Hundreds of celebs have sent their love to nine year old Ollie, after his father made an online appeal.

Chris Hope-Smith, from Leeds, asked if anyone famous could send his son some birthday love, as Ollie is going through a tough time at the hands of a bully.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">that everything O has, he has bigger/better/more often. O excited for his birthday but keeps being told it won&#39;t be as good as his own</p>&mdash; Christopher (@Hopenlesmyth) <a href="https://twitter.com/Hopenlesmyth/status/880317173612380160">June 29, 2017</a></blockquote>

Chris's original message has been retweeted over 12,000 times and has received over 5,800 replies since 7:45am yesterday morning. 

He's gotten birthday messages from Stormzy, Russel Crowe, astronaut Chris Hadfield, YouTube stars Zoella and Alfie Deyes as well as messages from Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Crystal Palace football clubs.
