CBBC star Chelsie Whibley has died aged 29.

The actor who appeared in shows Dani’s house and Sadie J had cystic fibrosis. Her husband Glyn announced the news in a statement, saying Whibley died on Saturday (April 2).

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

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

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

He called Whibley an “inspiration” and added, “We will always love you.”

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited condition that causes sticky mucus to build up in the lungs and digestive system.

In 2020, Whibley advocated that lockdown restrictions should be eased so she could see her family.

“It feels like even more time is being taken from me,” she said The sun. “It’s just beyond heartbreaking.”

“I know seeing my friends and family is too dangerous and tipping my body over the edge might be enough. But then again, I don’t know how much time I have and it tears me up knowing I can’t see them.”
