Looking back at photos from as recently as May, it is clear the 57-year-old wasn’t well even though she managed to carry on smiling and working.

In February, Kelly was snapped as she filmed a movie in Mallorca while accompanied at all times by her daughter Ella Bleu Travolta.

Kelly looks casual in a khaki green jacket with a black top and trousers, on her back is a massive blue rucksack.

In another photo, taken in April, taken from a video of the family wishing their fans a happy Easter Kelly looks visibly frail as she sits next to her children on the sofa.

He shared a photo of Kelly last night and told his fans: “It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer.”
