Kerry Katona can’t wait to meet her long-lost half brother after hiring a private detective to track down her biological family.
The former Atomic Kitten star says she brought in a PI to find her biological father.
And while she was happy enough at the time to receive a picture and a video of him, she regretted not meeting up with him when she found out he’d died.
Now, she’s making sure she has nothing left to regret by arranging to meet up with her half-brother.
An emotional Kerry took to Instagram to reveal that she’d just spoken to her biological sibling for the first time.
