Sally Phillips and Jenny Seagrove paid tribute to their Off The Rails co-star Kelly Preston at the London premiere on Thursday after she died from cancer last year.

Kelly, who was the wife of actor John Travolta, 67, died at the age of 57 following a two-year battle with breast cancer.

Taking to the red carpet ahead of the 23 July release of Off The Rails, Sally, 51, and Jenny, 64, wore brightly coloured ‘Kelly’ gold chain necklaces.

Sally could be seen with the name in pink hanging on a gold chain while Jenny wore it in blue to match her attire.

Comedy actress Sally spoke of ‘vibrant and beautiful’ Kelly during an appearance on Loose Women on Thursday.

The pair grew close while filming the movie together in Spain while Kelly was ill, something she hid from cast and crew, including Sally.

She said on the ITV show: ‘That’s what people do – they go through it on their own because of worries about insurance for the film, and working again afterwards.

‘We’ve had a couple of high profile examples of that recently, haven’t we? Chadwick [Boseman] and Helen McCrory didn’t tell anyone.

‘She was so bloomin’ beautiful. And so vibrant and you would never have known. She was so professional.’

Battlefield Earth actress Kelly died in July last year after secretly battling breast cancer.

Husband John, who was married to Kelly for 28 years, confirmed the sad news on Instagram at the time, writing: ‘It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer.

‘She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many. My family and I will forever be grateful to her doctors and nurses at MD Anderson Cancer Center, all the medical centers that have helped, as well as her many friends and loved ones who have been by her side.’
