Jack P Shepherd’s lovechild, seven, is to be treated with cannabis oil amid his battle with crippling pain due to a rare genetic disorder.

Little Greyson Milewski has the neurological condition, Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood (AHC), which causes temporary paralysis on one side of his body.

His mother, Jack’s former fling Sammy Milewski, has revealed she hopes to use the medical oil to help ease the pain of Greyson’s paralysing attacks, which have been getting worse and now occur every day.

Sammy, 32 – who had a one-night stand with Jack in 2010 – can use the drug after a change in UK law makes it available through specialist doctors and hopes it will change Greyson’s life.

‘I have been fighting for two years for Greyson to be prescribed cannabis oil and doctors assure me they will give it the go-ahead by the end of November,’ she told The Mirror.

‘If you saw what Greyson goes through on a daily basis, it’s heartbreaking. I don’t want to have to keep him cooped up, it’s really sad for him,’ she added. 

‘I just want him to lead the happy life he deserves.’

It is understood that Jack, 29, does not have a parental relationship with Greyson other than to pay maintenance, according to The Sun.  

Jack – who plays David Platt in Corrie – has two other children Nyla, six, and two-year-old Reuben with fiancee Lauren Shippey.

Sammy has previously revealed the daily plight of the actor’s forgotten disabled son, whose condition is so severe it has left him wanting to bite his own arm off. 

Last year, Sammy shared pictures of her little boy, captioned: ‘Hate seeing my lil dude poorly,just stopped him biting an pulling his arm saying mummy arm t go. Another arm mummy. #heartbreaking #AHC’

Greyson was diagnosed with AHC at the age of two. It is a rare condition thought to be limited to just 40 people in the UK.

As part of the condition, paralysis in one or alternating sides of the body can last from minutes to days but it can also cause sudden attacks of uncontrollable muscle activity.

From a cognitive perspective, children suffering from AHC can be left with developmental delay or intellectual disability. 

Although Jack has never commented on his son publicly, he is known to support children’s charity Young Epilepsy.

A DNA test confirmed that Jack was the father of Samatha’s son Greyson not long after the birth in 2011, but Jack was unaware of his son’s disability for the first two years of his life.
