Just hours later however she claimed that she had only drunk water during the evening and was “pretending” to drink alcohol on stage.

Kerry was in the city to help award scores to a number of drag queens strutting her stuff on the night.

She was in high spirits when she arrived and later headed out for dinner with her pal, Celebrity Big Brother star Austin Armacost.

However she stunned later in the evening, when she branded her Atomic Kitten bandmate a “toxic c***” and slammed Gemma Collins as a “nobody”.

During the night out, Kerry also opened up about that infamous interview on This Morning back in 2009.

Viewers thought she was drunk but she claimed it was because of the medication she was on for bipolar disorder at the time.

In a furious rant on stage at an event in Manchester, Kerry once again insisted it wasn’t her fault.
She said: “I’m being paid to be here, this is f***ing great.

“I could be back on This Morning with Phillip and Fern slurring my words.”

Her co-host Danny Beard of BGT fame, said: “You weren’t off your face, we’ve all been on a night out and had to go to work the next day.”

But she disputed what he said and replied: “But you know the sad thing was Phillip was with me the f***ing night before.”

Appearing to slur her words, she said: “Listen, I’m so sorry was you on the same thing for the second half that I was on on This Morning? Carry on lying love.”

Kerry, 37, also referred to her ex George Kay as her “husband”.

Discussing her varied career, she said: “At one point I felt like Alesha Dixon… but the wrong colour. But that’s OK, because my husband’s black I can say that”.

Danny replied: “But to be fair, you’ve had more hits than Alesha Dixon” and Kerry responded “Who, sorry, who?”

Kerry ranted about the incident during the night

During the raucous night , she also called Atomic Kitten bandmate Natasha Hamilton a “toxic c***” and asked the crowd “who the f*** is Gemma Collins?” before joking about her kids being babysat by social services.

In the onstage rant, she also made references to her bankruptcy and tried to hurry the show up because she was “only being paid until midnight”.

“You’ve got ten minutes left, for f***’s sake. I thought I could talk.”
