KERRY Katona has been attacked again by Real Housewives of Jersey's Tessa Hartmann, who said she won't be "lectured" by someone who "sells naked images".
The former Atomic Kitten singer, 40, debated the reality star on whether it was right for New Look to sell padded bikini tops for young girls.
The war of the words got very heated, with Tessa accusing Kerry of letting her teenage daughters Molly and Lily-Sue – who she shares with ex Brian McFadden – take naked pictures of her.
Kerry strongly refuted this claim and even said the Real Housewives star should be "arrested".
Now Tessa has hit out at Kerry again, calling the singer's position on the swimwear "hypocrisy".
Sharing a photo of herself alongside a bikini on a mannequin, she wrote: "Interesting debate on @gmb this morning! Despite it being 3 against 1 I absolutely stand my ground.
"The @newlook bikini in question takes inspiration from @triangl . A classic trick of many high street retailers, allowing us to have a designer look at an affordable price. The collection is aged 9-15 years and yes to achieve the neoprene look they have used a very thin foam (about 2mm I reckon) shape the top.
"It’s not a big pad by any means, nor is it provocative. In fact I’m sure many young girls who are self conscious about their puberty developing from aged 9 upwards in some, would have given their right arm for a bikini that protected their modesty when getting out of the pool.
"I know my girls would loved that slight foam finish to remove their embarrassment from their nipples showing through their bikinis. This foam finish is to protect girls insecurities, it’s to make them feel less self conscious.
"My goodness training bras have more padding! But alas let’s take aim at one of the few high street retailers who are struggling to keep their head above water in these challenging economic times and target their range as sexualising young girls ?? Really?
"Are we going to pretend that 9-15 years don’t have emotions and aren’t hugely self aware of their growing breasts, desperate to protect their modesty at the same time ? Time to get a grip!
"Plus if I’m going to be lectured on the ‘sexualisation’ of a bikini, I would rather it not be from a lady who sells naked images for monetary gain.
"I am all from women being free to make their own choices but let’s accept the hypocrisy and irony here!
"Frankly I would worry more about the exploitation and pressures of young girls on these social media accounts than I would about my daughter wearing this bikini on a beach. But perhaps I’m just a little old fashioned."
During the row on GMB, Kerry – who is mum to five children including four daughters – said: "The world's gone mad!"
She added she was "really gobsmacked" by the swimwear, going on: "It's so wrong, children need to be children."
But Tessa argued the bikini top does "protect the modesty" of young girls – and would stop them from being self-conscious.
Insisting that she'd never put her young daughter in a padded bikini around strangers at a swimming pool, she continued: "That is almost like dangling a carrot in front of a paedophile."
Tessa hit back: "But it's okay for your teenage daughters to take the photos of you naked to put on a social media site? But you won't let them wear a bikini that covers your modesty?"
Confused Kerry was furious, correcting: "My children do not take pictures of me naked, you've got it completely wrong!
"My children take pictures of me in a bikini or in my underwear, I'm 40 years old. That is an over-18 site, why would a nine-year-old child be Googling topless pictures in the first place?
"What I do for an over-18 site is completely different to giving a nine-year-old child padded breasts."
Kerry's daughter Molly later said she "spoke very well" as she defended her mum on the issue.
"You made a very good point," the teen said to her mum in the Instagram video before adding, "it was sad to see a grown woman in a debate couldn't make a valid point".
Kerry agreed with her daughter and accused Tessa – whom she'd "never heard of" – of resorting to a "personal attack".
"To compare a 40-year-old lady on an over-18s site to a nine-year-old child wearing padded bras, is absolutely disgusting," Kerry declared.
"She should be bleeding arrested."
Kerry also defended Lilly-Sue taking her pics for the adults only subscription site as she was 18 and older daughter Molly was 20.
To that point, Lilly-Sue shouted off camera: "We came out of her vagina, we've b***dy seen it all."
