Emma is doing the jump in memory of a little girl called Isabelle who sadly lost her brave fight against cancer of the kidneys earlier this year. Isabelle's father is a friend of the family and he too will be doing the jump alongside Emma.

In an Instagram post, which was written alongside a picture of the little girl, Emma said: "I can now announce that i will be doing a sponsored skydive to raise money for Cancer Research UK Children and Teens.

"This beautiful little girl had a brave battle with a stage 4 Wilms Tumour before heaven needed another angel on the 18th May this year.

"Her dad - a close family friend, will be doing the jump with me. Anything you can afford to donate is so appreciated and will help no matter how small. No child should face this horrible disease so help me to raise an amazing amount to go towards the prevention and cure research that this outstanding charity do.

"Donate through the link on my twitter account @emmajwoodhams to my donations page. I am funding the jumps so every penny will go to the charity."

Fans who wish to donate can do so through Emma's Just Giving Page here. Emma, who is dating her Love Island co-star Terry Walsh, has set herself a target of £5,000.

Good luck!
