      Re: Kelly Cates returns to Sky Sports to host live EFL

      My Dad met Kelly many years ago, probably about 30. He'd gone to the NEC in brum to pick up my sister from a Bros concert and there was Kenny waiting to pick up Kelly. Gutted I didn't go with my dad to pick her up as he got to talk to Kenny...... I did get his autograph though. I missed out on trying my best lines on Kelly (well as good as they can be for a c10yr old!!).

      Not that interesting a fact but I've still got the flyer with the autograph to this day.
