Brian McFadden touched down at Heathrow Airport today as he prepared to confront his former wife Kerry Katona over custody of their two children. The former Westlife singer flew in from Australia, where he now lives with his singer fiancee Delta Goodrem.
Souces say Katona, 28, fears she could lose custody of their daughters Molly, seven and Lily Sue, six, after she was caught on film last month snorting cocaine at home.
The girls were said to be in the house at the time, and now the former Westlife star, 29, who was married to Katona for four years, is apparently consulting his lawyers, claiming she is an unfit mother.
The source added: 'Brian knows it will destroy Kerry if she loses her children but feels she has left him no choice.'
It has been reported that the reality star has made a series of phonecalls to Brian to discuss the children a claim she vigorously denies. A spokesperson told MailOnline today: 'They have not been in contact at all.'
Since the footage of her drug use, for which she was cautioned by the police, Katona has been dumped from her £250,000-a-year deal with food giant Iceland.
She told her 5,000 Facebook friends: 'First off I just want to say how sorry, ashamed and embarrassed I am over my recent actions in the press.
'I know I've let a lot of people down, my [friends] (so called), my fans (what I've got left), my work colleagues and more so my family!!! I've only got my self to blame.'
