In the post, he said that he had stopped at the landmark as part of a long family bike ride through the county.

Amazingly, the 28-year-old said that the journey was inspired and led by his 81-year-old grandma.

Mr Booth, who lives in Sevenoaks, visited the church several years before during the filming for the 2013 BBC adaptation of Great Expectations.

The star has appeared in several other popular movies and TV shows including Romeo and Juliet, Jupiter Ascending and Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt.

He has lived in Kent for most of his life, having moved to the area from Greenwich aged 10, and attending Solfield School and Bennett Memorial Diocesan School in Tunbridge Wells.
