A CRAZE for posing with pocket-sized pictures of Outlander star Sam Heughan is sweeping the internet.
A woman in labour, airline pilots, police and skydivers are among those posting the snaps from as far afield as Japan, the US, and Indonesia.
Scots star Heughan plays clan warrior Jamie Fraser in the TV series, which is filmed in Scotland, and has proved a smash hit around the world.
Fans of the series across the globe are cutting out eight-inch pictures of Jamie in his Highland warrior finery and posing with them in exotic locations and situations.
One of the weirdest pictures shows a woman in a full biohazard suit complete with the “pocket Jamie” inside the protective visor.
Referring to her suit, used to protect workers from deadly pathogens, she wrote: “BSL4 suit for those 18th cent germs! #PocketJamie at the centre for disease control.”
Pocket Jamie turns up on beaches in Hawaii and Crete, next to a gas crater in Turkmenistan, at a bullring in Spain, and at a Bruno Mars gig at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
The pilots of a Delta Airlines flight are among several flyers to pose cockpit pictures of Pocket Jamie and a woman doing a tandem skydive in California managed to keep a grip on the picture while falling at 120mph.
A woman from San Francisco posted pictures of her sister in labour with her pocket Jamie and afterwards with her newborn child. She tweeted: “#PocketJamie attended the birth of my first nephew!”
The TV series is based on the cult historical novels by American writer Diana Gabaldon.
Fans in the UK will have to pay to watch the series after it was bought by Amazon Prime.
The pocket Jamie costs £5.99 from the official Outlander store.
On the site it states: “Let Jamie watch over your favorite space with the ‘Pocket Jamie’.
“Standing at 8″ tall, this piece brings your favorite Scottish lad into your home or office.”
The TV series was shot at locations all over Scotland including including Doune Castle near Dunblane, Falkland and Culross in Fife, Blackness Castle in West Lothian and the Highland Folk Museum in Newtonmore.
