Kerry Katona has shared an unfiltered photo of herself, admitting that she is "hurting" and "hates herself" in a heartbreaking post.

However, the 40-year-old has vowed to work hard to change her outlook on life as she explained she feels "extremely miserable".

The former Atomic Kitten star also said that she was considering surgery.

Standing in front of a mirror, Kerry had pulled up her turquoise tank top to show her stomach and pulled a face.

Addressing her 735,000 Instagram followers, she declared that there would be "no more bulls***".

She also spoke about her use of the skinny jab - a fat-loss injection that has been flogged by a number of celebs including Gemma Collins - and claimed that after she stopped using it her body had "swollen".

After sharing the post, Kerry had pleaded with fans to not pass judgement and that she "just thought [she'd] share".

Kerry wrote: "Yep that’s me In all my glory!! No more bulls*** guys this is as really as it gets!

"No filter and no photo shop!! My nipples are so far down that I now trip over them… don’t worry I’m use to it now!
