Ashley Cain has been left in tears after completing the epic 1,040 miles bike ride from the bottom of England to top of Scotland to raise money for The Azaylia Foundation.

The 30 year old and his partner Safiyya Vorajee, 33, were left heartbroken when their daughter Azaylia tragically passed away at just eight months old earlier this year.

In honour of her and in a bid to save the lives of thousands of children, the couple started The Azaylia Foundation, which launched on 31 August.

To kickstart the charity, Ashley and his brother Matty embarked on the gruelling bike ride to "raise awareness and funds for all the incredible children fighting childhood cancer."

After days of endless biking, the siblings finally reached the finish line at the John O'Groats signpost on Tuesday 14 September.

Taking to his Instagram stories, Ashley celebrated the incredible moment with his 1.8million followers as he told them with tears in his eyes: "John O'Groats, we made it. A thousand plus miles, incredible."

The Ex On The Beach star went on to promise an update on Wednesday before explaining he was going to sit down and enjoy a whiskey to "reflect on the amazing journey that I embarked on with Azaylia, with my family, friends, and amazing people who helped along the way".

Shouting to the sky, he added: "We made it, baby! We made it! Let's go champ!"

He later re-shared a clip from his foundation, which showed himself pushing his bike past the end point up a hill, where tears could be seen again as his nearest and dearest cheered him on.

Ashley, who made a moving speech on his daughter's first birthday, previously spoke out about how his daughter was sent home three times by doctors before she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia.

The reality star recalled having to see his baby daughter being treated with adult drugs and how he hopes to fund research for an alternative treatment for kids.

He told The Sun: "I was told I could not change my daughter’s nappy without gloves on, because the chemo can come out in her urine and waste.

"If I can’t have that diluted version touch me, how can an eight week old baby have it pumped into her body through her veins, put into her organs? It is absolutely crazy."

The couple also wish to financially support families who are going through the treatment process with the £1.5million raised for their daughter.

Ashley explained: "We want to be able to provide support for these children and their families. We know others won’t be as fortunate in their networks as we are, and these children need financial support.

"We haven’t taken a penny of this money personally. We will use it instead to help others less fortunate and their children."
