The singer has plenty of celebrity friends

Justin Bieber turned 18 yesterday and received some special birthday messages from his British celebrity friends.

Cheryl Cole, The Wanted and One Direction‘s Liam Payne and Niall Horan all took to Twitter to send their best wishes to the teen heartthrob.

‘Happy Birthday @justinbieber ! I hope you have an Amazing 18th that you never forget.. *kisses*,’ Tweeted Cheryl, 28.

1D singer Niall, 18, wrote: ‘happy birthday dude, hope ya had a good one !’

And Liam, 18, spoke for the rest of the band when he said: ‘happy birthday from all of 1D.’

The Wanted linked to a PopCrush interview with youngest member Nathan Sykes, 18, to give some special advice to Justin, who is still too young to drink in the US. 

‘As much as we all know how much he loves America, and everybody knows how much we love America, on his 18th birthday he can’t be in America,’ said Nathan.

‘[On your 18th birthday], it’s traditional in the UK to drink as much as possible.

‘[While] obviously being sensible at the same time.’
