The 40-year-old singer met her partner Ryan Mahoney on online platform Bumble and now hopes she can help other people find their own “happy ever after” through a new matchmaking site.

She said: “I’m releasing a new dating app with Ryan this year called Marnii. The slogan is ‘everybody deserves a happy ever after.’ We met on an app and some people think they’re not destined for love or don’t deserve it. Ive been married, divorced, widowed, I’ve done them all.

"I thought I didn’t deserve to be in a relationship because it doesn’t work. For two years I was lonely, then I met Ryan. It doesn’t matter what you’ve been through, everybody deserves a happy ever after.”

Meanwhile, the former Atomic Kitten singer is also planning her and Ryan’s wedding – though she admitted she wants to tie the knot in secret with just her five kids present.

She said: “I’m looking forward to getting married this year. Although it makes my stomach turn a little bit when I say that, no offence Ryan. It scares me. I just want to go and get it done and not tell anybody.

“I think it’s because I’ve had so many failures at it, it just scares me. We’re not in a rush, but I think we’re probably going to do it in the summer. We just want to go to Vegas with just the kids.”

And now she’s recovered from coronavirus, Kerry’s also looking to get her health and fitness back on track.

Writing in her new! magazine column, she said: “Fitness and wellbeing is a massive passion of mine despite the fact I didn’t do much in the second lockdown with the dark, winter nights. Whether it’s January, December or August, I’m always on a health kick. It didn’t help that I caught coronavirus just before Christmas but I’m feeling lots better now. So I’ll be making sure I stay on track with my health."
