    The London Tube may be a commuter’s worst nightmare, but sometimes you could be lucky and spot a couple of celebs. Just imagine getting on the Central Line and coming face to face with the lines of Jay-Z or One Direction.

    Well, these 11 famous faces have all been spotted taking the Underground just like any average human being. Scroll through and be sure to keep your eye out in future for A-list fellow passengers. You never know…

    Eddie Redmayne

    The Fantastic Beasts star was recently spotted reading the paper on the tube, just like any old regular commuter would. It’s not the first time Eddie Redmayne has been spotted on the tube – a quick Twitter search reveals that fame doesn’t stop him from taking the tube on numerous occasions. He’s sometimes joined by his wife, Hannah Bagshawe, too.

    Niall Horan

    One Direction’s Niall Horan posted an Instagram of him and a friend taking the Piccadilly Line during the Easter Weekend. Oh how we wish we’d been on that tube.


    Kendall Jenner

    Kendall Jenner is used to stretch limousines, private jets and huge superyachts – but it didn’t stop the supermodel and reality TV star hopping on the tube on her last trip to London.

    Don’t believe us? There’s picture AND video evidence of Kendall riding the underground – seemingly without a soul recognising her.

    And she’s far from the only star to take the tube. Just take a look at all the other celebrities who are partial to a bit of Jubilee action…

    Jay-Z & Chris Martin

    Two huge celebrities for the price of one – whoever got on the Jubilee line that day must have been thanking their lucky stars they had enough battery on their iPhone to capture this great shot.


    RiRi couldn’t be bothered to sit in the back of a taxi when going to see Drake in concert at the 02 – she realised how much quicker the tube was, and hopped right on.

    The Queen

    Well, if it’s good enough for the Queen, we’ll certainly stop complaining about the commute.

    David Cameron

    We’re sure this was part of a cunning photo op, but who’s to say Dave didn’t just want a quick trip to Downing Street without any blasted traffic?

    Eddie Redmayne

    A Londoner through and through, Eddie’s no stranger to the tube’s hallowed tunnels.

    Harry Styles

    He nearly escaped without being papped – but didn’t quite pull it off.

    Benedict Cumberbatch

    What a nice guy – he even took a selfie with a fellow passenger, who couldn’t resist documenting his public transport journey.

    Kate Middleton

    We can say with absolute certainty that we’ve never looked this good on the London Underground, but if anyone can show us the way, it’s Kate.

    So, there you have it.
