She revealed: "If I'm honest, I've felt more lonely than ever during my recovery. Ryan was away getting a tattoo in London when I went into hospital and I haven't seen him since my surgery over a week ago. That upset me, because it made me feel unsupported and I could have done with the emotional support."

She continued: "I'm always the 'strong mum' in our house and this week I really wanted to be looked after and have him here, but I had my mum instead." Amid concerns from fans about the state of her relationship, Kerry's spokesperson stated they have "no comment."

Earlier in the year, Kerry expressed uncertainty about her wedding plans with fitness trainer Ryan, saying in January: "Ryan and I have been engaged for three years and I don't know if a wedding is on the cards this year. Maybe. We might just elope to Vegas - who knows! Lilly and her boyfriend might be before us."

The singer has also shared her apprehensions about marriage following her previous experiences. She first tied the knot with Westlife's Brian McFadden in 2002, only to divorce in 2006. Her second marriage was to taxi driver Mark Croft in 2007, which also ended in divorce by 2011.
