THE Only Way Is Essex star Kelsey Stratford’s little sister has been rushed to intensive care after testing positive for coronavirus.
The TOWIE star, 20, said Kennedy, eight, had been rushed to hospital after falling ill and was then quickly moved to the ICU.
Kennedy was already diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a genetic condition that makes the muscles weaker and causes problems with movement.
The little girl already suffered breathing problems, which have now been made worse by Covid-19.
Kelsey announced the devastating news on her Instagram account on Sunday afternoon.
She said her family are “heartbroken” by the news but told fans that her sister is “really fighting”.
Taking to her Instagram, Kelsey said: “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
“So this is very dangerous for her.
“Kennedy was high risk to covid & we tried our best to shield her from this terrible virus but unfortunately because of her low immune system she caught it.
“She is in intensive care but really fighting like she always does, so I just need everyone to keep her in your prayers and hopefully she gets through this.
