Emma added that she had been a devout follower of Kim for years, and regularly posted drawings of her.

While Kim had previously 'liked' Emma's drawings, on Sunday she shared one of Emma's uploads to her 48 million followers.

"I was over the moon that she actually liked it," Emma said.

"I was sitting by my computer at about 11, and my phone just blew up. she retweeted it, put it on Facebook and her Instagram. I had to do a double take," she added.
