A NEWLYWED couple got an extra-special wedding present when Roger Daltrey unexpectedly performed at their reception.

The Who frontman (inset) was staying in the Mar Hall Hotel, near Glasgow, ahead of his band's performance in the city, and met bride and groom Susan and Carl Smith on Saturday.

After posing for some pictures, Daltrey joined the wedding band on stage to sing Can't Explain.

Mobile phone footage of the performance has become a social media hit.

Wedding band Milestone were stunned to have a new singer for the song and said they had to "busk our way through".

Daltrey congratulated the couple, who said they were amazed to see him perform for them.

Susan posted on The Who's Facebook page: "Absolutely overwhelming! The story we will be telling for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much."
