BAFTA winning actor Hugh Grant made an appearance in Sussex ahead of the general election

The star was picured at the Langley Green Centre in Crawley on Saturday to talk to Labour supporters.

The town's current MP is Henry Smith of the Conservatives.

Introduced by Crawley's Labour candidate Peter Lamb, Hugh outlined his views ahead of the election, before taking questions from the public and media.

He said: "I wish I could stand here and say I'm a Labour man and make you like me more but I'm not," the Crawley Observer reports.

"I'm not anything. What I am is a bloke in a panic about the precipice we stand on in this country and I don't think this general election is like any other we've had in this country.

"The situation is grave. I have five children and I'm worried for them."
