Britney Spears was hissed and booed by fans at the première of her debut movie Crossroads.

The 20-year-old pop princess turned up an hour late, annoying the thousands of fans waiting outside the Odeon cinema in Leicester Square.

To make matters worse, she didn't go on a walkabout before the screening or sign any autographs, leaving some fans in tears.

Sporting a backless, halter-neck silver sequined dress, she was rushed inside by security staff.

The 3,000 fans booed and chanted her name, although she made a brief appearance on the cinema's balcony.

Jane Willis said she had travelled with her daughter Gemma, 11, from Chingford, Essex, to see the star. She said:

"Gemma's crying her eyes out because she couldn't see a thing.

"How does Britney expect people to go and see her film if she can't be bothered to say hello to her fans."

Celebs at the première included teen singer Charlotte Church and S Club 7's Rachel Stevens.

The film opens in the UK on Friday.
