KERRY Katona's mum has said she is lucky to be alive after suffering a string of heart attacks – and refusing to call an ambulance.
The Atomic Kitten singer revealed Sue was in hospital in an emotional post on Instagram on Saturday.
Speaking in an interview with OK! Magazine her 62-year-old mum said she was now recovering at home, as she described the terrifying moment she realised that she was in serious trouble.
She said: "I had a tight chest and a pain in my left arm, so I was using the medication I usually take for angina, which is a spray I put under my tongue.
"Once I’ve taken that, the pain usually goes away.
"But this time I felt that something wasn’t right. I kept getting a weird pain in my throat and I couldn’t get my head around it.

Sue admitted she ignored her symptoms and hoped they would go away.
She added: "I was in pain throughout the Wednesday night, right up until Thursday morning. By this point, I knew something was seriously wrong, so I ended up phoning an ambulance and they took me in.
