Hollywood star Will Smith delighted pupils when he showed up at a Lambeth school this morning.

Youngsters at St Martins in the Fields High School for Girls, in Tulse Hill, had no idea that The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Men in Black star was going to turn up at their assembly.

Headteacher Lesley Morrison said Smith was ‘fantastic’ with the girls and that he was a very articulate speaker.

The visit was part of a tour of Brixton, with Smith being shown around by Streatham MP Chuku Umunna and MP for Dulwich and West Norwood, Tessa Jowell.  

“Early visit with @Chuku Umunna Brixton Market Brixton Village then to the dept of Black Cultural Archives with Dawn Hill and Will Smith,” tweeted Dame Tessa.

“Will Smith wanted to see ‘London’s Harlem’! So proud to show him the best of Brixton!”
