Jenna Adams Biography – Jenna Adams Wiki

Jenna Adams was the sister of Jayde Adams, a comedian, actress and presenter. Jayde and Jenna competed in freestyle disco dancing together. The comedian told The Guardian: “My sister and I would be forced to compete in freestyle disco dancing together. I wasn’t terrible at it, but I was fat. Mum shoved me in skintight Lycra because she didn’t want me to feel different: she wanted to protect my self-esteem, which I had a lot of.

“My sister, however – slim, athletic, the perfect disco dancer – didn’t have much confidence. So we weren’t that successful, apart from this one time. We danced in these costumes and did so well a tunnel of people were waiting for us when we finished, applauding and going: “Oh my God! You’re amazing!””

She added: “Jenna was two years older, really popular, and pulled me out of a lot of bad situations. We were a bit like Phil and Grant. One time, a lad at school smacked me in the stomach with a hockey stick. My sister found out, came charging through the corridors and beat seven bells out of him. She used to fight all my battles – so much so that when she died, I didn’t know who or what I was.”

Jenna Adams Death

Jenna Adams died in 2011 at the age of 29.

In 2005, Jenna had a grand mal seizure out of the blue. When Jenna had a biopsy they took out 52% of the brain tumour.

Jayde said: “It was a major trauma, so she was different afterwards: she used to repeat herself and do things like put her phone in the fridge. A lot of people in her life couldn’t handle the shift and took a step away. Jenna was quite lonely when she died. The last conversation I had with her, she was crying about one of her mates not telling her that she’d got engaged.

“She ended up living for six more years – she got married, which was important. She didn’t do loads in her life so she got to have that special day; we had the ceremony in the same church we had her funeral in.”
