The Vamps announce they will support Taylor Swift on the UK leg of her Red tour

When Taylor Swift announced that she was bringing her Red tour to the UK early next year, we did a cartwheel, a backwards sommersault and the end cheerleading dance from Bring it On all at once - we were THAT excited.

But while we were busy buying all the tickets we could get away with without our parents finding out, we were also pondering over just *who* she'd be bringing along as her support act - and it turns out we've been well and truly spoilt.

Even though Ed Sheeran might be a relatively undiscovered treasure in America, it's no surprise he doesn't fancy dressing up as a clown back on his home turf - it's a matter of pride, really. But luckily, the Swizzlestick's teamed up with an act just as swoonworthy as Eddy and his magic fingers, and it's only The bloody Vamps.

Yep, our fave new boyband will be supporting Tay when she hits the UK in February. They took to Twitter to announce the news and judging by the multiple exclamation marks and smiley face emoticon they used, we reckon they're pretty pleased about it.

Jeez, these boys have been well lucky lately, haven't they? Apart from that whole 'missing out on their first number one' thing, they've already supported Selena Gomez on her Stars Dance tour - so clearly she put in a good word with her best pal Taylor.

So far Swifty's announced five shows at London's O2, having added an extra two gigs after *massive* ticket demand. Now that her support act has been revealed as four instrument playing fit boys though, the real question is - JUST WHICH LAD WILL SHE SNOG THEN WRITE 20 SONGS ABOUT? We shall see.

What do you make of all this then? Glad The Vamps will be joining TayTay for her UK tour dates? Will you be snapping up some tickets now that you've heard this news? Let us know...
