The first Taylor Swift fan is already camping in the queue outside the first UK show TWO DAYS early - as drone pics show preparations underway. The superstar singer, 34, will kickstart the sell-out UK leg The Eras Tour at Edinburgh's Murrayfield Stadium on Friday, June 7.

Drone photos taken today (Thursday) show workers setting up for the three-hour concert - where Taylor performs over 40 songs. Fans have even started camping to secure the best spot for the concerts.

Ellie Poulter, 19, is the first person to start queuing - arriving this morning at 6am with her tent - even though she has tickets for Saturday's show. The Scottish capital has been gripped by Swiftmania ahead of the shows with huge signs in shop windows welcoming fans to the city.

Shops have been selling 'in my Swiftie era' t-shirts and the arena has even re-branded its Scottish Gas sponsorship to 'Scottish Lass'.

Ellie said: "I think I'm the first person to start camping - there's just nobody here. I thought people were going to camp because people were queuing for the Paris shows for two nights.

"So I thought I was going to be camping for like a week before, but nobody else ended doing that so I thought two days would be fine to camp for that long. I've got a tent and I've took a duvet and that's it apart from my clothes - I have nothing and I didn't come prepared at all.

"I've got a hotel for the night of the show, so I'll basically chuck everything in there and get ready, so I've got nothing on me."

'I had a panic attack when she came out, I fell to the floor and was hyperventilating'

Ellie has only ever seen Taylor perform when she came out as a special guest at The 1975's gig last year.

She says she thinks she will be 'a mess' when the singer starts performing on stage on Saturday and that she can't wait to hear the singer's 2017 Reputation album live.

Ellie, from Oxford, said: "I'm so excited - I've been waiting a year for this. I'm excited for the surprise songs but I'm more excited for reputation because that's my favourite album.

"I saw her when she came out with The 1975 and we got to hear Anti-Hero for the first time ever. I had a panic attack when she came out, I fell to the floor and was hyperventilating - I couldn't breath and I was very excited and I was crying a lot.

"I'll be a mess - I was crying when I watched the movie at the cinema so I'll probably have a panic attack when she comes out."
