Taylor Swift Fan Storms Stage At London Show

Ed Sheeran was not the only surprise guest to take to the stage with Taylor Swift in London this weekend - a fan managed to dodge security to get close to the country music star.

The man ran up the steps at the O2 Arena and interrupted Swift as she sang her last song at the gig, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.

When he reached the stage he handed the singer a note before being escorted away by two of her security guards.

Swift maintained her composure and even shook the man's hand and smiled at him before carrying on singing.

The 24-year-old, who has won seven Grammy awards, was performing the first show of her new European tour, called Red.

She is in London for five sold-out shows this month.

It is not known who the man was or what his note to the star said.

Swift and Sheeran, who are known to be good friends out of the spotlight, performed his hit song Lego House on Saturday night.

After the show, she tweeted: "First night in London and @edsheeran came out to surprise the crowd with 'Lego House'. Earth-shattering screams ensued. What a lad. #redtour."

On Sunday she was joined on stage by Sam Smith, who won the Brits Critics' Choice award last month.

Swift, who has sold more than 26 million albums, is estimated by Forbes to be worth $220m (134m).

AEG Europe, which runs the O2, said that although Taylor provided her own security, the firm had carried out a review "and provided them with advice and help to ensure this doesn't happen again".
