Newcastle United might have another famous fan thanks to Brazilian poster boy Bruno Guimaraes.

Newcastle United star Bruno Guimaraes has had Magpies supporters purring this week after a scintillating display at the heart of midfield against Sheffield United and now has another celebrity fan in dancer Louie Spence.

The charismatic choreographer didn't take a liking to the Brazilian for his role in the historic 8-0 victory at Bramall Lane however, rather being taken by a large poster of the midfielder outside St James' Park.

In a curious TikTok shared online on Tuesday Spence posed outside the cathedral on the hill and filmed a piece to camera while leaning against the poster of Guimaraes. He said: "Well get a load of me, I'm in Newcastle, so I thought I'd come and see the boys at Newcastle United. I've got...who have I got? Bruno Guimaraes.

"I can't even say him darling, but I like him. Anyway, I might just try and slip him and see if the boys have a training session, take some oranges for them in their break. You know, a little bit of footy, why wouldn't I? Hmm, nice. Bruno."

Viewers online welcomed Spence to the North East, one labelling him 'the man, the myth, the legend'. Another fan said: "Hope you love the Toon, Louis!"

Other Magpies fans found humour in the clip, comparing Spence's bald head to famous stars. One TikTok user joked that they 'thought Jonjo Shelvey was back for a moment' while another said: "Zidane to replace Howe? Here we go!"

Over on X, formerly Twitter, a popular account that parodies Newcastle United Sporting Director Dan Ashworth joked: "I can officially confirm that #NUFC have placed a permanent, lifetime ban on Louie Spence attending @NUFC games, both home and away for not knowing who our darling, @brunoog97 is. We are looking at the club's legal right to ban Louie from the City too."
