Festival-goers left stunned after running into Calvin Harris – at service station bakery

A FESTIVAL-GOER was left stunned after running into Scots superstar Calvin Harris on the way back from Creamfields – in a service station bakery.

Livvy Elder was returning home to Consett, County Durham from Creamfields North festival on Monday with boyfriend Jake Foster and pal Ben Lloyd.

The 19-year-old and her friends decided to stop off at the Wetherby services on the A1 on their journey back to grab a coffee at bakery chain Pret a Manger.

However, the trio couldn’t believe their eyes when on their way in, they bumped into world-renowned DJ and chart-topper Harris.

The 39-year-old had been headlining the festival alongside Annie Mac and Becky Hill, and had seemingly had the same idea as Livvy, stopping off for a coffee amid his busy schedule.

The image shows Ben and Jake, both 19, standing on either side of the DJ with Jake clad in an AC Milan football shirt, whilst Livvy sports a Newcastle United top on the other side of her partner.

Harris from Dumfries, Dumfries and Galloway, is wearing a flannel shirt with his arm round Ben as he smiles, holding a pret a manger cup.

Livvy shared the photo to social media on Tuesday with the caption: “Casually bumping into our Calvin at the services at Wetherby today on our way home, what a legend.”

The post has since received over 9,600 likes and hundreds of comments from users left wowed by Livvy’s chance encounter.

Sarah Cove wrote: “F**k my life, the amount of time I spend in those services and nothing.”

Halley Claire commented: “Hope you sang ‘I feel so close to you right now’ I know I would’ve.”

Jack Merrin joked: “Thought he’d be a Leeds Skelton Lake kind of guy?”

Emma Louise Fryer added: “Aww he looks friendly and happy to see you.”

Liam Grant replied: “This is decent, what a nice guy.”

Speaking today Livvy said: “We had stopped on our way up home to Newcastle from Creamfields and my boyfriend Jake had said whilst he was coming out of the toilet, he’d noticed someone in a red flannel shirt who resembled Calvin Harris.

“Me and my friend Ben laughed and said there was no way he’d be in Wetherby services.

“We were laughing away and ended up sitting down outside of Pret cafe expecting to be proven right that it wasn’t him.

“When other people started to talk and chatter away, we noticed that it actually was him and that the biggest DJ in the world was actually a metre away.

“What made it even crazier was that it was two days after seeing him live in person at Creamfields playing an amazing set.

“My friend was the one to ask him for a photo and told him we were sorry for disturbing him for a photo, but he was the kindest man, so humble, said it was no problem at all.

“His girlfriend was lovely also, she even said I looked so cosy as I was totally wiped out from the festival and was in my pyjamas and Newcastle football shirt for the drive home.

“I was absolutely mortified to meet the biggest DJ in the world looking like that!

“It totally topped off our weekend and was a moment we will never forget.”
