A bloke was forced to go on a date with a cardboard cut-out of Taylor Swift after losing at fantasy football.

Greig Dick was forced to sit at a table with it as a forfeit for coming last in his league.

Unlucky Greig and his date were both given a menu at a local restaurant in Motherwell, Scotland.

A grinning waitress took their order.

The fake Taylor was later taken to a casino where Greig put a £22 bet on red – a nod to the singer's hit tune and album.

Later she joined the lad and his mates for a pint in a pub.
