Amused fans of the comedian commented on the picture in disbelief.

Fan Dawn Marie tweeted: “Wow! No fear from foxy!”

Another fan Scottish Stevie said: “He is more scared of you than you are of him.”

A fox believed to be the largest in Britain was discovered on an Aberdeenshire farm in 2012, weighing 17.2kg and 4ft 9in (1.4m) from nose to tip.

Still Game fans are eagerly awaiting the sitcoms comeback tour in Glasgow in September this year.

The stars of Still Game agreed to play eight extra comeback shows after fans snapped up tens of thousands of tickets in hours.

With 12 performances now scheduled at Glasgow’s 12,000-seat Hydro arena, Jack and Victor’s long-awaited return looks set to be seen by 144,000 people.
