Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have been spending time with some very famous faces as they enjoy a holiday to Sweden.

The Castaway star, 66, and Sleepless In Seattle actress, also 66, hung out in Stockholm this week with none other than the legendary pop group Abba.

Abba – made up of Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, are themselves from Sweden, first bursting into fame by representing the country at Eurovision.

Now back performing together – both in real life and in the incredible Abba Voyage hologram show in London – some of the members took some time out to spend time with Rita and Tom, who are old friends of the band.

On Thursday, Rita shared a snap to Instagram of herself and Benny grinning at the camera, Rita wrapped up against the Stockholm winter with a woollen hat.

Another group shot saw Rita and Tom pose alongside musician Björn and girlfriend Christina Sas, each of them beaming.

She added: ‘How lucky are we to have their music???’

Rita went on to encourage anyone visiting London to check out hologram show Abba Voyage, describing it as ‘an exhilarating experience unlike any other.’

It comes after the groundbreaking show was reported to be extended until 2026 after the holographic residency proved hugely popular in its first few months in action.

Meanwhile, Tom recently made headlines as he paid tribute to Mehran Karimi Nasseri, the man whose story inspired his acclaimed film The Terminal.

The Iranian man, who called himself Sir Alfred, is believed to have been born in 1945 but became stuck in legal limbo in Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris in 1988 after apparently lacking residency papers.

Nasseri died in November from natural causes, in the terminal in which he lived.

Reacting to the news, Tom said: ‘Sad to hear of the passing of Mehran Karimi Nasseri, aka Alfred, from Charles de Gaulle.

‘“The airport is not that bad.” No one knew that better than Mehran. Hanx.’
