Kerry Katona unveils her new body

Kerry Katona showed off the results of her tummy tuck and lipo after splashing out £12,000.

Instead of waiting until the New Year and attempting a fitness DVD or hitting the gym, she opted for a "mini tummy tuck" at the Belvedere Clinic in Kent so she looks good in her Christmas party dresses.

The Atomic Kitten star flaunted her newly-toned bod in a blue bikini for the first time during a flashy holiday in Abu Dhabi.

Kerry recently admitted she’s had "a s**t load of lipo" – but says the procedure is so normal, "it’s like going for an eye test these days!"

The star, 36, also had a tummy tuck at the same time, telling fans on Twitter that she’s been recovering from the operation.

Kerry admitted it was "a kick up the arse" and asked people not to judge her for it, adding the hashtag #dontjudge to her tweet, as she’s had five kids.

She still has a way to go to get back to her old figure, but she seemed confident with her new look as she played about pulling poses and flexing her muscles on the beach.

Kerry wore her bleach blonde hair up in a tight bun and showed off her glowing tan and tattoo collection in her swimwear.

She stretched after relaxing on a sunlounger showing the full results of her surgery and almost popped out of her top as she quickly grabbed hold of her assets.

It’s been a rocky road for Kerry, but she seems to be in high spirits at the moment and glad to be back working after previously struggling to make money for her family.

She is working with original member Natasha Hamilton and temporary recruit Michelle Heaton, who’s standing in for Liz McLarnon due to her fear of flying.

The singer retweeted well-wishes from fans after her recent op, with one commenter telling her: “Hope ur recovering well hun no shame in a bit of plastic surgery.”

Kerry then confessed she couldn’t wait to get back to the gym, because she "didn’t want to be the fat cat in the kittens" – as she’s touring Australia with an incarnation of Atomic Kitten in 2017.
