Since exploding on to our screens as part of the MTV show The Valleys, Lateysha Grace has caused quite a stir with her kick-offs, cat-fights and confident behaviour. But before all the glamour, Lateysha had a bleak childhood; born into a single parent family where her mother Debbie struggled to make ends meet, plunging the family into the depths of abject poverty. All Lateysha craved was a normal family life and when her mum met a new man, she was happy to finally have a father figure. Her dream soon turned into her worst nightmare though when her new dad became addicted to heroin. Lateysha could do nothing but watch as he physically abused her, her mother and her siblings. Lateysha's story is shocking, upsetting and often heart-breaking and she holds no bars when it comes to speaking about her turbulent childhood, wild behaviour and emotional despair.
