3 celebrities who support QPR – Did you know this?

Published

on

QPR moved to fifth in the Championship table with a 1-0 win over Cardiff City in the Welsh capital last night. 

A delightful ball forward from Andre Dozzell allowed Andre Gray to score the game’s only goal eight minutes before the half.

Mark Warburton’s side have combined exciting performances with positive results this season and seem to be bringing the good times back to W12.

They’ll be hoping for a play-off finish this term and if they can achieve that, it would be no surprise to see some famous faces come through the turnstiles at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

That’s right, there are a fair few celebrity R’s fans and today, we’ve highlighted three…

Pete Docherty – Musician 

The Libertines frontman may not be the A-List celebrity that he once was but he remains a massive fan of the west London club.

Pete Docherty has been pictured in a R’s shirt on many occasions, played at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, and even wrote a club fanzine in 1994.

And, of course, how could you forget the time he serenaded Charlie Austin on Soccer AM in 2015?

Bill Bailey – Comedian 

Bill Bailey may have been born and raised in the West Country but it is the west London club that have his heart, having moved to the latter in 1984.

The Comedian is a recognisable figure on British TV, particularly the panel shows, and even won Strictly Come Dancing last year.

Though you feel he’d trade that title to see the R’s get another pop at the Premier League.
