Francis Bourgeois takes Rosalía trainspotting

Spanish singer Rosalía has been going trainspotting with TikTok sensation Francis Bourgeois - the nation's favourite trainspotter.

Writing on TikTok, Francis said: "I was hoping to see a class 91 at Kings Cross. Amazingly, I ended up seeing @La Rosalia too!"

“Hang on a minute – isn’t that Rosalía?” he said in the video. As he approached the Spanish singer-songwriter who was standing farther down the platform, he said “I’m gonna go say hello to her. I love her music.”

We know that Francis is a long-time music fan, as he sometimes drops music of his own - including this rap-style beat with snappy drums and catchy keys about the British Rail Class 465 trains.

Rosalía was then approached by Bourgeois, who asked as to what had brought her to London's Kings Cross station. “What are you doing here?” she replied. To which he responded: “I’m checking out the Class 91s.”

The two then waved goodbye to an LNER train as it left the station Francis screamed "thank you" to the train passengers and crew.
