Who is Kelsey Stratford dating?
In a recent interview with OK! Online with her co-star Bobby Norris, Kelsey revealed that she was not currently dating anyone.
The star said: “Do you know what, Bob, for the first time in ages it’s non-existent! I have no man in my life. I’m enjoying being single and finding myself, because when I was 14 I got into a relationship for five years.
“So I’ve never, ever been single. I’m enjoying focusing on myself until the right one comes along.”
Who are Kelsey’s family?
Kelsey has a very tight knit family. The star suffered a terrible tragedy when her younger brother passed away back in 2013 from spinal muscular atrophy (SMA).
The disease can take away people strength, as well as their ability to walk, eat, and even breathe in the worst case scenario.
Last month Kelsey shared the devastating news that her younger sister Kennedy, eight, who also has SMA, had been rushed to hospital after contracting coronavirus.
Posting to Instagram the star wrote: “Life is so cruel. My little sister kennedy got rushed into hospital yesterday and tested positive for COVID19, we are all so heartbroken as kennedy has severe breathing problems from her terminal illness SMA as it is.”
However two weeks later she shared her joy that Kennedy had been released from hospital.
The TOWIE star said: “She’s coming home from hospital today!!! Believe i cried happy tears all morning she’s the best xxxxx”.
What does Kelsey like most about being on TOWIE?
Kelsey told Bobby, in an interview with OK!, that she likes being on the show as she is able to campaign for awareness for sister’s illness.
The 20 year old said: “I got to speak about my little sister’s illness – she has spinal muscular atrophy, which means she’s paralysed from the neck down – and I’ve loved speaking about that.
“We’re doing a charity fundraising day on TOWIE. I’ve always wanted to do something like that.”
She then added: “I’ve had hundreds of messages, loads from families going through the same thing. And everyone’s just saying they’re proud of me.
“It was hard because I don’t really like speaking about it as I get upset, but I’m glad I did it.”
