The family have been in Barcelona since August, where Isla has been receiving specialist treatment for her rare-form of cancer - neuroblastoma.

Isla was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma in March last year, and after nearly two years of chemotherapy and radiotherapy she is now finally cancer free and in remission.

This morning they tweeted “We have just received the most amazing news - we can confirm that Islas treatment has worked and she is now completely cancer free and in remission. We are completely overwhelmed and cannot thank you enough for the continuous support throughout Islas journey.”

Her mum Nicola told the Recorder: “I can’t stop crying it’s the best day of my whole life”
