The 20-year-old More Than This singer has been inundated with messages from online fans calling for him to break it off with Hollister beauty Eleanor and make amends with his childhood sweetheart from his hometown of Doncaster.
Directioners have sent photographs of the former couple to 19-year-old Eleanor, posted tributes ‘in memory’ of Louis' old relationship on YouTube and have been talking about the old lovers so much ‘Louannah’ - an amalgamation of Louis and Hannah - has been trending on Twitter.
Louis has been troubled by the unwanted attention and vehemently denies allegations that he dumped Hannah for Eleanor.

His spokesman said: 'It's upsetting for Louis and Eleanor when Twitter campaigns like this start. I know some of the fans will think it's a bit of fun, but it's unnecessary when they are both very happy together.'
Louis split with Hannah eight months ago and met Eleanor, who studies politics and sociology at Manchester University, eight weeks later.
Louis tweeted earlier in the week: ‘Truth of the matter is it’s actually not funny in the slightest. I’m reading through some horrible tweets very ****ed off!’

As the campaign continued, supposedly in celebration of Hannah’s 20th birthday, Louis - who appeared to be lost for words - tweeted: 'Blahhhhhhhhhhhh'.
The outburst was then retweeted by Eleanor.
And Hannah, who travelled to London every week to support her beau during his stint on The X Factor back in 2010, has said she feels no animosity towards Louis and his current squeeze.

Talking about the Twitter campaign, she told the Daily Mail: 'I felt terrible so I sent a text to Liam’s girlfriend [Liam Payne is another member of the band] Danielle saying to tell Eleanor that I’m sorry if I’ve offended her. I didn’t want to look like an evil ex-girlfriend.'
Feeling distanced, she added: 'When I look at him on the television now I know him as two different people – one is the boy from Doncaster, and the other is Louis from One Direction.'
