Is this the world's biggest Beyoncé superfan?

Meet the woman who has spent £60k on merch and tour visits, appeared in two of her films, and has a separate bank account dedicated to spending on the star.

Agren Blom, 28, first became a Beyoncé mega-fan when she saw the singer promoting her 2006 album ‘B’Day’ on TV.

Since then, she’s been to 43 shows, spent £10k alone on merchandise - and even had a conversation with Jay-Z about how much she loves his wife.

The prison therapist works seven days a week to pay for her hobby - and says her shows are an "escape" from real life.

Devoted Agren says the star is "family" and she feels just as close to her as she does her parents, and once attended TEN dates on one tour.

She's been to so many shows with the same banner Bey now recognises her from the stage.

And when she showed it to Jay-Z he signed it and snapped a pick - presumably to show his other half.

Agren's connection to the singer is so deep she says she feels every time she struggles with something in life, Beyoncé releases a new song with the answer.

Agren from Appingedam, Netherlands, said: “I’m so thankful to Beyoncé for giving me all of this - her music resonates with me like nothing else.

"I work hard to dedicate myself to her - even though we don’t personally know each other.

“I have my full-time job and my side hustle - I work seven days a week and I even opened up a new bank account just for her. I call it my Beyoncé bank account.

“Her shows give me an escape from real life. You always feel good when you’re there.

“She’s as much a part of my life as my mum or my dad - she’s like family.”

Agren remembers dancing along to ‘B’Day’ with her school friends at the age of eight.

The singer was, at the time, on her ‘The Beyoncé Experience’ world tour - but Agren’s parents said she was too young to go.

Instead, they bought her some posters - and she put them up around her classroom.

Three years later, she went to her first concert - the ‘I Am…’ world tour at the Sportpaleis van Ahoy in Rotterdam, on May 2, 2009.

She said: “I looked up at her, and she just looked like a doll to me. It was like she wasn’t real.

“All I could do was cry - I was so overwhelmed from what I saw.

“From that point, my love for her just grew.”

When the star was next on tour, between 2013 - 2014, Agren had already opened up her Beyoncé bank account - and she spent around £10k to attend ten dates.

She watched her perform in cities like London, Rotterdam, Brussels and Antwerp - and even travelled to Chelmsford to watch her headline V Festival in August 2013.

Over the last 10 years, Agren has been to 33 more stops across four more tours - including On the Run, Formation and Renaissance.

She created a banner to take to each show, which she regularly updates with the number of times she’s seen Beyoncé.

“I’m always VIP, always front row,” Agren added.
