An impromptu visit by two stars of the hit television series Glee has left pupils at a Harrogate school in a spin.

Heartthrobs Cory Monteith and Mark Salling – who play Finn Hudson and Noah “Puck” Puckerman in the US musical comedy drama screened on E4 – are on a UK tour but are such fans of disc golf they travelled from Manchester to Ashville College to make use of the school’s nine-basket course.

When schoolmates alerted her to the actors’ visit, pupil Katherine Bullock, 15, of Lancaster Park Road, raced down to the school field to meet them.

“It was a surreal experience – I’m a massive Glee fan,” she said.

“I never would have thought they would be here, I thought it was a joke.”

Disc golf involves players throwing a disc into a basket or at a target. The course at Ashville was installed in October 2004.
