Kerry Katona wants her daughter to play her in a biopic.
The former Atomic Kitten singer thinks she’s the ideal candidate to portray Dame Julie Walters on the big screen but if a movie was ever to be made about her own life, she thinks 16-year-old Lilly-Sue – her second child with ex-husband Brian McFadden – would be the perfect choice for the lead role, even though she has a different accent.
She wrote in her ‘Keeping Up with Kerry’ column for new! magazine: "If I were to play anyone in a biopic it would be Julie Walters, but if I had to have someone play me, it would be my Lilly.
"She’s a carbon copy of me. It’s a shame she can’t do a northern accent though."
But after Sophie Turner recently admitted she’d be interested in playing Boy George in a biopic, Kerry – who also has Molly, 17, with Brian, Heidi, 12, and Max, 11, with second husband Mark Croft, and five-year-old Dylan-Jorge with estranged third spouse George Kay – isn’t so convinced she’d want someone of the opposite sex depicting her.
She added: "I love that Sophie Turner wants to play Boy George in a film about his life. If you stick some dreadlocks on her they will definitely look alike…
"I’m not sure I’d want to have a man play me. At least Boy George wore make-up – but it’s not like I go around with a sock down my pants!"
Kerry’s comments come a week after the Culture Club frontman admitted he thought the idea of having Sophie play him was really "interesting".
Asked who would play him, he said: "There’s been some really interesting suggestions. One of the most interesting suggestions was Sophie Turner.
"[People will say] she can’t play you she’s a woman, you know. But when I was 17, I would have loved to have been her."
And in response, the ‘Game of Thrones’ actress – who is married to Joe Jonas – tweeted: "I’m SO down @BoyGeorge."
