Evie McClean’s infectious smile has left the rich and famous queuing up to wish her a happy tenth birthday – including X Factor winner Louisa Johnson.

The adorable schoolgirl has been battling leukaemia as well as a blood disorder myelodysplasia and although she hoped to be at home for Christmas and her birthday yesterday (Tues) she’s sadly been readmitted. Dedicated mum Nicola, 36, put out a plea to her daughters favourite celebrities to help cheer up her fighter daughter – and her request quickly went viral. The youngster, from South Godstone, Surrey, has had messages from JJ Hamblett of Union J who told her his band love her, TV presenter Nick Knowles and The Stereophonics.
