Elizabeth, who lost most of her fingers and part of her nose and an ear during the event, sweetly replied: ‘People who are mean to you don’t understand that you are better than them on the inside than them.’

‘It doesn’t matter what you look like, it just matters that you’re kind.’

Years after the tragic fire took place, which was set off by a faulty air conditioner at their home in Qatar, Elizabeth raised thousands for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

Elizabeth’s father Liam, said: ‘Her mum went inside and the room was on fire. The cot was on fire. Elizabeth was on fire.’

Elizabeth’s mum added: ‘She’s amazing, she wows us every day and the fact she wants to help others is just so her. This award means the world to her – and us.’
