Elliot Kingsley had a decent childhood. But his stepfather’s addiction and his parent’s unstable marriage were quite tricky for him and his siblings.

After marrying Thelma, Ozzy adopted Elliot. They had a good relationship with each other initially.

However, despite taking Elliot under his wing, he could not be there for him during his early years. Due to Ozzy’s addiction and absence, he lacked a father figure.

Ozzy has recently admitted that his marriage to Elliot’s mother, Thelma, was a colossal mistake.

He has spent most of his childhood with his parents and his half-siblings. Although the relationship between his parents wasn’t stable enough, his siblings were good company to him.

Elliot’s love for theatrics was quite evident in his early years. He worked as a drama teacher in multiple schools in Wirral and Chester.
