Kellie Maloney: ‘When I was 18 I lived as a girl for two years’

Joseph McCormick August 23, 2014

Openly trans boxing promoter Kellie Maloney has spoken out about living as a woman, and said she first did so over 40 years ago, when she was 18.

The former UKIP candidate and manager of Lennox Lewis, Maloney entered the Celebrity Big Brother house earlier this week.

She revealed last Sunday that she is transgender, and has begun to transition.

The 61-year-old told housemates Edele Lynch and Frenchy Morgan that she lived as a woman for two years when she was 18.

“When I was 18, I lived as a girl for two years,” she said, but admitted that when she did so, living in North London, her family knew nothing about it.

Of her transition, she said: “I’ve got to have my boobs done… I’ve got a little bit more work to do on my face… Then there will be no stopping me!” she laughed.

Maloney attracted criticism earlier this week when she said: “I’m not homophobic, I have gay friends… I still don’t think that children should be brought up in same-sex marriages.”
