Kerry Katona backed by Iceland

Kerry Katona's contract with Iceland is up for renewal in April

Frozen food retailer Iceland has given its support to Kerry Katona following her appearance on ITV1's This Morning programme on Wednesday.

The company's issued a statement saying the former Atomic Kitten singer "remains under contract".

It's after she repeatedly slurred her words during an interview with hosts Phillip Schofield and Fern Britton.

The 28-year-old said it was because she took medication for her Bipolar Disorder too late the night before.

The firm said Katona was "dependent on medication for her bipolar disorder and if this medication isn't taken at the correct time it will result in her appearing disorientated and slurring her words".

The company said it had "first hand experience" of the reality TV star slurring her words but said she had always been able to resume her work "after a short period".
