Baby Azaylia was diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia when she was just eight-weeks old.

The Ex on the Beach star and his partner Safiyya Vorajee initially began fundraising to fly Azaylia to Singapore for life-saving treatment, raising over £1.5 million.

Despite the devastating news, the pair are taking each day at a time and enjoying every moment with their precious daughter.

Ashley has praised his little girl for her bravery and has said that he has a "crazy belief that she will still be with us next week".

He said: “Even though she doesn’t have much energy, she loved to see her surroundings today and had the loveliest little play time. We even got a smile which was worth more than anything money can buy.

“As a parent it’s the hardest thing in the world to see your child like this, at home with the painful inevitable fair pending.

“For some insane reason though, I still have some crazy belief that she will still be with us next week, the week after that and the week after that.

“But we aren’t counting the days right now, we’re just doing our best to make those days count.”
