Lady Gaga stuns locals by popping into pub for drink in fishnets and big knickers after bizarre X Factor show
Regulars spluttered into their pints in a pub in west London on Sunday night when a very unlikely customer popped in.
Not many drinkers at the Castle, in North Acton, arrive in a matching white leotard, minidress and boots with ripped fishnet tights and sunglasses.
But that's precisely the outlandish outfit Lady Gaga was wearing after her performance on X Factor - and with her group of burly minders, she made quite an impression on the locals.

Onlookers said she was there to pick up fish and chips from the pub, which is part of the Fuller's brewery chain.
But for once Lady Gaga seemed almost shy and covered her face as she left The Castle with a minder.
Bemused drinkers watched in amazement as she breezed in and out.
It was the second time she visited a British drinking hole in almost as many days - she was spotted lounging in a booth at a Blackpool on Friday between rehearsals for her performance for the Royal Variety show.
Wearing a miniskirt, grey blazer and black military hat, she ate fish and chips in the lounge at the Devonshire Arms.
Most of the locals at The Castle pub were dressed more conservatively on a Sunday evening than Lady Gaga
Manager David Haberlin said: 'She came in about 7.15pm. She just wanted to have a traditional British meal and she had our fish and chips.
'Then she was happy to sign a few autographs and have her picture taken.
'Afterwards she said she had enjoyed herself and said thanks for the meal. She was very polite and well-mannered. She's certainly the biggest star we have ever had in here.'
Mixing with the locals: The Castle pub in North Acton, where Gaga was drinking last night
Her latest pub visit came after a bizarre
performance on The X Factor results show where she asked for a giant
bathroom to be built onstage.
The production team duly complied - with one condition. The singer was not allowed to centre her performance around the toilet.
It was an understandable concern,
given that at the last major performance by the eccentric U.S. star -
at the MTV Awards in New York in September - she had hung from the
ceiling covered in fake blood after pretending to stab herself while
performing her hit Paparazzi.

The 23-year-old is also notorious for performing in a conical bra that shoots out fireworks.
But bearing in mind the family audience and TV guidelines, X Factor chiefs banned her from any worrying performances.
Luckily for them, the worst she did was cavort with a host of dancers in the huge 4metre-long bath while performing her latest single, Bad Romance.

In usual fashion, the singer did not disappoint, singing from a giant 4metre-long bath
She also insisted on a closed set for rehearsals, with insiders revealing it was because she didn't want anyone to see her without her make-up on.
Lady Gaga - real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta - was not the only diva making demands on the show.
Janet Jackson insisted that she pre-record her performance for last night in a 'closed set' on Saturday.
She then ran over to the toilet and began playing the piano
This meant everybody apart from crucial production staff on the ITV talent contest were banned from the studio.
A show source said: 'We've had some
of the biggest stars in the world on our stage, but they never normally
ask for a closed set.
'It means that even the contestants are not allowed in to watch.
'But everyone was so happy to have Janet on the show that she was allowed this special treatment.'

Miss Jackson, 43, is still grieving for her superstar brother Michael and her performance was shown after the four remaining contestants had performed some of his greatest hits.
It was only her second performance since his death aged 51.
She said last month: 'It's been a
tough year - you have your days where it's just, really, it's hard to
believe, and a day doesn't go by that I don't think about him.'
The X Factor got 13 million viewers on Saturday, as BBC ballroom show Strictly Come Dancing got 9.6 million.
Janet Jackson also performed, but insisted on doing a pre-recorded performance on Saturday night
She performed a medley of songs, including All For You
She also demanded a 'closed set' during rehearsals, meaning the contestants were banned from seeing her
