Safiyya took to her Instagram Stories to discuss the "good days and bad days" explaining she was having a particularly difficult moment after looking back on memories.

Ashley and Safiyya announced they had split last month, almost a year on from the heartbreaking death of their daughter, Azaylia.

Azaylia Diamond Cain captured the hearts of the nation after battling a rare form of blood cancer, which she was diagnosed with at just eight weeks old. Sadly, she passed away in April last year.

Ashley announced their split on his Instagram Stories last month, explaining it was an "incredibly tough" decision, but added that the pair will always be "bonded".

He wrote: "After a devastating and heartbreaking year, Safiyya and I decided to separate a few months ago.

"This was an incredibly tough decision which we needed to keep to ourselves for some time to give us the opportunity to figure out our own journey privately.

"The past few months have demonstrated that we remain the closest of friends, spending time together everyday, and that we will love, care and support each other forever.

"We are bonded by our powerful journey together, by the eternal love we have for our daughter, and our passionate commitment to her foundation."

Following the split, Safiyya took to Instagram to thank followers for their messages of support.

"I just want to say thank you to all the beautiful messages as well that I’ve received," she said.

"So kind and so thoughtful. So heartwarming. So thank you for them."

Azaylia suffered from a rare form of leukaemia which she was diagnosed with at just eight weeks old.

Ashley and Safiyya had hoped to take their daughter to Singapore to undergo lifesaving CAR T-cell therapy for her cancer, even fundraising over £1.5 million for the trip.

But they were later told by the facility that the treatment was no longer an option, because the blood cancer was so rare.

Ashley and Safiyya since set up the Azaylia Cain foundation, which launched on 31st August last year.

Our thoughts remain with Safiyya and Ashley.
