One of the most iconic singers in the world right now has been spotted casually walking around Birmingham.
Shawn Mendes was spotted by fans across the city this week, as the Canadian pop sensation stopped off in Brum.
The reasons for his visit remain unclear - but fans have been sent into a frenzy as pictures of Shawn's visit emerged online.
Fans posed for pictures with the star around Brindleyplace and the city centre.
His visit coincided with the visit of another pop sensation, Troye Sivan, who performed at the city's 02 Academy on Tuesday evening.
Mendes gained a following in 2013, posting song covers on the video-sharing application Vine.
All three of Shawn's albums debuted atop the US Billboard 200, with the first one making Mendes one of five artists ever to debut at number one before the age of 18, and the third one making him the third-youngest artist to achieve three number one albums.
In 2017, Mendes became the first artist to land three number one singles on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, and in 2018, became the first artist achieve four number one singles on the Adult Pop Songs chart, before the age of 20.
One fan wrote: "Shawn Mendes is in Birmingham, UK and I live close to there and I'm having a melt down so god knows what I'll do when I see him perform next month..."
"I just got told that Shawn is still in Birmingham I pray I meet him..." a second wrote.
A third wrote: "Can yall keep me updated on where Shawn Mendes is? Cause he was casually strolling around Birmingham today and I'm desperate to meet him if y'all can tell me where he is I'll travel."
But some fans weren't so lucky, as one desperate fan tweeted: "SHAWN MENDES IS IN BIRMINGHAM AND IM 30MINS AWAY!!! I HAVE NO CHANCE OF FINDING HIM"
"Someone tell me where i can meet him!" another urged.
