Kelsey styled her long blonde tresses in luxurious waves as they cascaded past her bust to one side.

The event falls during SMA Awareness Month and is a genetic condition that weakens muscles, causes movement problems and worsens over time.

The event follows after Kelsey was dropped from the TOWIE cast last year.

The show’s bosses have been accused of acting ‘irresponsibly’ after they cruelly eliminated 10 young cast members ‘without warning’ when they told newbies ‘you’ll be a star’.

The devastated group, including Kelsey, was fired before the start of the 29th series in hastily arranged meetings last August, which many mistakenly believed were script consultations.

MailOnline has revealed the abrupt elimination left the cast ‘distraught’ after being sold off as a dream by TV bosses and are now facing financial hardship in incredibly tough economic times.

A talent management source told MailOnline: ‘It’s been a tough two years for most people financially, it was their career and TOWIE effectively fired a bunch of young people from their jobs and for what reason?

“There was no problem with anyone on the show, they could have given them another six months or the chance to look for other opportunities, but firing them all overnight was irresponsible.”

Other stars who have been written out of the show include Clelia Theodorou, Ella Rae Wise and Courtney Green.
