THE Only Way Is Essex star Kelsey Stratford’s little sister has been rushed to intensive care after testing positive for coronavirus.
Kennedy was already diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a genetic condition that makes the muscles weaker and causes problems with movement.

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”.
“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.
