Olivia Rodrigo stopped by Stamford Bridge while in London this month and was given the special treatment by Chelsea.

Pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo has awkwardly admitted she is 'undecided' if she is a Chelsea fan, despite being given the red carpet treatment by the club this month.

The 20-year-old spent time in London this month to promote her new single 'bad idea right?' and found time between interviews to head to Stamford Bridge and watch Chelsea's Premier League opener against Liverpool.

Rodrigo was given the star treatment as she filmed a message for Chelsea fans on the famous turf and stopped for a chat and a photo with full-back Ben Chilwell. Speaking after the game, the singer posted a video on the club account and said: "Hey, my name is Olivia Rodrigo and today I'm at the Bridge for my very first football game. I had the best time and am so happy I could attend."

After the footage emerged Chelsea wasted no time in proclaiming a 'new Chelsea fan unlocked' and Chilwell took to his social media to celebrate 'great news hearing you're now a blue'.

Fans online loved the news that Rodrigo had become a Blues fan. One wrote: “This wasn’t on my 2023 bingo card but i‘m living for it.”

Another joked: “Okay seriously where is she possibly gonna play, this squad is so bloated man.”

However, it appears the club and vice-captain were a little too eager to celebrate their latest famous fan as just days later Rodrigo admitted she hadn't been all too convinced by her trip to the ground.

During an interview with BBC Radio 1, the 'driver's licence' star was asked if she was now a Chelsea fan having visited Stamford Bridge the previous weekend. A little sheepishly, Rodrigo replied: "Undecided."

During that interview the pop star was shown a series of classic British television clips, which included the infamous moment Chris Kamara coined his 'I don't know, Jeff' line.

The moment has become footballing folklore and Rodrigo appeared to find the clip amusing, albeit a little confusing. Reacting to the hilarious Soccer Saturday moment, she said: "I guess that's a football, soccer thing? That's hilarious, his accent makes it so much better too. So good. That was me at the soccer game yesterday. I didn't know anything that was going on."
