One Direction fans crash cancer patient's website after Louis Tomlinson sends 'lots of love' Tweet
Loyal Directioners rushed to find out about Vanessa Riddle - who's been suffering from neuroblastoma for three years - after the singer, 20, wrote: 'Lots of Love @vanessariddle'.
An administrator on the Vanessa's Journey Facebook page tells the Daily Record: 'They actually thought the site was under attack, such was the sudden surge of traffic.
'It also got Vanessa 5000 more Twitter followers.'
Ayrshire-born Vanessa is currently in hospital in Germany after receiving stem cell treatment which could potentially save her life.
Despite being a big 1D fan, Vanessa's dad Chris insisted she 'played it cool' when Louis sent her his cute message.
'@Louis_Tomlinson Oooooooo, thanks for my tweet, luuuuuv it <3 <3 xx#' she responded.
