Kerry Katona has revealed she’s “disappointed” with Paris Fury after the star said she would be "pleased" if her dog died.

The 30 year old wife of boxer Tyson Fury made the comments on Loose Women last week as the panel discussed pet bereavement.

Paris told Charlene White it wouldn't be a "sore miss" if her pooch Minnie was no longer around.

And now Kerry, 40, has criticised her for the comments. Writing in her new magazine column, she said: “I can’t believe Paris Fury said she would be pleased if her dog died while debating the topic on Loose Women.

“I lost my dog Paddy almost a year ago and I was heartbroken. I understand it’s not the same as losing a human, but animals are great for your mental health. You’ve got unconditional love from them and you don’t get any backchat!

“Paddy was my everything. It’s also the memories attached to him, in regards to DJ and her dad George and all the good times we had.”

The mum-of-five added: “I love the Furys, they’re a great family, but I’m taken aback by what she said. I’m shocked and a bit disappointed.”

Viewers were left horrified when Paris spoke out about her feelings towards her pet.

“The dog is here and if the dog was gone, I know it sounds cruel, but it wouldn't be a sore miss," she explained on the show.

“I'd actually be quite pleased because she's just another problem in the house. I've got five peeing, pooping machines in my house and then I've got the dog who's a peeing, pooping machine.

“Then I've got to feed them all, walk them all, wash them all… I just don't have the time to commit to this puppy dog.

"The kids are too young to do it all and what we said before, I'm the one who's been lumbered with the dog."

Fans of the ITV show took to social media to hit out at the star, with one writing: “As someone that would do anything to have their beloved little soul mate back, I am appalled by her utter lack of empathy.”

Another said: “Did Paris Fury actually just say she will be pleased when her dog is dead? What a vile statement," while a third added: “Give that dog to somebody who will appreciate it.”

A fourth wrote: “Paris Fury doesn’t deserve a goldfish never mind a dog.. That poor animal deserves someone who will love it and grieve when it passes away.. Made me sick when I heard what she had to say!!”
