Iqbal, who works in a boxing gym, spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and address.

He was remanded into custody to appear at Minshull Street Crown Court on June 19.

Ms Hough’s best friend Debbie Wright has set up a fundraising page to try and help her family cope with ‘the most traumatic incident they have been through’.

She wrote on the page: ‘Life can be turned upside down in the blink of an eye.

‘Frankie who is currently 18 weeks pregnant is in intensive care fighting for her life. Her partner Calvin, is frantically by her side.

‘Tommy and Tobias are in induced comas in intensive care currently awaiting brain scan updates. 

‘This is absolutely devastating for the family and their whole world has been truly turned upside down.

‘These next few weeks/months will be critical for the family and is absolutely traumatising for them all.’

Ms Wright says family members of all four are by the side of their loved ones in hospital including Tobias’s parents Becci and Aaron, Tommy’s father, and Ms Hough’s parents Julia and Frank.
