There is very little that isn’t known about the one woman self publicity machine that is Kerry Katona but never has her rollercoaster existence come into such close contact with Chiswick until now.

The latest headline in the one time Atomic Kitten singer’s life is that her former cab driver husband Mark Croft has been accused of being unfaithful yet again. This time it’s with Chiswick based Samantha Riaz who claims she had a brief affair with Croft last summer after meeting him in a club. The 29 year old told The Sun that Croft initially tried to hide his identity by introducing himself a wealthy surveyor "I didn't know he was married." She said.

Miss Riaz claims that Croft made contact with her again last week to arrange a reunion. In a conversation taped by Riaz Croft purportedly said, "Kerry's alright, but, she's not my cup of tea. It's about the money, innit? Forget her."

PR guru Max Clifford responded to the allegations on behalf of his client Kerry Katona claiming “It's absolute nonsense. He's never even met this woman. The text messages are not from him and the voice in the phone call sounds nothing like him."

Last year Croft was accused of sleeping with a barmaid while his wife was pregnant with their daughter Heidi, an allegation which he denied. The couple are currently appearing on our screen in MTV reality show Crazy In Love.
