A-listers including Tom Cruise and Greta Gerwig have been spotted in the crowd of Taylor Swift’s Saturday night show at Wembley Stadium.

The 34-year-old US pop star’s first date in London was attended by Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer and the Prince of Wales and his two eldest children, who took a selfie with the Anti-Hero singer.

On Saturday evening, fans posted videos online which appeared to show Top Gun star Cruise, 61, at the stadium, in an area cordoned off from fans, wearing a black blazer and white T-shirt.

Another video showed Barbie director Gerwig, 40, walking with an individual through a part of the stadium also separated from fans.

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.

Elsewhere, 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.

Channel 4 news anchor Krishnan Guru-Murthy wrote in an Instagram story that he was “quite excited” to go to the concert and shared a photo of his ticket.

Swift’s boyfriend, NFL star Travis Kelce, is also said to be at the concert and was seen on Friday night, joined by his brother Jason and their parents, as well as Swift’s parents Andrea and Scott, as she performed for almost 90,000 people.

After her first performance in the capital, the 14-time Grammy winner posted a photo she had taken with Kelce and royal family members William, Princess Charlotte and Prince George.

A video from the evening, widely circulated online, appeared to show William “dad dancing” to catchy pop song Shake It Off.

Taking a break from the campaign trail, Sir Keir attended the first of the London Eras gig with his wife Victoria, and posted a photo of them on social media captioned “‘Swift’ campaign pitstop”.

Asked about the concert by reporters in south London, the Labour leader replied: “She was fantastic. Absolutely fantastic.”

He added: “I know I will be asked what is my favourite song and I am not going to pretend I have got every album and know every song, although Change is the one for obvious reasons.”

Swift performed in front of other celebrity fans including Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan, Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness and model Cara Delevingne.

Her billion-dollar juggernaut tour takes fans through her back catalogue, including hits from albums 1989, Red and Midnights.

The revamped set list, which she first unveiled at the Paris shows, also includes songs from her latest offering The Tortured Poets Department.

To celebrate her arrival in the capital, murals, a special Tube map, a Taylor trail and a series of events have all been created.

The US pop star has already played shows in Edinburgh, Liverpool and Cardiff and she will take to the stage at Wembley again on Sunday before the tour moves on to Dublin.

She will return to London again for five nights in August.
