Kellie Maloney to undergo gender reassignment surgery

Joseph McCormick January 14, 2015

Former boxing promoter Kellie Maloney has announced that she has been given the go ahead by her doctor to have gender reassignment surgery.

Maloney, who last year took part in Celebrity Big Brother had been scheduled to undergo the surgery earlier, but was forced to put it back after she had a severe reaction to an earlier procedure.

She tweeted to say that the date had been confirmed for her to undergo the “final op”.

In other tweets, she thanked her daughter and mother for their support.

Maloney was forced to cancel her gender reassignment surgery – after she stopped breathing during a cosmetic procedure.

Maloney told the BBC in 2004 that she would not campaign in the London borough of Camden, because there were “too many gays”.

She said last month: “I accept comments I made in the past were wrong.

“If you knew Frank Maloney, if you were there when I made those remarks – you would have seen the smirk on my face.

“I knew it was wrong but I was saying it in jest.

“The UKIP councillors working for me at the time were gay – they told me it was silly, it was a mistake.”
