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

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

Chelsie had previously been ordered to quarantine indefinitely because she was deemed “high risk” of becoming seriously ill if she contracted Covid-19.

She has previously spoken openly about how she longed for lockdown to be over so she could see loved ones again.

“It feels like I’m being taken even more time. It’s just beyond heartbreaking,” she said.

“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 breaks me knowing I can’t see them,” she told The Sun.

There is no cure for cystic fibrosis and it shortens the life expectancy of those affected.
