The American singer-songwriter is in London as part of her Eras tour

Sir Keir Starmer has been spotted at Taylor Swift's concert at Wembley as the Labour leader made a "'Swift' campaign pitstop".

The Leader of the Opposition, who was in Scotland and Essex earlier today, rushed off to the home of English football after sitting down with GB News' political editor Christopher Hope.


Starmer shared a snap alongside his wife Victoria with a crowd of tens of thousands watching the American singer-songwriter.

Swift's Eras tour arrived on British shores on June 9 as fans crammed into Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh.

Liverpool's Anfield Stadium, Cardiff's Principality Stadium and Wembley will also hold events.

Swift will hold other events in London tomorrow and on Sunday during her 36-part tour.

The 34-year-old will return to the British capital between August 15 and August 20.

Starmer's social media post sees the Labour leader join a growing lift of Westminster Swifties.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who is going head-to-head with Starmer on July 4, revealed he was a fan of Swift after reportedly attending a concert in the US earlier this year.

Sunak’s predecessor Liz Truss even managed to snap a photo with the music star at the BAFTA after-party at London's Grosvenor House in February 2019.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan is also a "proud Swiftie" and spoke positively of the American singer-songwriter ahead of her arrival in the capital.

Khan said: "As a proud Swiftie, I’m very excited that Taylor Swift and her record-breaking Eras Tour will be in London next month.

"Her eight gigs will bring more than half a million music fans together, providing a more than one billion pound boost to our hospitality sector and the wider economy."

However, not all politicians have been positive about Swift.

Former US President Donald Trump was involved in a spat with the 34-year-old.

He said: "There's no way she could endorse Crooked Joe Biden, the worst and most corrupt President in the History of our Country, and be disloyal to the man who made her so much money."

Trump added: "Joe Biden didn't do anything for Taylor, and never will."
