Both James and Isla are West Ham fans, and the club has supported Isla's fight, as she was mascot for the clubs game at the London Stadium against Bournemouth last season.

Actor and TV host James Corden has pledged his support to a three-year-old girl from Hornchurch who is going to America for treatment costing £250,000 for her rare cancer.

The Gavin and Stacey actor took to Twitter and said: “If anyone can find a way to donate to @islasfight it would be much appreciated. More to come on this. But all donations richly received. x”

Isla Caton was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma in March last year and now her and her mum, Nicola Caton, will be going to New York so she can receive injections of antibodies that will raise her chances of survival from 20 per cent to 70 pc.

Just 100 children in the UK are diagnosed with Neuroblastoma every year and immunotherapy – which involves the injection of an antibody therapy – is not currently available in this country.

Both James and Isla are West Ham fans, and the club has supported Isla’s fight, as she was mascot for the clubs game at the London Stadium against Bournemouth last season.

Brave Isla has been undergoing treatment for over a year, but suffered a relapse in February which meant that she had to start all over again.

Her parents were told by doctors that scans had shown a spot of the aggressive cancer was still on Isla’s skull.

She will now head to American for four injections that will cost £250,000 and will be spread out over three months.
