Kerry Katona's divorce from husband Mark Croft has been finalised during proceedings the High Court in London.
It took just 47 seconds for a judge at the institution to grant a decree nisi to the couple - who married in 2007 and have two children together - but have been apart for more than a year after agreeing to a separation.
During this ruling, it was decided that the couple's offspring - four-year-old Heidi and three-year-old Maxwell Mark - will stay in the custody of their mother, who has recently starred in the 2011 version of Celebrity Big Brother.
The former Atomic Kitten singer also has two children from her previous marriage to Westlife star Brian McFadden and is now reportedly romantically involved with fellow Big Brother contestant and Waterloo Road actor Lucien Laviscount.
Within the divorce hearing at the High Court, the presiding judge indicated he was issuing a decree nisi on the grounds of both party's "unreasonable behaviour".
