HOLLYWOOD star Martin Compston has become the butt of online jokes after sharing an image of his very Scottish recycling bin.
The actor intended to take a swipe at the Scottish Tories by sharing a picture of one of their election leaflets in his bin.
But followers were far more interested in the contents of the bin. Rather than evidence of celebrity-style alkaline, M Plan or 5-Factor diets, Compston’s bin is full of Irn Bru bottles and chip packets.
The 32-year-old Line of Duty star referred to a letter from Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson, telling his Twitter followers: “Junk mail can be annoying but it’s important to recycle.”
A photograph of the leaflet placed in the bin also reveals at the top two empty two-litre Irn Bru bottles, an empty two-litre Coke bottles, and two empty boxes of M&S chips.
Sharon wrote: “Good Scottish diet of Irn Bru and chips there.”
Kevin Miller commented: “That’s possibly the most Scottish bin I’ve ever seen. Chips and Irn-bru.”
Sparkle responded: “Irn Bru and chips? We’re so Scottish.”
Dave Graham commented: “You need to cut down on the chips and fizzy juice fella.”
Whilst Supertim added: “That’s as Scottish a recycle bin as you would find.”
