Film star Daniel Radcliffe was spotted at a world class Essex gymnastic centre.

The actor met athletes at the South Essex Gymnastic Club based the Sporting Village in Basildon.

One of the workers posted on Instagram about the special visitor.

He said: "Not everyday Daniel Radcliffe/ Harry Potter rocks up to where you work."

It had a great response with followers commenting about the visitor. 

In July 2019 the star's connection to Southend was revealed during an emotional episode of BBC hit show Who Do You Think You Are.


The actor was reduced to tears while reading the suicide note of his great-grandfather. Samual Gershon was a diamond merchant and prominent jewellery. His firm was robbed in the 1930's and his death then followed.
