Kelli started her training with Fiona at The Hughes School of Dance and Drama. She joined Tiptoe and trained there until she successfully auditioned for Italia Conti with a full scholarship at the age of sixteen. While there she joined the original pop talent show ‘Pop Stars’ and became a member of Liberty X the runners up to Hearsay. Liberty X had a number 1 single and won a Brit Award. Kelli has worked extensively since then but is still proud of her Derby roots.
