She went on to say: “I really want us all to come together and just try and be kinder to each!! For all us parents out there do we not want to set an example on how we treat others? now is the time to stand together and try and teach others how to be kind ❤️❤️🙏😘 Lets make 2020 count!!”

This comes after Kerry recently hit out at This Morning for calling her ‘irresponsible’ for promoting the products on social media.

Host Holly Willoughby 38, said: “Could an injection a day help melt the kilos away? That’s what Kerry Katona and Gemma Collins would have you believe after promoting the use of slimming jabs.”

Dr Zoe Williams then added: “I personally think it’s really irresponsible and dangerous, because they’re making it out you can lose magnificent amounts of weight using this drug, but the truth is you can’t.”

Kerry was quick to hit back, telling The Sun: “I think it’s very unfair they didn’t have any of us on there. I’m not promoting this just for a pay cheque.

“Of course I get paid, but I also use the product. There are celebrities out there that would promote something and not use the product. I need to know if it works – and it worked for me.”

The Skinnyjab injections has been endorsed by many celebrities including the former Atomic Kitten singer and Gemma Collins.

They work by by making you less hungry by regulating blood sugar levels and cost £250 for the first jab and £135 for top-ups.
