Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour continues in the UK – but Gillian McKeith’s bid to get the most coveted tickets in town appears to have ended in disaster.

The American superstar, 34, has packed out stadiums across the country in recent weeks and the former TV nutritionist desperately wanted a piece of the action.

However, after Gillian believed she’d secured a pair of tickets for one of Taylor’s shows at Wembley – the June 22 date – it turned out the exact opposite had sadly occurred.

After handing over hundreds of pounds, it turned out the person she’d paid had never had tickets in the first place, leaving Gillian, 64, significantly out of pocket.

Sharing the news on social media alongside her daughter Afton, 24, Gillian had strong words for the person who ‘scammed’ her out of the precious tickets.

‘I just want to say we have a problem – we got scammed,’ she began, with the pair sitting in the back of a cab having attended a lavish do in the centre of London.

‘We had thought that we bought Taylor Swift tickets and it turned out the person was lying about having the tickets and just took our money,’ she continued.

Gillian then informed her fans that the person who claimed to have the tickets had been avoiding them: ‘And there’s been one excuse after another and they get more fantastic as each day goes on, the excuses.’

Afton then added that she was ‘devastated’ about not being able to go, with the person who scammed them apparently known to the mother-daughter pair.

‘We thought we had tickets, turns out it was all a facade and a lie just to take our money. Someone we actually knew,’ she said into the camera.

The pair then pleaded with their followers to help them secure tickets for later Wembley dates, but it’s not yet known how well that campaign is going.

Taylor’s tour is currently the subject of controversy after Foo Fighters frontman and songwriter Dave Grohl took a swipe at the Love Story singer while on stage in London.

He said: ‘I know we were joking about the Taylor Swift tour earlier, I know that she’s on her Eras Tour. I’m telling you – you don’t want to suffer the wrath of Taylor Swift.

‘So we like to call our tour the Errors Tour because I feel like we’ve had more than a few eras and more than a few f*****g errors as well. That’s because we actually play live.’

Taylor is believed to have responded to Dave’s comment almost immediately, thanking her ‘live band’ the following night during the last of her Wembley shows until August.

Swiftie superfan Gillian rose to fame in the 2000s as the host of You Are What You Eat and was a regular guest on reality food health series Supersize vs Superskinny.

While not having any official qualifications as a nutritionist, Gillian still became one of the biggest names in the health food industry via her work on TV.

She controversially competed in the 2010 series of I’m A Celebrity, famously fainting on live TV after being nominated for yet another bushtucker trial.

Gillian became only the second contestant in the show’s 10-year history (at the time) to refuse to take part in a trial, forcing ITV to refund all those who had voted for her.
