How old is Shelley and what does she do?
Shelley was born in May 1985, making her 37 years old.
When she’s not running Boxx2Boxx and serving espresso with her partner, Jill, Shelly works as a community health officer.
The couple are set to open their cafe in 2021 and it apparently currently features a ‘Vote Jill’ memo as well as a permanent portrait of the England star.

The Northenden coffee shop was named after Jill’s infamous role as a box-to-box midfielder during his career for club and country, states the website.
Shelley’s bio on the website also reads: ‘Hey I’m the co-owner of Boxx2box coffee shop, if you’re ever looking for me you’ll find me here because that’s where I spend most of the day.
‘A flat white is my go to drink. I love to play board games and clean when I have time! I love getting out and going on walks with a good cup of coffee!’
Where did Jill and Shelly meet?
Shelley’s sister is her former England team-mate Rachael Unitt of Jill, so it is likely that the couple met when the supporting siblings were coming to cheer her sister on at games.
In October 2021, Shelley shared a photo of them celebrating their fourth anniversary together, so they’ve been together for five years now.
Sharing a post with the hashtag #4years on October 17, he wrote, ‘It went by too fast…but thank you for the best weekend ever! #4years #bad #loveyou.’

Jill announced her engagement by uploading a photo of herself holding a cup of coffee in her hand while wearing her dazzling engagement ring.
Tagging his fiancee, the former footballer wrote, “Best coffee ever.”

Do they have any children?
While they don’t have any children together, Shelley has two teenage daughters, Evie, 19, and Hattie, 15, from a previous relationship.
Shelly’s daughters stay at home with Shelly and Jill, and the two children’s mother-in-law admits she has missed Jill since she went into the woods.
Shelley told The Sun: ‘They are missing the jump around him. He is very proud of Jill and he is really excited.

She said, ‘I didn’t want to leave him at first but he said ‘go, go’ – it’s obviously very different to watching him play football because it’s just for an hour but we’re all rooting for him Huh.’
Shelly also mentions the girls Jill met in the woods in her emotional letter.
The note read: Hi Jill this is Shelly, I love you and miss you so much. There is not a minute when you are not on my mind.
‘I love you so much and now the rest of the world does too. It is because you are such a great person with your positive, kind and encouraging self. I’ve got a flat white waiting for you, love your biggest fans, Shelley, Evie and Hattie.’
