    Kirby was born in Il­ford, London, the el­dest of three chil­dren of Irish par­ents. Her mother Eileen brought them up alone after their fa­ther left early in their childhood. Kirby grew up on Tomswood Hill, Bark­ing­side, in Il­ford, and at­tended the Ur­su­line Con­vent School in Il­ford where she sang in the choir.

    Kirby's vocal tal­ent be­came ap­par­ent early in life, and she took singing lessons with a view to be­com­ing an opera singer. She be­came a pro­fes­sional singer after meet­ing band­leader Bert Am­broseat the Il­ford Palais in 1956. She re­mained with Am­brose's band for three years and he re­mained her man­ager, men­tor and lover until his death on stage in Leeds in 1971. Dur­ing the sum­mer of 1957 Kirby per­formed at the Florida Park Restau­rant in Madrid, and after re­turn­ing to the UK not only per­formed with Am­brose's or­ches­tra, but also with Nat Allen and his band. In 1959 Kirby joined vo­cal­ists Tony Mansell and Rikki Hen­der­son in the Denny Boyce Band, and ap­peared reg­u­larly at the Lyceum Ball­room in London. In the sum­mer of 1959 she made her solo cabaret debut at the Astor Club, and was sub­se­quently signed to Pye Records in 1960 where she re­leased two sin­gles, "Love Can Be" and "Now You're Cry­ing", which sold few copies but helped her get a six-month con­...

    She did not per­form in pub­lic after her re­tire­ment, but an am­a­teur record­ing of Kirby singing the song "He", made in about 2005, is avail­able on­line.

In her last decade, she recorded short greet­ings for her of­fi­cial website. A bi­og­ra­phy was pub­lished in 2005, and there was a 2008 stage show about her life, writ­ten and pro­duced by Gra­ham Smith, called Se­cret Love. Smith re-wrote the show for the 2012 Ha­worth Fes­ti­val, en­ti­tling it: Dance On: The Kathy Kirby Story. The Daily Ex­press re­ported in 2008 that plans for a new filmed in­ter­view had been aban­doned, but later re­ports con­firmed that the in­ter­view had been filmed, and it was sub­se­quently in­cluded on a DVD com­pi­la­tion re­leased the fol­low­ing year. She also gave an in­ter­view to the Ex­pressin 2009, which in­cluded re­cent pho­tographs and w...

    Kirby met band­leader Bert Am­brose in her teens and, de­spite his being 42 years older and hav­ing an es­tranged wife at the time, began a re­la­tion­ship with him that lasted until his death in 1971. In the 2009 in­ter­view, she said she had had an af­fair with Bruce Forsythdur­ing this time. Kirby was mar­ried briefly to writer and for­mer Lon­don po­lice­man Fred­er­ick Pye in the 1970s. Fol­low­ing her bank­ruptcy in 1975 and a court case fol­low­ing an ar­rest over an un­paid hotel bill, she was re­ferred to St Luke's psy­chi­atric hos­pi­tal in Lon­don in 1979. Fol­low­ing her dis­charge, she lived with a fe­male fan, Laraine McKay, and said that they in­tended to marry. McKay was im­pris­oned for fraud and forgery. In the early 1980s Kirby had re­la­tion­ships with mu­si­cian David Crossand lawyer Alan Porter.
