Ashley Cain has announced plans to launch a charity in the name of his late daughter Azaylia following her tragic death.

The 30 year old's daughter died on 24 April at eight months old, after battling an aggressive and rare form of leukaemia.

In Azaylia's last weeks, former Ex On The Beach star Ashley and his girlfriend Safiyya Vorajee, 34, set up a fundraiser in the hopes of flying their daughter to Singapore for life saving treatment.

However, the couple heartbreakingly revealed that test results showed there was no cure for the tot's illness and were advised to stay at home to give her comfort.

Now, Ashley has revealed the couple's plans for the £1.6million raised in their daughter's name, writing on the Go Fund Me page: "To all our amazing supporters, we want to send our heartfelt thank yous to everyone who donated money, made and sent gifts, commented, prayed and showered our family with love and strength during the toughest days of our lives.

"Azaylia joined the angels in heaven on Saturday 24th April after the most courageous battle with AML.

"She showed her heart, strength and determination every step of the way and we are so so proud of her.


"During her short life on earth side she brought the world together, she claimed a community – her very own pride – who made amazing things happen.

"The world lit up. The world talked about childhood cancer. The world showed its heart. And YOU helped to make all of that happen.

"The amount of money needed for Azaylia's potential treatment in Singapore was raised in just 24 hours.

"That money can sadly no longer be used to help Azaylia but we want to make sure it is used positively – and in Azaylia's name."

He continued: "After days of emotional yet careful consideration we have decided that, firstly, we would like to use some to give Azaylia a magical and deserving send off – something that we believe you would all want to be a part of.

"Secondly, we will use the remaining money to help other children through a new charity we are setting up in Azaylia's name.
