Swiftmania has made its way to the UK, and The Eras Tour has had a slew of celebrities attending. Hugh Grant in particular has given Taylor Swift’s show the stamp of his “ageing London Boy” approval.

The “Cruel Summer” hitmaker launched the highly-anticipated UK leg of her record-breaking show with three sold-out shows in Edinburgh, before making her way to Liverpool, Cardiff and London. 

And none other than Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery actor Grant was in attendance at one of her shows in the capital alongside his wife Anna Elisabet Eberstein and their eight-year-old daughter.

He took to X (formerly Twitter) on 23 June following the star’s mega three-hour set, calling the experience “incredible” and suggesting that he did “tequila shots” with the singer’s “excellent if gigantic boyfriend” Travis Kelce.

“Thanks so much from one ageing London boy,” he said, harking back to Swift’s Lover track “London Boy”.

In one TikTok, the Wonka actor was spotted eating carrots as the singer performed.
