EXCLUSIVE: Taylor Swift steps off private jet hidden by an umbrella at Edinburgh airport before being whisked away under police escort as excitement builds for first UK leg of sell-out Eras tour

 

Taylor Swift has officially touched down in Scotland as her private jet lands at a VIP airport in Edinburgh. MailOnline can reveal that the American megastar, 34, arrived at lunchtime and was shrouded by umbrellas before being whisked away in a blacked-out vehicle accompanied by a police escort.

The attempt to stay out of view is reminiscent of a similar trick Taylor played when she arrived to Los Angeles airport in February before supporting her boyfriend Travis Kelce at the Super Bowl. The Cruel Summer singer will be performing tonight, Saturday and Sunday in Edinburgh before heading to Liverpool, Cardiff and Wembley.

Excitement is building ahead of the British leg of her sell-out Eras Tour, and devoted fans, who call themselves Swifties, have been queuing since 3am, braving the miserable Scottish weather as they do so. In true Scottish fashion, fans have covered their sparkling outfits with waterproof coats and resorted to wearing plastic bags over their shoes to stay dry.

Ellie Simmonds has been spotted in the queue wearing a t-shirt with the words I Love Taylor written across it. The British Paralympian swimmer was seen with a film crew speaking to fans who had been waiting for hours in line. Some Swifties pitched up tents to make an impromptu camp outside the home of Scottish rugby overnight.

At least 12 tents were set up close to the stadium gates as fans travelled from all over the country to be among the first in line to see the Anti-Hero star. Other Swifties have packed out hotels in Edinburgh’s historic centre having jetted in from the far corners of the globe. One fan told MailOnline Swift is rumoured to be staying at the popular Balmoral Hotel and has apparently booked out two entire floors after offering an entire wedding party £10,000 to move, they claimed.

This morning the first few hardy souls began gathering in Roseburn Park to wait for the entrance gates to open at 3pm this afternoon. First in to the stadium tonight will be Amber Small, 19, from Aberdeen, who was at the front of the VIP section. She said: ‘I can’t wait. I got here for 3am to be first in queue. I didn’t go to bed last night because I was so excited. ‘It was quite cold and dark but I’ve got my poncho on and I’m from North-East Scotland so I’m made of stern stuff.

‘I stayed the night at my friend’s aunt’s house as she lives in Edinburgh and sneaked out quietly about 2am. ‘Nothing was going to stop me from getting here early, she’s incredible, the best artist in the world. I’ve seen her twice, in London and Glasgow a few years ago. ‘A few other fans came after me. We got chatting and we’ve all marked our hands with marker pen to show our place in the queue. ‘I’m thrilled I’m number one! That feeling of being the first in the stadium this afternoon when the gates open at 3pm will be indescribable. And it’s only going to get better when
