Gordon Ramsay's daughter Megan has completed the London Marathon in memory of her baby brother Rocky. Her mum Tana sadly lost her baby in June 2016, when she was five months pregnant with her and Gordon's fifth child. Megan has been fundraising in honour of the baby boy and on her Just Giving page, she wrote: "Last year I sadly lost my little brother Rocky while my mum was 5 months pregnant, and I miss him every day and I am running in loving memory of him."

The teenager ran the 26.3 mile race for Great Ormond Street, a charity that she describes as being "very close to mine and my family's heart". A few weeks ago she also told her Instagram followers: "This April I am going to be running the London Marathon with Great Ormond Street Hospital which is a charity I love working with. I would be very grateful if you could take a minute out of your day to donate to a good cause, the link is in my bio! Every donation will help change someone's life. This is for you Rocky, love and miss you everyday."

Megan has surpassed her £2,000 target, raising almost £5,500 on Monday. Some of her biggest support came from her parents Gordon and Tana, who donated £1,000 to her page, writing: "So proud of you, a very impressive 18 year old. All our love Mummy & Daddy xxxxxxx." Megan's twin siblings Holly and Jack, 17, also donated £50 each, with Jack writing, "So so proud of you Meggie, love you lots xx" and signing off as "Your annoying little brother".

"@greatormondst 💜 thank you a million times to all my family and friends for being there every step of the way - can't believe I have done a marathon!" During an appearance on This Morning on Monday, her younger sister Tilly, who was promoting her new cookbook, said of Megan: "She's very tired this morning. But is up walking and did really well."
