However, she has taken issue with the fact that some news stories about her comments also referred to a “feud” with the presenter, saying her words have been “completely twisted”.
“Hang on a minute…. This is b*******!” she wrote on Instagram.
“I have NOT been feuding with Schofe for 13 years at all!!!! I absolutely adore Phil!!! We’ve been friends for a very long time!”
Katona’s appearance on the morning show sparked claims that she was intoxicated, but she was actually slurring because her speech had been affected by medication she was taking for bipolar disorder.
“My point of the story was how far we’ve come when talking about mental health!” the star, 40, wrote on Instagram.
“Philip has always been so lovely, not with just me but my kids too… so please don’t believe everything you read!
"This has been completely twisted.”
Schofield, 59, thanked Katona for wading in.
“Thanks darlin’, what can ya do eh,” he wrote in the comments section, along with a shrugging emoji.
“Sending loads of love and see you soon xx.”
Speaking on the Marnie’s Home Truths podcast this week, Katona told how she was called names such as "Merry Kerry" by the press after her This Morning interview and said the backlash left her wanting to take her own life.
"Never once did they say to me, ‘Oh, oh right - what’s bipolar and what’s the medication you’re taking?’ I didn’t get any of that,” she said.
"Next day, front page of the papers - ‘Sherry Kerry’, ‘Merry Kerry’. It was just awful.
“I was suicidal. I wanted to die, I wanted to kill myself. It was everywhere.”
The former Atomic Kitten singer said she had "no reason to lie" about whether she had been using drugs or drinking.
"I’ve got no reason to lie that that wasn’t drugs – if it was, why would I say it wasn’t?" she said. "It was pure bipolar medication.”
