Kerry Katona has started shopping for her new £2 million home, kicking things off with some art for the walls.

The thrilled 40-year-old took to Instagram to share with fans her high-end investment.

Kerry grinned as she stood in the art showroom next to three huge paintings featuring the classic Mona Lisa reimagined with graffiti and street art.

Alongside her post, Kerry wrote: "Still so giddy over the art I bought yesterday. @DomingoZapata, he's amazing. I got all 4! Can't wait to get them up."

The original Domingo Zapata paintings are on sale for £35,000. However, the US based artist has previously said that his paintings can reach $275,000, around £176,000.

The artist told Forbes: "The most I have sold a piece for is $275,000, and the average rate of a painting is probably in the $70,000 range."

However, a limited edition print of the La Gioconda Mona Lisa painting retails at around £1950.

The artist is popular with celebrities, and both Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio are reported to be fans of the artist dubbed “the next Andy Warhol”.

The paintings will fit in nicely at Kerry's new six-bedroom £2 million property boasting six bedrooms, a cinema room and her own walk-in wardrobe.

13 years after being declared bankrupt, the former Atomic Kitten star has managed to earn back her fortune and then some.

Kerry was keen to share her amazement with fans, saying that “even six years ago”, she wouldn’t have believed what she was capable of.

The former I'm A Celeb star revealed that the family had been renting since she faced bankruptcy in 2008.

“After losing EVERYTHING 13 years ago and having to rent, I’ve finally bought me a house!! I want to share this news because many times over the years, I literally felt suicidal! BUT I never gave up!”

The six-bedroom pad will be home to Kerry, her fiancée Ryan Mahoney and her five children – Molly Marie McFadden, 18. Lilly-Sue McFadden, 17, Heidi Elizabeth Croft, 13, Maxwell Mark Croft, 12, and Dylan-Jorge, five.

She didn’t reveal exactly where her new pad is, but did let fans know that she is “moving back up North”.
