Stay with Me singer Sam Smith has shared a number of pictures from his trip to the set of The Hobbit in New Zealand, saying it was the best day of his life and that he would love to be a hobbit and live like Frodo Baggins in The Shire.

Smith's first picture from the trip was taken outside the entry to the set, which he posted with the caption: "THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING."

He later added: "I would chop off my toe to live here and be a hobbit x."

Posting his final photo, he said: "What a day. I am coming again. Until then I'm actually gonna build my own hobbit house. No joke x."
