Kerry Katona has revealed that her drug taking was once so bad that she was convinced she would be outlived by Amy Winehouse.
Kerry - who has been clean for two years - told BBC Radio Five that she thought she'd never beat her battle with drink and drugs.
"The likes of Whitney and Amy back in the day - I really thought I would be first to die. I got massively lost in life," she said.
The reality star - who is rumoured to be opening a boot camp-style rehab clinic to help other addicts - turned to exercise in a bid to turn her life around but admitted she was 'high as a kite' when she turned up for her first bootcamp session.
"I went to boot camp and the first time I turned up there I was as high as a kite. A week-and-a-half through it, it was like coming out of a coma, the fog being lifted.
"Silly as this sounds, exercise changed my life. It was the first time I had a natural high."
It's not the first time Kerry has compared herself to the late Winehouse. In January she told Daybreak: "I look at the likes of Amy Winehouse, God rest her soul, and I found the strength to get out of the mess I was in.
"I have four beautiful healthy children, my career's going from strength to strength, and I'm happy and healthy and on top form."
