Former Atomic Kitten star Kerry Katona has taken to Instagram in an emotional video and hits back at trolls who accused her of faking her car robbery.
The reality TV star, 41, revealed the SUV had been stolen while she was out Christmas shopping in the Elk Mill shopping park.
Kerry was out shopping with her young daughters Heidi and DJ as they were forced to watch on helplessly as thieves drove off in the bright blue Range Rover that was full of Christmas presents.
Sharing a picture of the shiny blue vehicle, she wrote over the top: "My car has just been stolen!!
"Please if you see it let me know Oldham area/Elk Mill shopping park or call police!!"
Kerry then captioned her post: "MY CAR HAS BEEN STOLEN PLEASE SHARE!!
“Oldham Area/Taken from Elk Mill Shopping Park. BLUE SUV RANGE ROVER REG: KA17 ONA. PLEASE CALL POLICE IF YOU SEE IT!”
"I chased them, good job I didn't get them,” she told her fans in an Instagram video.
“They could've had a knife or anything. I feel violated. "The kids are really shook up,” the star added.
Some commenters took to the post to suggest Kerry had faked the robbery as the car was about to be raffled off.
One said: “lol on a raffle but happens to get stolen.. someone’s careers has definitely hit a dead end huh.”
While another wrote: “That’s a lot of raffle tickets refund!”
