Lionel Richie Makes Shock Appearance In UK Parliament Ahead Of Glastonbury Performance

Lionel Richie shocked Westminster MPs when he made a surprise appearance in Parliament on Monday.

It certainly wasn't him those parliamentarians were looking for in the Commons!

The 'Hello' star managed to upstage Education Secretary Nicky Morgan, who was taking questions from MPs at the time, leaving parliamentarians star struck.

Labour MP Carolyn Harris was barely able to contain her excitement as she posed for a picture with the wandering stranger.

Richie first entered the Commons chamber behind Speaker John Bercow's chair and waved to the public gallery before leaving.

He then took a trip up to the House of Lords public gallery, where former Tory frontbencher Francis Maude was making his maiden speech as a peer.

The upcoming Glastonbury gig-player was later pictured offering photographs to a group of excited schoolchildren.

The tour was courtesy of Labour's Lord Levy. It's unclear yet whether the singer will be dancing on the ceiling or intends to be in Westminster all night long.
