Lady Gaga has scored over 10 million followers on Twitter.

The singer became the first celebrity to reach the landmark over the weekend.

'10MillionMonsters! I'm speechless, we did it! It's an illness how I love you. Leaving London smiling,' she wrote on Twitter, posting up a pic of herself.

Gaga became the first person to pass nine million followers in March having overtaken Britney Spears last August,

The singer also apparently paid for one of her stranded fans to get home by train after she performed in Carlisle last night (16.05).

The fan was given £100 after she met the star, reports The Metro.  

Her new single 'Hair' is released on iTunes later today. Her second album 'Born This Way' is out on May 23.
