  Celebs who grew up in care
Updated 16 February 2004, 15.04
Kerry McFadden grew up in care
Thousands of children spend time in care while they're growing up so it's no surprise some turn out to be famous.

Queen of the jungle and former Atomic Kitten Kerry McFadden went into care when she was 13 because her mum wasn't able to look after her.

She lived with foster carers called Mag and Fred until she was 16, and still keeps in touch with them.

Talk to someone

Comedian Neil Morrissey spent seven years, from the age of 10 to 17 in care, spending most of his time in a children's home.

Kylie's famous ex, photographer and presenter James Gooding was also in care for a while and advises anyone in care who's worried about things to talk to their social worker and foster parents.
