Outlander star Sam Heughan has confessed he has a huge celebrity crush on Taylor Swift as he revealed he has tickets to see the Love Story singer in Edinburgh in just a few days time.

The Scottish actor, who is best known for his role as Jamie Fraser in the iconic historical fiction drama, has taken to Instagram to open up about his plans to make Taylor fall in love with him when she hopefully spies him in the audience at Murrayfield Stadium.

The global renowned popstar is bringing her Eras World Tour to Murrayfield Stadium this weekend for three nights from June 7 to June 9.

Scottish swifties are finally getting their turn to see Taylor in the flesh this week with Sam Heughan also seemingly counting down the days as he revealed he will be among the crowds with multiple members of the Outlander cast.

The 44-year-old actor, who hails from Balmaclellan in Dumfries and Galloway, took to Instagram earlier this evening to share an interview clip from the Outlander set where he spoke about his crush on Swift, 34.

In the footage, which features Swift's track, 'Are You Ready For It?' in the background, Sam says: "We're gonna go see Taylor Swift play in Scotland and I think most of the cast are going."

He adds: "She obviously doesn't know this but when she comes to Scotland and sees me in the audience, she's gonna forget all about... him," with a cheeky grin, referring to Swift's current boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs player Travis Kelce before confidently adding she will "fall in love in with a man in a ginger wig."

He continued: "How could she resist? You know, she's gonna shake him off and take me out instead. I'm really excited."

He ended the clip by creating a heart shape with his hands, a known Swiftie symbol which fans make throughout the Fearless Era of Swift's show.

The Scots actor did not disclose which night he would be attending the Eras Tour at Murrayfield Stadium but confirmed that he would be attending with many of his Outlander co-stars who were lucky enough to get their hands on tickets.

His confession comes just days after Sam was spotted in London getting cosy with a mystery brunette last weekend.

The pair held hands as they walked through the streets of London together, both dressed in casual outfits.

The Outlander actor has not been romantically connected to another female since dating Australian model Monika Clarke back in 2022 and fans have been left mystified as to who this new mystery woman is.

However, if Sam's dreams do come true at Murrayfield Stadium and Taylor picks him out of the crowd, his latest flame may not last long either.
