'Is it me?' Kerry Katona tries on a Thelma Madine-designed wedding dress on This Morning

Kerry Katona's boyfriend Steve Alce already knocked her back when she proposed twice during Leap Year.

And after watching his girlfriend wearing a bright pink wedding dress on This Morning today, you couldn't blame him for wanting to run a mile.

Fortunately, Katona wasn't seriously trying on the dress for size, she was simply modelling the flamboyant creation for a TV segment on My Big Fat Gypsy Weddings gowns.

As regular contributor on This Morning, the mother-of-four was asked to model a large strapless gown designed by Thelma Madine - known for her over-the-top wedding dresses for the travelling community.

Former Atomic Kitten star Katona, 32, ended up trying on a 9 1/2 stone pink number, which she admitted made her feel like Barbie.

Katona also compared the dress to the one worn by Katie Price at her 2005 wedding to Peter Andre, which has inspired many traveller weddings in the popular Channel 4 documentary series.

She uploaded a photo of herself wearing the dress on Twitter, writing: 'What do you think guys? Is it me?'

This Morning host Holly Willoughby also wanted a piece of the action and tried on one off-camera, which ended up on the show's official Twitter page.

Katona revealed last week how she had proposed to Alce on holiday in Dubai last month.

The couple have been dating since October and he moved into her Surrey home a few weeks ago.

However, Alce turned her down when she popped the question - twice.

She said: 'I would marry Steve in a heartbeat if he ever asked me and I actually asked him twice to marry me on February 29.

'But he didn't respond and instead just made a joke of it, even though I was being sincere.

'I'm also very old-fashioned - I think it's wrong for a woman to ask, but he's missed his chance now anyway.'

Katona has previously been married to Irish singer Brian McFadden (2002-2004) and taxi driver Mark Croft (2007-2010).

Alce has a 14-year-old daughter and 12-year-old son from a previous relationship.
