Tom Cruise, Paul McCartney, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis were among the stars who turned out to watch Taylor Swift perform at London’s Wembley Stadium over the weekend.

The 34-year-old singer drew in star-studded crowds for her Eras Tour shows at the iconic venue, with fan accounts on social media also sharing footage of the likes of Greta Gerwig, Rachel Zegler, Hugh Grant, and Jamie Dornan in the audience.

Another X post featuring crowd footage read: “Liam Hemsworth is in attendance for N2 at Wembley!”

Love Actually star Hugh Grant took to social media afterwards and praised Taylor for her "incredible" show and “amazing” team.

In a post to X he said, "Dear @taylorswift13, You have an incredible show, an amazing and v hospitable team and excellent if gigantic boyfriend (#tequilashots.)

Thanks so much from one ageing London boy, wife and thrilled 8 year old."

Paul McCartney was at the third and final night of the London stop and was spotted dancing with the crowd during But Daddy I Love Him.

Taylor's boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, attended her shows this weekend but during the last show he made a surprise appearance on stage - literally sweeping the pop star off her feet during the I Can Do It With a Broken Heart transition.

He then performed a short routine alongside Taylor's dancers, who were wearing the same attire as Travis.

On the second night, the Shake It Off singer brought out Paramore’s Hayley Williams - whose band are supporting Taylor during this leg of the tour - to sing their Speak Now vault track Castles Crumbling.

Introducing her friend to the stage, Taylor told the audience: “In the process of re-recording, I was really trying to reach out to artists that I’m such a fan of, or in the case of one of the albums, specifically on Speak Now, I reached out to artists who have been so influential in my music, in my writing, who I looked up to.

“I asked an artist who I was such a huge fan of to be on one of the songs, and she said yes. London, we are so lucky because when I asked Hayley Williams to come to this show, she said yes.”

The surprise songs segment also saw The Tortured Poets Department track thanK you aIMee for the first time, mashing it up with her 2010 song Mean.

During Mean, Swift changed the lyrics from “Someday, I’ll be livin’ in a big, ole city” to “Someday, I’ll be singing this song in Wembley."
