Taylor Swift’s romance took centre-stage at a packed Wembley Stadium when the pop superstar thrilled ardent fans with a surprise appearance from NFL Superbowl-winning boyfriend Travis Kelce during the third Eras Tour performance in London.

The Lover singer invited the Kansas City Chiefs star on to the stage as she performed I Can Do It With a Broken Heart.

But the top hat and tuxedo-adorned gridiron star wasn’t just a spectator during the song - the 34-year-old drew screams from the crowd as he approached his girlfriend, picking her up from a faux fainting episode.

He then carried her to a red couch before fanning her next to two backup dancers.

The extra Eras drama capped off a star-studded start to Swift’s UK tour, which also featured the singer and her gridiron beau in their first social media photograph next to Prince William and his children Charlotte and George on Friday night.

Sunday night’s performance was also attended by Sir Paul McCartney, while her previous night’s show had Top Gun star Tom Cruise, 61, and Barbie director Greta Gerwig, 40, also in a cordoned off area.

Other stars who are reported to be at the concert include Love Actually actor Hugh Grant and married Hollywood couple Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher.

Author Holly Jackson, known for writing the series A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder, posted a photo of some friendship bracelets to her Instagram story - the colourful jewellery pieces have become a staple at Swift concerts.

Kelce has been a feature of the tour since its first show, joined by his brother Jason and their parents, as well as Swift’s folks Andrea and Scott, as she performed for almost 90,000 people.

It’s unknown whether Kelce was hitting up any of the Hollywood heavyweights for tips, since he has made no secret of the fact he would like to join the entertainment industry.

In May, he announced he was “stepping into new territory” by taking on his first major acting role.

Kelce, who has found global fame as the boyfriend of Taylor Swift, will star in the upcoming series Grotesquerie by super-producer Ryan Murphy.

He will star opposite Niecy Nash-Betts, Courtney B Vance and British star Lesley Manville in the new horror drama, due to be released later this year.
