Sam Heughan Teases Travis Kelce About Taylor Swift: ‘She’ll Forget Him After Meeting Me!’

Sam Heughan, known for his role in ‘Outlander’, has a playful message for Taylor Swift as she prepares for her Eras Tour stop in Scotland — and it involves NFL star Travis Kelce.

In a humorous video posted to Instagram, the 44-year-old actor expressed his excitement for Swift’s upcoming performance in Edinburgh. Dressed in his full ‘Outlander’ costume, Heughan enthusiastically welcomed the singer to Scotland and made a cheeky comment about her relationship with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

“When she comes to Scotland and sees me in the audience, she’s going to forget all about him,” Heughan quipped, referring to Kelce. “She’s going to fall for a man in a ginger wig.”

Smiling into the camera, Heughan continued, “How can she resist? She’s going to shake him off and take me out instead. I’m really excited!” He paired his video with Swift’s track “Ready For It?” and captioned it, “Welcome to Scotland, Taylor! JAMMF is a Swiftie,” referencing his character James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser from ‘Outlander’.

While meant in good fun, Heughan’s playful jab hints at the friendly competition Kelce might face. Kelce and Swift have been making headlines since the NFL player revealed his attempt to give Swift a friendship bracelet with his phone number during her Eras Tour stop in Kansas City.

Since then, Swift and Kelce have been seen together frequently, including at this year’s Super Bowl and Coachella Music Festival in April. Swift’s latest album, ‘The Tortured Poets Department’, even includes references to their relationship.

Meanwhile, Heughan’s video followed a recent sighting of him in London, strolling hand-in-hand with an unidentified woman. The pair wore matching all-black outfits as they walked through Soho. Despite the sighting, Heughan has not confirmed any romantic relationships publicly and has previously mentioned that he is still searching for “the one.”

While promoting his romantic comedy ‘Love Again’ in May 2023, Heughan told PEOPLE he was hopeful about finding love, revealing he is a “romantic at heart.” Reflecting on his romantic gestures, he shared, “I’ve done all of the gift-giving and turning up when least expected, but, so far, I’m still looking.”
