Kerry Katona's daughter Lilly, 18, says she turned down Love Island this year calling it her 'worst nightmare'

KERRY Katona's daughter Lilly McFadden has revealed how she turned down an offer to appear on Love Island this year.

Lilly, 18, admitted she said no to the ITV dating show as it would "be her worst nightmare" to have to be seen loved-up with a stranger on telly.

The daughter TV star Kelly, 40, and singer Brian McFadden, said while she was keen to get into show-business, Love Island wasn't the way forward.

As well as struggling with PDA, Lilly said she would be too embarrassed knowing her Catholic nan Mairead would be watching from home.

She told OK! Online: "It's not a bit of me – not in a rude way, it's a fun show – but if I was going to make a big TV debut, it would not be with Love Island."

The teen went on to explain that in "no disrespect" to the show, she personally disliked "being romantic" or showing off her body.

"I hate PDAs. I had a boyfriend for two years and I would not let him touch me in public," Lilly added, explaining she would bat him off in the pub.

"For most people going in the villa, being surrounded by all those hunky men, it's a dream come true – for me, it'd be my worst nightmare," she said.


Kerry's lookalike daughter went on to joke it would "kill" her Irish grandmother if she had decided to take part in this year's antics.

"As for my dad, he couldn't say much if I did choose to go down that path, I'm 18 years old," she continued of her parents opinion. "Of course I'd take his thoughts into consideration.

"My mum would be fine with it, she's made me who I am and I know she'd support me no matter what. My dad's a bit more stubborn, though."

Lilly shared her hopes of becoming a lawyer – a career path she said would "not be taken seriously" if she went on the dating show, concluding: "My friend says I'm going to be changing the world, not my bikini!"


Earlier this month, the teen was spotted modelling a green jumpsuit from mum Kerry's clothing range after she was signed up as a model.

Lilly-Sue was born from Kerry's first marriage to former Westlife singer Brian McFadden, which also produced eldest daughter Molly, 19.

The marriage lasted four years with Kerry going on to marry Mark Croft and late rugby star George Kay, having three more children: Heidi, 13, Max, 12, and Dylan-Jorge, six.

Kerry previously said she would love her to go on Love Island because it would make the family a “fortune”.

Writing in her New! magazine column, Kerry shared: "It wouldn't bother me in the slightest if my Molly or Lilly wanted to give it a go.

"I'd actively encourage it! Get on the telly, make a fortune and buy me a house please, girls!"

She doesn’t need to wait for her girls to get a house though – as she’s currently in the process of buying one of her own thanks to become a millionaire once again.
