Recently bankrupt Kerry Katona is reportedly planning a budget wedding after being inspired by one she saw on ITV soap 'Emmerdale'.

The Atomic Kitten singer - who was declared bankrupt for the second time last month - was forced to cancel her wedding to fiancé George Kay after no longer being able to afford it.

However, she is now said to be planning a pagan 'handfasting', which united characters Brenda Walker and Bob Hope on the soap.

While the ceremony is not legally binding, Kerry sees it as a public declaration of their love until they are able to afford a proper wedding.

A source told The Mirror: “She knows it’s a bit bonkers but she was really touched by their ceremony. It’s not legally binding, but as far as Kerry is ­concerned it’s a public ­declaration of her love and commitment to George.

"She says once she has money again, she’ll get married ­properly but for the time being this is perfect," they added.

The couple are apparently set to tie the knot on 31 August - her daughter Molly's 13th birthday.

Kerry previously told New magazine that a wedding was 'no longer a priority'.

"Yeah, we can’t afford it. It’s not a priority – as long as we’re together, that’s the main thing," she said.

It was recently announced that Kerry is set to star as Marilyn Monroe in Norma Jeane The Musical.
