She had been battling cystic fibrosis, a condition where mucus builds up in the lungs and digestive system.

Her lungs were heavily scarred and no longer operable, functioning at just 25 per cent of their normal capacity.

Chelsie had to take a cocktail of around 60 pills a day to manage her illness.

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

Chelsie told the Sun at the time: “For me, every day is so precious that spending them under lockdown is like having them stolen.

“It feels like even more time is being taken away from me.

“It’s just heartbreaking beyond words.
