Kerry Katona on cocaine addiction and help for addicts

Former pop star Kerry Katona claimed politicians do not want to deal with people with problems as she discussed her cocaine addiction.

During a debate about what the government should do for addicts with Michael Portillo, Alan Johnson and Andrew Neil, she explained how she spent £100,000 on rehabilitation.

The discussion was prompted by Iain Duncan Smith's speech to Alcoholics Anonymous, where he said the state must 'go further' to help addicts.
