Kelly Schembri (born 13 November 1986) is a model, singer, actor and dancer from Leytonstone, East London. She is known on the International modeling circuit as Kelly Stelfox.
Kelly has a mixed heritage – her father is Maltese and her mother is English. At the age of 4 she moved to Malta with her family. She spent her childhood and teenage years growing up on the island and this is where her love for dance started.
At the age of 16 she entered a Maltese reality television talent contest called Bravi. Kelly topped the public vote on the show resulting in her winning a scholarship to a performing arts college in the UK.
In 2007, Kelly was discovered by a London-based photographer and has been working as a successful commercial and photographic model ever since. She is now one of the UK's top commercial, beauty, lingerie and swimwear models.
Kelly trained in acting at ??? in the UK, and was awarded a Diploma in Performing Arts in 2007, at the end of a three-year course she followed on the scholarship from Bravi. Kelly trained in dance at The Alison White Dance Studios in Malta since the age of 4 and continued her dance studies in the UK in her late teenage years, training in ballet, modern, tap, jazz, Spanish, contemporary, street jazz, hip-hop, freestyle and podium.
Kelly has performed in various musical theatre productions, music videos, television commercials, the channel Five television series Hanrahan Investigates (playing the part of Simone Bellante) and The Hot House (played the character of Bella Young). Since 2007, she is also one of the UCMMA's main dancers.
In 2010 Kelly became a member of the UK-based girl group Monroe. The group is currently (early 2011) recording their first album and preparing to launch a series of shows and appearances across Europe in the coming months.
In January 2011, Kelly Schembri was announced as a participant in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2011, singing a song by Sven Lundho and Erik Rydmark, with lyrics by Gerard James Borg called Love Me Like You Love Your Money. This song was also featured on the 243rd Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast as one of Toni Sant's top five picks from Malta's national Eurovision selection for 2011.
