Aussie Hollywood actor Hugh Jackman admits he regrets passing up on the chance to invest in Norwich City.

Jackman has previously revealed how he visited her a number of times as a child and made a trip to Carrow Road when he was 16.

But, speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, he revealed how he had been approached about investing in the Canaries, before their rapid rise through the leagues and back into the Premiership.

He said: "I got a letter about a year ago saying, 'Being such a huge Norwich City fan would I like to be a celebrity investor?', like a small part-owner.

"I said, 'I think that's a little stretched, I've been to Carrow Road once, my mum took me', so I decided not to invest.

"And since then they're on a run, so what do I know?"

After last month's 2-1 Carrow Road win over Sunderland, Jackman tweeted: "congratulations norwich city...first home win of this EPL season...many more to come!"
