Kelle Bryan can't touch her children because of lupus

BANG Showbiz

KELLE Bryan's life-threatening lupus means she is unable to "touch" her children.

The former Eternal singer has revealed the heart-breaking news that she can't hug or come into physical contact with her son Regan and daughter Kayori Rose Gudgeon - whom she has with her husband Jay Gudgeon - without wearing protective gloves because her condition is so severe.

Breaking down in tears on UK TV show 'Loose Women' on Monday (07.11.16), Kelle shared: "Sometimes I can't touch them at all."

The 41-year-old star hit her worst this summer when she almost lost her life after contracting a virus from her daughter, which saw her organs collapse, however, after spending half the year having chemotherapy she is doing well and she was recently relieved to find lupus wasn't affecting her brain.

She said: "I am doing much better, I have just had a brain scan and the lupus is not on my brain and I have another bout of chemotherapy in six months times."

Since being diagnosed in 2000, Kelle is sometimes unable to do simple things such as open her purse among other things because lupus made her unable to move her fingers and she has also developed a stutter.

She explained: "I woke up one morning and I couldn't move my finger.

"I do my shopping and I can't always open my purse. The challenges are vast and people can't understand."

When Kelle found out she had the chronic inflammatory disease, she had just been dropped by from Eternal via email and was going through her parents' divorce and all of that contributed to her ill health.

She added: "Lupus is stress related, It was a combination of things in my life."
