MTV's Celebs on the Farm is back next month and Kerry Katona is taking part alongside fellow celebs Cheryl Hole, Duncan James, Harry Aikines-Aryeetey, Holly Hagan, Lady C, Linda Robson, Malique Thompson-Dwyer, Montana Brown and Shaun Williamson.

The new series, hosted by Stephen Bailey, will see the celebrities swap high heels for wellies and flat whites for flat caps, when they are introduced to day-to-day life on a working farm.

Asked just how hands on she got with the animals, Kerry, 40, replied: "Oh yeah, the ram we had to work with had got the biggest balls I’ve ever seen!

"We had to clip their nails. I just love the fact that we pimped up a ram and sent him off to play.

"I was like, “now you all know how I've got three men to marry me!”.

Asked what were the biggest challenges, Kerry replied: "I didn't like milking the cows. I actually got a bit panicky doing that.

"I didn't enjoy that one. You don't milk it by hand, it's a big machine, so you've got like 24 cows, 12 cows lined up on each end and you've got put these machines on the teats.

"It was just really noisy, and the cows are so big. I'm thinking, “I'm in their world”.

"I didn't mind milking the goats. That was all right.

"But I loved working with the calves. I adored the calves; I cried my eyes out when I had to say goodbye to them.

Kerry revealed she found lockdown tough at first because her home was incredibly busy with her two older daughters moving back in with her three younger children and boyfriend Ryan Mahoney.

"I love my family but I don't ever want to be in lockdown with all of them at the same time ever again!" she remarked.

"We had just moved from a three-story, six bedroom house because the oldest two girls had moved out and so we thought we'll downsize just around the corner to a two floor, four bed house.

Then both the girls ended up moving back home and Ryan's brother moved in with three dogs in a four bed house.

It was driving me crackers! So that’s why being on the farm didn’t feel like such a shock to the system, I was used to the chaos!
