George Kay has reportedly died aged 39.
Kerry Katona's ex-husband - who is the father of Kerry's youngest daughter Dylan-Jorge - passed away in Warrington, Cheshire from a reported drug overdose.
A source told the Mirror newspaper: "Kerry was told this afternoon that George suffered an overdose and was taken to hospital, but was declared dead on arrival. No one yet knows what he overdosed on or whether it was intentional or an accident.
"Kerry is heartbroken, he’s DJ’s dad and she loved him once. She can’t bear the thought of explaining to her daughter what has happened.
"She’s devastated. Kerry loved George once and, while she’s not had contact with him for a long time, it is a huge shock. Her younger kids, Max and Heidi, who she had with Mark Croft, loved George too and called him dad. She has no idea what to tell them."
