Celebrities and their singlehood frequently become a hot gossip topic. Similarly, the secretive relationship status and sexual orientation of Kelly Holmes have been a topic of discussion. So, today we will be going through the insights of Kelly Holmes' personal life.

Holmes Splits With Partner

It was one of Holmes's biggest days when she grabbed the gold medal in the 2004 Summer Olympics at Athens, Greece. Her performance had given a huge lift to the British team. And Holmes was the country's new hero.

While Holmes was on cloud nine, her long-time training partner Maria Mutola wasn't feeling the same. She didn't even go to congratulate her.

The defending champion, Mutola, who finished fourth in the 800m race, accused Holmes of seizing on her vulnerability to land the Summer Olympic title. 

Mutola had been suffering from a hamstring injury, and just before a month of the Olympics, her participation was in doubt. Holmes, on the other side, confirmed her participation in Athens two weeks ago. It was then Mutola complained that Holmes was well-aware of her weakness and her vulnerability.  

After the competition ended, it was reported that the partners had stopped training together. Well, it was not revealed why they took the decision, but it sensed like their friendship broke up.  

Is Kelly Holmes Married?

This is a question that has been humming around Holmes for a long time now. But she hasn't really opened up about the matter publicly.  

However, one time she tweeted about having a husband. The news was a bolt from the blue for the fans. 

Although surprising, it seems to be just a random tweet; nothing much to be serious about as there is no one in her life who can be called her husband. 

And now, at the age of 50, she feels she is too old to have kids and is happy that she doesn't have to take upon the responsibility. Well, this hints that she is also not desperate to have a partner in her life. 

Is She Gay/Lesbian?

Well, an absence of a partner and married life might be the reason Holmes is speculated to be gay/Lesbian. However, for the truth, she is straight. 

But there has been a couple of instances where she has been tangled in lesbian talks on Twitter.

As of the latest, Holmes got targeted by trans activists after she objected to transitioned athletes competing in women's sports. She supports a campaign that insists male sex advantage shouldn't be competing in women's events. 

Holmes Fight Against Covid

Talking to Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain, she opened up about her sturdy battle against the virus. 

It took 8-10 weeks for the double Olympic champion to fully recover since she was contracted in November 2020. 

A sore throat, aching body, tight chest, minor cough, loss of taste and smell were the symptoms. 

Now, she is totally fit and is set to star on the Great Celebrity Bake Off to honor her late mother Pam, who died of blood cancer in 2017.
