Arrested Development Poll Of Dysfunction

Kerry Katona’s family featuring her warring ex-husbands has been named as the world’s most dysfunctional family in a new poll which sees the Dancing on Ice star beating the Jackson pop dynasty and the fighting Gallagher brothers.

The poll, which quizzed 2,000 Brits, was commissioned to mark the launch of Arrested Development, the award winning comedy drama featuring an American dysfunctional family starting on TV channel FX (8pm, 8th February).

45% of Brits voted for Kerry and her kin, toppling the infamous Jacksons (36%) and Lohans (28%) into second and third place respectively.

The top ten most dysfunctional families in the world, voted by Brits are:

  1. The Katonas (45%)
  2. The Jacksons (36%)
  3. The Lohans (28%)
  4. The Osbournes (27%)
  5. The Gallaghers (26%)
  6. The Hiltons (21%)
  7. The Geldofs (20%)
  8. The Spears (17%)
  9. The Royal Family / The Windsors (11%)
  10. The Hamiltons (9%)

From starry beginnings in girl band Atomic Kitten to a more troubled recent history of two failed marriages, substance abuse and bankruptcy, Kerry Katona has seen more than her fair share of ups and downs. Kerry openly discusses her problems in regular interviews as well as her reality TV shows – allowing the public no holds barred access to her life.

Kerry and her brood also topped the list for the most dysfunctional family in Britain, as voted for by 62% of respondents. They were followed closely by the Osbourne family with 43%, the Gallagher Brothers (38%) and the Geldofs (33%), with The Rooneys (23%) coming in at fifth place.

The survey was commissioned by TV channel FX, ahead of the arrival of Arrested Development on the channel at 8pm on Tuesday 8th February.
