"I think it was brilliant," she said. "It was the first time all of us have been to a circus. Ayana really enjoyed it, she was quiet throughout and that is a really good sign."

Asked if their where any favourite performers, she added: "I don't think we had a favourite one. I liked when the ladies could change their clothes in hula hoops, that was amazing."

Ayana suffers with a complex condition that she has had from birth.

It includes hydrocephalus, epilepsy, a visual impairment and developmental delay, which has required 'multiple hospital appointments'.
