THE future husband of Kerry Katona has been detained by police under the Mental Health Act.

It has been reported that George Kay, who is set to become the singer’s third husband later this year, had to be overpowered by officers after he was found running down the road outside the couple's home in Oxford.

Police were called by a female motorist on Thursday who saw the former rugby league player and body guard behaving in a very agitated manner.

Kay was taken to hospital by an ambulance where he was later discharged

A spokesman for Thames Valley Police confirmed the police were called to a road in Chinnor shortly after 6pm following concerns for the welfare of a 34-year-old man, who was detained at the scene and taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.

The tabloid favourite from Padgate has yet to comment on the incident.

It is understood there are no plans for further police action in the matter.
