STARSTRUCK Birkenshaw girl Amelia McGowan is still on cloud nine after meeting her boy band heroes One Direction.

Amelia, 11, who has cystic fibrosis, travelled to London last week to meet the band, after having her wish granted by the children’s charity Rays of Sunshine.

After spending the night at the Millennium Hotel in Mayfair, Amelia, younger sister Evie, and parents Marissa and Jason, were taken to meet the boys. Dressed in her new outfit, courtesy of the charity, Amelia was introduced to each member of the band getting autographs, photos and lots of hugs!

And the fun did not stop there as the family was then whisked away in a limousine for lunch at The Rainforest Café.

Marissa said: “Amelia’s still on a high, it’s done her street cred no end of good!. She loves One Direction, particularly Louis. They were fantastic with both the girls. Our thanks to the Rays of Sunshine which is an amazing charity. We were made to feel really special.”
