SHOCKED Ellie Fitzgerald-Payne, 18, became the envy of thousands of teenage girls when she received a voicemail from One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles.

Ellie's mum Sarah and stepdad Johnny Willburn bumped into the singer at an exclusive private members club in London and asked him to call Ellie.

The obliging star gave Ellie, who lives in Colchester, a ring - but she could not answer the phone because she was driving.

When the Philip Morant College student, called her voicemail she heard: "Hi Ellie, it’s Harry here, I’m with your dad and we’ve just had lunch together. He’s a really nice guy.”

He added: "I hope I’ll see you soon, I think we’re having coffee next week, so maybe...”
