Netflix has treated pop queen Mariah Carey to a special early screening of series five of The Crown at her home as a reward for being the show’s “ultimate superfan”.

Carey also revealed that her song Emotions, released in 1991, features in the first episode of the new season.

“Bonus fact: my song Emotions is in the first episode! ahhhh!! Thank you @netflix.”

Netflix tweeted: “Everyone knows how much @MariahCarey loves The Crown so we hooked up the ultimate superfan with a queen-calibre early screening of the Season 5 premiere inside of her home where she watched the first episode, which features her song Emotions!”
