Kerry Katona criticises women who take time off work periods
Kerry claimed that women shouldn’t take time off work during their time of the month.
Talking in her new column in New Magazine, the singer revealed her thoughts on the debate on whether women should get paid menstrual leave from work.
Kerry said: “We were talking about periods on my BBC podcast last week and I hear that Spain is passing the law to allow workers to take ‘paid menstrual leave’ from work.
“I mean we’ve all powered through so far, haven’t we? Keep hydrated, get paracetamol down you and a heated pad for your stomach.”

She explained that she ‘felt like I was dying’ as she was forced to do three panto performances while stricken with Covid.

Kerry said: “I did three panto performances with Covid, I felt like I was dying but I kept going. But that’s my work ethic, you’ve just got to crack on.”
Kerry’s comments came after her daughter DJ collapsed during a horrible accident while on holiday.
The singer revealed that she was drying her daughter’s hair when she collapsed and her eyes rolled back.
In her column for OK!, she revealed: “Then on the last day, I was blow-drying our DJ’s hair and she collapsed, with her eyes rolling back. It was the most terrifying thing ever.”
Luckily Kerry’s fiancé, Ryan, picked her up and ran her outside to get some fresh air.
Kerry revealed: “The hospital said her blood pressure had dropped as she was overheated and hungry.”
