Wood you believe it! Shoppers were stunned to see a bona fide rock star browsing stores in Solihull town centre last week.

Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood and new wife Sally Humphreys were out looking for a bargain or two in the borough.

Sarah Thomas, from Castle Bromwich, and colleague Barbara Barlow, of Hall Green, couldn’t believe their eyes when they spotted him last Wednesday.

“We just looked at each other and said ‘is that who it looks like’,” said 25-year-old Sarah.

“We went up and asked for a picture and he was very nice. He was a bit before my era, but he’s a real rock legend so I’ll always keep the photo!”

Ronnie, aged 65, tied the knot for the third time last month. Sally, 34, who was raised in Birmingham, runs a West End theatrical company.
