She said: "I couldn’t afford to pay my rent. I thought, 'Oh my God, how am I going to feed the kids?'"

The mother-of-five discussed the impact that her money problems had on her mental health, to the point where she was having suicidal thoughts.

"There’s been times when I've been ­wanting to drive my car off a bridge because I think, 'How am I going to clothe these five kids?' I understand the anxiety over money."

However, since joining OnlyFans during the pandemic, Kerry’s money worries have become a thing of the past.

But she was quick to point out that she wasn’t doing it for bragging rights, stating: "This isn't about bragging. You've all seen my story. You've all seen my at my lowest, where I could have died, I should have died.
