Kerry Katona has revealed competing on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins was like therapy for her.

The I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! winner admitted she didn't get any counselling after being involved in the gruelling and challenging show as taking part felt like "huge therapy" as it gave her "massive closure".

"I haven't had any therapy from doing the show, I think the show itself for me, was therapy in a really weird way," the former Atomic Kitten star said, reports the PA news agency. "Whether it was physical or when you are being spoken to or shouted at, for me, that was therapy. I think I got so much closure from doing that show for my own personal life.

"It really opened my eyes up to who I am, and the worth of who I am and about not having to prove anything to anybody. So for me, it was huge therapy and massive closure."

However, the 40-year-old admitted that shooting the show in the cold and wet weather in the Scottish Inner Hebrides was just as difficult as the challenges themselves.

"I have bipolar, my moods change with the weather, so when you are in an environment that is just so f**king miserable, it's really hard to get your mindset as, 'Right let's get up and put these wet clothes back on,'" she shared.

The first episode, which airs on Channel 4 on Sunday, follows the 12 celebrities as they have to swim to a remote island after being dropped in the sea by a speedboat. The experience lasts eight days.

Other celebrities taking part in the show include singer Alexandra Burke, presenter Ulrika Jonsson, Olympic gold medallist James Cracknell, and TV personalities Wes Nelson, Ore Oduba, Saira Khan, Vicky Pattison, and Jake Quickenden, among others.
