Kerry Katona reveals daughter DJ collapsed on holiday
The former Atomic Kitten told how DJ was rushed to hospital in Turkey after she lost consciousness after becoming overheated having her hair blow-dried.
Kerry Katona has told of her terror after her eight-year-old daughter collapsed while on a family holiday.
The 42-year-old former Atomic Kitten told how her youngest child Dylan-Jorge, known as DJ, was rushed to hospital in Turkey after she lost consciousness after becoming overheated having her hair blow-dried.
Katona told OK! magazine: “On the last day, I was blow-drying our DJ’s hair and she collapsed, with her eyes rolling back. It was the most terrifying thing ever. Ryan picked her up and ran outside with her to get some fresh air, and she just sat there staring at me and throwing up. The hospital said her blood pressure had dropped as she was overheated and hungry.

"DJ told me later she was so disorientated she thought Ryan was throwing her off the balcony! We just couldn’t wait to get on that plane to get her home."
DJ is Katona's daughter with late husband George Kay.
The reality TV star was on holiday with her personal trainer fiance Ryan Mahoney, who she met on dating app Bumble in 2018. He proposed in August 2020.
Katona revealed she had also been unwell during the holiday and had spent most of the time in bed with kidney stones.

She had feared the stomach pains were caused by problems from her recent cosmetic surgery.
Katona recently underwent a second 'tummy tuck' after revealing the procedure she originally had in 2021 left her "lumpy" and "swollen" because she went straight back to work instead of following doctors advice about resting.
Katona said previously: “I’ve been waiting so long for this surgery after having my tummy tuck in 2021 with a different clinic.
"My body hasn’t been the same since. My stomach was all swollen and all the fat was stuck at the top – it shouldn’t be like that. It was all lumpy and uneven.
“It was my own fault because I didn’t allow time for my body to recover. I went straight back to work when I should have been resting."
The reality TV star underwent a second abdominoplasty at a private hospital in Manchester on 23rd January and said she is "so happy" with the results.
The former I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! winner said: "And this time, I’m making sure I recover properly.”
She hopes to lose three stone by her 43rd birthday in September.
Katona said: "I’m going to look amazing. I am on a mission. Once I put my mind to something, I see it through. I am going to look phenomenal."
The former pop star underwent a series of breast reduction operations in the last year, which had also caused complications.
