Who was Chelsie Whibley?

Chelsie Whibley, from Denmead, Hampshire, was an aspiring actress who appeared on popular CBBC shows such as Dani’s House and Sadie J.

She has also appeared in pantomimes alongside House of Cards star Kate Mara.

Born in 1992, Chelsie had to put her acting career on hold after suffering from cystic fibrosis at the age of 20.

How did Chelsie Whibley die?

Chelsie was rushed to Southampton Hospital on Saturday 2 April 2022 and died at around 2.45pm.

She had been battling cystic fibrosis, a condition that causes mucus to build up in the lungs and digestive system.

Her lungs were badly scarred and inoperable, functioning at only 25 percent of their normal capacity.

Chelsie had to take a cocktail of about 60 pills a day to keep her illness under control.

The hereditary condition meant she had to undergo extensive treatment in her own home during the pandemic.

Chelsie told The Sun at the time: “Every day is so precious to me that keeping it locked up is like stealing it.

“It feels like I’m being taken even more time.

“It’s just unbelievably heartbreaking.

“I know seeing my friends and family is too dangerous and tipping my body over the edge might be enough.

“But on the other hand I don’t know how much time I have and it tears me up knowing I can’t see them.

“I love them all so much and just want to be with them because I know I don’t have much time left.”

She had been ordered to isolate indefinitely, preventing her from spending time with her nieces and nephews.

Was Chelsie Whibley married?

The ex-CBBC star tied the knot with Glyn Whibley, 33, in August 2014.

Paying tribute to Chelsie, he said: “I’m afraid this is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write.

“This morning Chelsie was rapidly deteriorating and unresponsive. She was taken to Southampton General Hospital.

“It is with the deepest regret that I must announce to everyone that our dearest beautiful Chelsie sadly passed away at 2:45pm this afternoon.

“It was very quick and she wasn’t in pain. I know you all want to offer your condolences, but we ask that you confine yourself to the comments below at this very distressing time.

“To my beautiful inspiration woman, we will always love you.”
