He jokingly said: "We're gonna go see Taylor Swift play in Scotland and I think most of the cast is going.

"She obviously doesn't know this, but when she comes to Scotland and sees me in the audience she's going to forget all about him and will be all for a man in a ginger wig...how could she resist?

"She's going to shake him off and take me out instead...I'm really excited!"

The video concludes with a scene of Heughan mimicking Swift's trademark heart hands gesture towards the camera.

Fans flocked to the comments, one wrote: "Outlander x Taylor Swift… my worlds collided", another added, "I’d dump Travis in a heartbeat for Sam!! Taylor, girl make the right choice here for all of us!!"
