, 13, with ex Mark Croft, 49, and Dylan-Jorge, seven, whose father George tragically passed away in 2019, seeing the home.

Kerry continued: ‘I can’t wait for the rest of the family to get here. Just leaving Crowborough [old house] was bittersweet really.
‘They are my last memories with George and DJ. It upsets me because DJ was only five. Look how far we’ve come. She’s a great kid and she’s going to have a wonderful life.’
Ending her video, the reality star praised her fiancé Ryan, she said: ‘None of this, I wouldn’t have been able to do any of this without my Ryan. He’s just been… amazing. He really has.
‘If anyone’s hating on me, f**k you all, I deserve this and I’ve worked really hard to turn this all around. I did it. Me and Ryan are entrepreneurs and we’ve been creating this little empire of ours and I’m so super proud. So so super proud. Ryan has just been the best thing I’ve ever swiped for or dated in my life.’
