Tich ''collapsed'' when she received a tweet from Harry Styles.

The 20-year-old singer was so shocked when she got a message of support from the One Direction heartthrob ahead of the release of her debut single, 'Dumb', she fell to the floor in disbelief.

She said: ''When Harry Styles tweeted ... I'm not going to lie, I slightly collapsed. I just couldn't believe it!!! I had to check it a million times just to make sure it was real!''

Tich has already supported Olly Murs on tour during her fledgling career, but she is left crippled with nerves before a gig and feels like she wants to vomit.

The brunette singer - whose UK tour kicks off this December - explained: ''My routine is normally shaking, wanting to be sick. I get really nervous before any gig, even if it's one person and their dog.''

But once on stage the talented popstar is in her element and enjoys entertaining the crowd.

She added: ''I just love being on stage and signing songs that mean a lot to me and hopefully mean a lot to other people.''
