Safiyya said her life is feeling purposeless without her daughter, though she is looking forward to helping people with a charity set up in her name.

Speaking from the grave of Azaylia, the brave mum said: “I’m going to stand here and sing her songs to her. Doobie do, I want to be like you-oo-oo.

“What else do we sing to you Azaylia? If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands. She’s so precious. I love her so, so much. My heart aches all the time when I leave from here.”

She also explained how she’s been feeling, saying: “Here I am another day existing. That’s what I kind of call it at the moment. I feel like I’m just existing in the world.

“I don’t really feel like I’ve got much purpose at the moment. I’ve just got presence here in Earth.

“But I’ve got myself to the gym, popped into town, and I’ve just come down to my little baby. Can’t find peace in my day and can’t relax until I’m here with her.

“Even if I’m just sitting here. Just… don’t really know at the moment. Don’t know why I did a Story, haven’t got a lot to say. Feeling very, very non. I miss my little girl.

“I feel like when Azaylia’s charity is ready and up and running, I feel like my purpose will come back. Being able to help all those children and all those families suffering the same way we did.

“It will be so amazing to try and help and create so much awareness – a lot more than we’ve already done. Keeping Azaylia’s name alive and keeping the charity going is just going to be such an incredible thing to help. I actually can’t wait to help and give back.

“The love and support we’ve had on this journey has been amazing. To be able to give that back, is going to feel incredible.

“I’m so, so proud of Azaylia for all of this that she’s created. She’s brought so many people together, she’s spread so much awareness, and she’s done it so gracefully and beautifully. She’s so precious.”

Ashley and Safiyya managed to raise £1.6million through donations from generous fans in order to pay for treatment for her leukaemia.
