This is ah-mazing. ๐Ÿ’•

Celebrities including Stormzy, Russell Crowe, Dawn French and Jason Manford have stepped up to wish a bullied nine-year-old boy a happy birthday.

The boyโ€™s dad tweeted on Thursday 29 June to appeal to celebs and well-known people to send his son, Ollie, a positive birthday message.

Christopher (@Hopenlesmyth) said a bully keeps putting his son down and telling him his birthday wouldnโ€™t be good.

โ€œI would love someone to tell [my son] he does mean something and bullying is not okay,โ€ the dad tweeted.

Within a couple of hours, the dadโ€™s initial tweet was retweeted more than 5,000 times. Within 24 hours it had more than 10,000 retweets.

Celebrities, well-known people, sportspeople, actors and actresses, comedians, TV presenters and vlogging stars sent touching words to Ollie.

Here are just a few of the celebrities who have taken part.

Ollieโ€™s mum later went on her husbandโ€™s Twitter account to thank everyone for their wishes.

Isnโ€™t Twitter amazing, sometimes.
