The Hoff Checks In to Edinburgh


TV veteran David Hasselhoff has arrived in Edinburgh ahead of his appearance at an 80s convention this weekend.

The Baywatch star is set to appear at Comic Con Scotland, taking place on Saturday and Sunday at the EICC.

Other stars from the decade are scheduled to attend the convention, including cast members from films like ET, Gremlins and Ghostbusters and TV programmes Buck Rogers and The Incredible Hulk.



Hasselhoff will be joined by Kitt, the famous talking car from the Knight Rider series. Other 80s TV vehicles like the A-Team van will also be making an appearance.

Ahead of the event, ‘The Hoff’ spoke outside top Edinburgh boutique hotel Nira Caledonia in Stockbridge where he is staying and posted a video to his 188,000 followers on Instagram.

He said: “We’re here at the Nira Caledonia, just kind of hanging out for a few days.

“So leave us alone – but then don’t leave us alone, come down and see us at the convention because it’s going to be unbelievably fun.”
