Teenage heartthrob Justin Bieber was singing in Manchester a few days ago.

After the gig, he decided to sample some of the city’s night life at a fashionable bar called Sankey’s.

You might have thought they would have laid out the red carpet.

But instead he was shown the door.

Pundits wondered if the club regarded itself as too cool for the Canadian pop star.

But the reason for his exclusion was that he didn’t have a ticket — for the Jewish student Purim do that had been booked for the venue.

Next time, be sure to bring some fancy dress with you, Justin.
