Robyn Betteridge Has Supportive Parents, Colin And Kristy Betteridge

Robyn Betteridge’s parents, Colin and Kristy Betteridge, aren’t part of the entertainment industry. But they were supportive of Robyn’s career from the get-go.

As soon as they discovered their daughter’s contortion talent, Colin and Kristy tried their best to make their daughter better at it instead of making her stop doing it. Many parents fear their children might end up injuring themselves and do not let them pursue contortion, but that wasn’t the case in the Betteridge household.

They took the correct step and got the best trainer possible for their daughter to enhance her contortion skills. Colin worked with Game Retail as a Regional Manager and later as a Project Manager in 2008.

After quitting his job at Game Retail in 2010, Colin started his own business, CKB Ltd. CKB is an entrepreneurial family-run multi-channel e-commerce business trading globally on Amazon, Tesco, & eBay.

The company started as their home and is now operating in Herts and has a 5500sq ft warehouse. In 2018, Colin established another business venture, Gifts Tomorrow, a wholesale company part of CKB Ltd. Lanyards, Snug Rug, and Bar Amigos are the other companies part of CKB Ltd.

Colin is available on Instagram and has shared a few family posts. In 2020, Colin and Kristy celebrated their 20th anniversary, with Colin sharing a gallery of images, including the day they became Mr. and Mrs. Betteridge.

Kristy graduated with a business degree from the University of Hertfordshire and worked as a General Manager at Nestor Healthcare Group until 2005.

From 2011 until 2016, Kristy worked at SJB Medical, attaining various positions, including Executive Consultant and Programme Director. After leaving her job at SJB Medical, Kristy works as a Company secretary and Director of Business Assurance at CKB Ltd.

A Bedfordshire native, Robyn started traveling to London most weeks to train for 1-2 hours with her coach, Pixie Le Knot. When an interviewer asked Robyn if it was dangerous to be a contortionist, she said, “Being naturally flexible and young with proper training, no, it is not.

Medical surveys show that contortionists and yogis not only have great resistance to everyday complaints, pain, and disease, but their general health is excellent, and they tend to live considerably longer than people in any other profession.”

Robyn’s first modeling job came with Luna Magazine, and she has previously worked with Next, Loud Apparel, Fatface, Holigans, and Hazzys & Flakiki. On her Instagram handle, Robyn has shared several photos of her modeling for various companies, including Nike last year.

Though the show might have aired only in 2021, Robyn had been cast for the show back in 2019. She had traveled to Prague to film her role. While speaking to the Chronicle, Robyn said, “I was given a script to record myself reading, and then I got a recall, and then another recall with the director, which was exciting.”

In her interview, Robyn recalled how fun it was to spend those two days on the set and also talked about her shopping spree at the Christmas stalls. Robyn also received her own trailer with her name on the front, a dream come true for the little one.
