Keanu Reeves delighted locals at a Northamptonshire pub when he made a surprise visit to The Fox and Hounds in Charwelton on Wednesday.

One resident said the actor had “made our year”.

Dianne King, 46, had been at the pub with her husband, Jason, and said she could not believe her eyes.

“We really didn’t think it was him at first,” she told the PA news agency.

“Why would Keanu Reeves be in our local pub? But when I realised [it was him], I went over just to make sure.

“He was really nice and asked if I wanted a photo, and funnily enough I did. Who wouldn’t?”

“He has made our year. What an honour.”

It is not known why Reeves was in Northamptonshire.
