Kerry Katona has signed up for a stint on the Irish version of Gogglebox.

The former Atomic Kitten star, 43, will be an armchair critic on a celebrity edition of the TV show later this month.

But instead of being joined by a member of the family, she’ll be on the sofa dishing out her thoughts on the latest small screen offerings with comedian and writer Alison Spittle.
