Kerry Katona has quit army-based reality show Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins after just two episodes.

The former Atomic Kitten star decided to exit the programme after failing to complete 50 press ups on Sunday's episode of the reality show.

While struggling to complete the task, the mother-of-five was slammed by Anthony 'Staz' Stazicker, a former soldier and member of Chief Instructor Ant Middleton's Directing Staff, who put a host of celebrities through an intensive military training course.

Staz shouted at Kerry, "Get off your knees number one! If you don't want to be here, stand up."

The 41-year-old then stood up and took off her contestant arm band, leading Staz to ask, "Are you sure you wanna be doing this?" to which she replied, "Yes", and walked off.

Later speaking to Middleton, the star quipped: "It's been amazing. I have actually loved it. I've never looked at myself as a failure, but you kick yourself if you can't do something. I might not have come in first but I've got from the bottom to the top and then back to the bottom."

She later added on Instagram: "Turned out I wasn't made for the SAS! @sas_whodareswins will hang my head in shame (sic)! Nah even in the little time I was in there which felt like a forever.. I realised I never have to prove myself to anyone ever again (sic)!

"I am me! Take it or leave it! I've gotten through so much s*** in real life... and I'm actually proud of myself (sic)!"

Kerry also told the Daily Mirror that shouty Ant, who was dropped from the Channel 4 show after the filming of the series due to his "personal conduct", gave her flashbacks to her troubled relationship with her abusive late ex-husband George Kay, who died in 2019.

"There was one point where Ant grabbed me and he said: 'You've got f***ing more to prove than anybody else, just own that.' I couldn't sleep that night," she explained. "He didn't mean to... he just kind of catapulted me back to when George used to spit in my face."

Following Kerry's departure on Sunday's episode, pop star Alexandra Burke, TV presenter Ulrika Jonsson, and retired England soccer star Kieron Dyer are among the remaining contestants.
