A REALITY TV star is the latest to join the fight to save a six-year-old from a rare brain tumour.

The Only Way Is Essex star James ‘Arg’ Argent is lending his support to fellow Woodford Green resident Scott Lau’s campaign, which could save his daughter from an inoperable brain tumour called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).

Mr Lau has been fighting to fund more research into his daughter Kaleigh’s condition with a government petition since June.

But after it reached the first milestone of 10,000 signatures, the 40-year-old father-of-two started a fresh campaign to make sure it reaches the 100,000 needed for it to be debated in Parliament.

Mr Lau and his wife Yang organised for seven ‘Kaleigh bears’ to travel around the country, stopping off with various famous faces along the way.

The seven bears, one for each letter of Kaleigh’s name, have now been pictured with the likes of Olympic legend Mo Farah, news anchor Huw Edwards, singer Olly Murs, and Mr Lau’s MP Wes Streeting.

In his video with a Kaleigh bear, TOWIE star Arg said: “This is for little Kaleigh, who is from Woodford Green, my home town.

“She suffers with DIPG, which is a serious brain tumour.

“We are getting this petition done, where we hope everyone will sign it, to make sure the Government looks into it with more research and more funding.

“Lots of love from myself and everyone in Essex.”

Mr Lau said he hopes Arg’s fellow TOWIE cast members decide to get behind his family’s campaign.

He added: “We are just grateful Arg, in his hectic schedule, has made time to record such a heartfelt and sincere video message for Kaleigh and to raise awareness of DIPG.

“Please continue to sign the petition as we are way short and only have around a month to go to get this debated in Parliament.

“In the meantime I will continue to try to find a treatment that will prolong Kaleigh’s life.”

After the petition reached 10,000 signatures the Government set up a new working group to try to increase research into brain tumours and ensure better outcomes for their families.
