PADGATE popstar Kerry Katona has revealed that she could be suffering from the symptoms of the menopause.

She was taking part in a studio debate on GB News about new guidance from the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

This says that employers must make ‘reasonable adjustments’ for women dealing with the menopause.

The Atomic Kitten singer, a former Padgate High School pupil, told GB News: “Honest to God, at this very moment in time it’s like the River Thames down my top.

“I am sweating so much. I'm 43 and it's embarrassing. People don't understand what us women actually have to go through. The back of my knees are dripping.

“Now I don't know if it's from the hot coffee or I'm actually at that stage in my life where it is so embarrassing to be sat here and you're dripping, sweating.”

During a discussion with Stephen Dixon and Ellie Costello, she said: “Imagine as women we’re sat here presenting the show and we start having a hot flush, imagine being a saleswoman.

“I remember going with my mum to buy a mattress. She was going through the menopause.

“I kid you not, she was like a beetroot and the sweat that was dripping off her and she was so embarrassed, too embarrassed to leave her house.

“Can you imagine when it comes to that stage of your life and you have to go to work and you are a saleswoman.

“You eat anything, it's embarrassing, and it’s not just that, there’s also the depression side of it.”

She added: “But it doesn't only just affect you, it's affecting everybody you're living with.

“If you've got adult children, young children, your partner, the mood swings that are happening, the hot sweats, the flushing, everything.

“It's a very debilitating thing, but I don't think it is a disability because we all do have to go through it at some point, unfortunately.”
