Amy Macdonald urges UK to tune in to Still Game return


SCOTS singer Amy Macdonald has pleaded with fans south of the border to watch the return of Still Game tonight.

The 29-year-old is known to be a massive fan of the popular Scottish sitcom and wants the rest of the UK to join in the fun.

She took to Twitter last night to post a note to her 102,000 followers ahead of Jack and Victor’s return, which will be broadcast to the whole of the UK for the first time.

She posted a screenshot of the note with the caption: “Calling all comedy fans…#StillGame”

The note read: “Friends in the rest of the UK. For the first time ever, you guys are getting to watch the best comedy in Britain, (in my opinion) at the same time as us lucky Scots. 9.30pm prime time Friday night slot on BBC1.

“Still Game is my favourite show. It was my mastermind subject and it never fails to make me laugh out loud.

“The cast are wonderful. A great bunch of amazing actors and thoroughly lovely people. This show deserves to have crazy high viewing figures and I’m convinced that once you see it, you will want to binge on the previous six series on Netflix.

“Set your planners, this is not to be missed.”

Her followers shared her excitement ahead of the new series, which is back on our screens after nearly a decade.

@DavidLinden wrote: “ I just finished watching season six again on Netflix. The episode where they go to the big country manor is brilliant!”

@WarbsIsMagic replied: “If it wasn’t for that show, me and the missus couldn’t communicate. Everything is just Still Game references.”

@neilbennett0707 commented: “For me, big yin is the best but in truth all are good.”

Whilst @weareleeds4ever was relieved and added: “ I thought I had missed it Amy. I’ve tried to catch up on BBC iPlayer but now I know why I couldn’t find it! Great it’s on Friday.”

The This is the Life star, from Bishopbriggs near Glasgow, recently hosted a Q&A session with writers and stars, Ford Kiernan and Greg Hemphill.

Following the massive success of the live show held at the SSE Hydro last year, the pair have penned a new series which starts tonight.

TV favourites, Ronni Ancona and Kevin Whately, are rumoured to be two guest stars who will feature in episodes during the new series whilst a second live show has been announced, with tickets on sale from 10am this morning.
