Alice Pyne, 17, hit headlines around the world by blogging about a 'bucket list' of goals she wanted to achieve during her four-year battle with Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Last year (12), Little Britain star Walliams dressed up as a zookeeper to surprise the youngster during a trip to London Zoo and presented her with an invitation to the Pride of Britain Awards.
After learning brave Pyne had finally succumbed to her illness at the weekend (12-13Jan13), he posted a photograph of himself and the youngster together at the zoo, alongside the message, ""I am so sad about the passing of Alice Pyne, who I met through the Pride of Britain Awards. What a beautiful and courageous girl. I will never forget meeting Alice Pyne.""
