Boyband One Direction have recorded a video birthday message for a little boy from Hull battling an aggressive form of childhood cancer.
Charlie Hook, of west Hull, turns 6 today – exactly one year since he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma.
Now, all five members of One Direction, who found fame on the X Factor, have wished the youngster a happy birthday.
In the recording, Harry Styles says: „Hi Charlie, we are One Direction and we want to say a massive happy birthday.
„Have a great day. Bye.”
The message was the idea of Andy Newton-Lee, who is originally from east Hull and now runs a celebrity relocation business in Hollywood, London and Australia.
The former Hollyoaks star beat skin cancer in 2005 and has recently donated £1,700 to the £300,000 Charlie Hook Appeal, which has been launched to take Charlie for treatment abroad if he relapses.
Andy, 30, said: „I am hoping we can raise the profile of the appeal by maybe bringing in some celebrities to support it.„
