Molly Mae and Kelsey Parker are among the celebs who paid tribute on social media to five-year-old Dillan Ramsey, who passed away peacefully on Sunday, 30 June.

His mum, Amy, had built up a following of almost 80,000 followers on Instagram documenting her son's journey with incurable cancer.

Dillan was diagnosed with leukaemia as a one-year-old and had undergone four years of treatments before sadly losing his life.

Announcing his tragic passing on Instagram, Amy, from Manchester, wrote: "Dillan passed away today at 6.15 pm, he wasn’t in pain, and was still talking & making us laugh until he took his last breath. You are not in pain anymore Dilly, my gorgeous boy."

Molly Mae was among the heartbroken celebs who had been following Dillan's journey. She commented on the post saying: "Rest in paradise Dillan. Sending you and your family love and prayers. I am so sorry."

Former TOWIE star Sam Faiers added: "So heartbroken. No words can truly comfort you both during this incredibly difficult time. My prayers and thoughts are with you. Your beautiful boy will be in our hearts forever."

Kelsey Parker also penned an emotional tribute adding: "Dilly, you are one incredible little boy. My heart breaks for you all. Amy, you are the most incredible mum. You went to the ends of the earth for Dilly, and he knows that. There was no stone unturned. He was so loved by you, and that is where he found the strength every day to fight."

Ashley Cain, who tragically lost his eight-month-old daughter Azaylia to an aggressive form of cancer, added: "This hurt to read. What a strong, brave, and beautiful boy who will be so sadly missed but so powerfully remembered.

"I send my heartfelt condolences to you and your family during this time, and I pray you are surrounded by love and strength. May you rest in eternal paradise, Dilly, where you can always watch over and shine light on those who will always love and miss you."

It comes as England footballer John Stones dedicated the Three Lions' win over Slovakia to Dillan, calling him a "special little boy."

"Tonight was for Dillan," the Manchester City defender posted on Instagram. He added: "Rest in peace, little fighter. Our thoughts are with his family during this unimaginably difficult time."

Dillan was diagnosed with cancer in 2020 during the Covid-19 lockdown after his mum noticed him limping. His family never gave up hope as he underwent years of chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant, and further treatment in the US.

But sadly, in February, mum Amy was told to 'enjoy the time' they had left with Dillan as the treatment was no longer working.

The family have now launched a GoFundMe page to raise money for his funeral after spending 'every bit of savings' on treatment.
