Kerry Katona's Ex Says 'I Couldn't Wait To Get Rid Of Her'

Kerry Katona and Mark Croft together - now he's 'happy' to be rid of her! PA

Pals of Kerry Katona say the mum of four is terrified she'll never meet Mr Right as her decree nisi -the first part of her divorce proceedings - was finalised last week.

Star magazine claims Kerry is 'more depressed than ever' about the state of her love life, reporting that she's 'panicking that no man will ever want her'.

They quote Kezza as telling a friend: 'I've got four kids and two divorces behind me. Who'd ever want that kind of baggage?'

Meanwhile, Kerry's ex-husband Mark Croft tells the mag 'I couldn't wait to get rid of Kez!'.

Despite that, Mark, 40, says he has no regrets over their failed marriage, but wants the decree absolute settled and for it to be 'game over':

"Put it this way," he says, "If I win the lottery now, Kerry still has a right to claim for it off me and I can do the same to her if she won - but once the decree absolute comes through, it's game over."

Mark - who is said to pay Kerry just £1.66 a week maintenance for his each of his children with her - also reveals he has nothing to do with her and does not speak to her unless it is about Max or Heidi:

"I don't want it any other way," he says, adding that he 'feels sorry for her' over her ITV2 show being axed because 'it is a big source of income' for her.

Mark insists that his life post-Kerry is happy and he is content in his new year-long relationship. He says he hopes that Kerry 'celebrates for the rest of her life' once their decree absolute comes though, claiming: "I am not bothered what she does and never will be".

Not a very amicable divorce then!
