Holly wrote on Facebook: “There were about nine people at my gig tonight, and one of them turned out to be Bill Nighy.”

She added: “Didn’t manage a selfie, he just apologised for having to leave before the end, tapped on his book and said he had to work, then I said ‘yes, get back to work!’ whilst shaking my finger at him. It was magical.

“I think he’s working in York at the moment. He bought a CD too – what a kind fella!”
