UK Eurovision entrant Engelbert Humperdinck
was reportedly mobbed by fans yesterday as he made his way to the arena.
The veteran crooner's coach broke down in Baku, Azerbaijan, and he decided to get out and meet his fans outside, reports The Sun
However, the crowd soon became larger than expected and he was forced to climb on top of a police car before being taken away.
"Fans were demanding pictures and autographs but things got so crazy he had to jump in a police car," a source said.
"Engelmania's hit Baku – people are going bonkers."
BBC bosses have reportedly brought in extra security for the 'Love Will Set You Free' singer.
Humperdinck has been recognised as the oldest ever male Eurovision singer
, at 76 years and 24 days old.
The lineup for the Eurovision 2012 final was confirmed after the second live semi-final
last night (May 25).
The 57th annual Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Baku, Azerbaijan on Saturday, May 26.
Graham Norton will host the final live at 8pm on BBC One.
