Reality TV star Kerry Katona holidays at Seton Sands
Where do reality TV stars go to escape from the pressures of the celebrity lifestyle and the relentless attentions of the Paparazzi?
The answer appears to be a relaxing trip to a picturesque seaside getaway in East Lothian.
Kerry Katona – recently pictured enjoying the sunshine of Gran Canaria – is staying at Seton Sands Caravan Park.
The singer posed happily for snaps with fans as she visited the popular family holiday village.
Katona, 35, has been spotted enjoying the entertainment there and stocking up on supplies at the local shops.
More used to being seen on glossy magazines, the mum-of-five is enjoying a break in Scotland with her family.
Famous as the face of TV advertising campaigns for Iceland, she was happy to settle for the Co-op in nearby Port Seton when she dropped by the Links Road store.
The store manager, however, admitted he knew nothing about the celebrity visitor until he saw photographs of her posing with staff appear on Facebook.
Staff in the store shared pictures of Kerry’s visit on Co-op colleagues Facebook page and on Twitter Anne Love posted a selfie with Kerry, tweeting: “Going to enjoy spending a few days with our Kez and the gang at my bestie’s caravan.”
Social media has been flooded with sightings of Kerry, who is a member of girl band Atomic Kitten and has appeared in reality shows.
She was crowned Queen of the Jungle when she appeared on I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here, and was runner up in Celebrity Big Brother in 2011. She is also a regular on ITV chat show Loose Women.
The area has plenty of family-friendly leisure activities, including those at Haven’s Seton Sands Holiday Park.
It also boasts a popular coastal walk as a part of the John Muir Way, while Cockenzie and Port Seton are twinned with the town of Barga in Tuscany.
Port Seton has several historic churches including Seton Chapel, an ancient monument in the care of Historic Scotland.
Friendly locals were full of suggestions for how she might spend her time.
Paula Redpath, @paulamuppet, tweeted: “I think you should come along to kettlebells 2moro Kerry since ur here in Seton Sands.”
Anne Love, who was with the reality star at the caravan park, said: “I’m sitting here with her just now. The kids all playing away . . . she’s having a lovely holiday and her fans have all been great. I’ve just brought a fan up to meet her and she’s absolutely great with them.”
Retired fisherman Archie Johnston, 80, suggested she might like to try out the rowing club or watch the fishing boats.
