THE FACES OF STILL GAME stars have been immortalised in shortbread thanks to an enthusiastic fan and baker.


Dave McPake from Stirling, posted a photo of Jack and Victor shortbread faces on his twitter account yesterday morning.


The photo shows the faces of Jack Jarvis, played by Ford Kiernan and Victor McDade, played by Greg Hemphill, on shortbread models positioned in front of trays of shortbread in Campbell’s bakery in Crieff where the 30-year old works.

The uncanny likeness was picked up on by twitter users who commented and re-tweeted the photo.


One user said: “These are fantastic!”


Another of the comments read: “Nice one. I thought at first it was biscuits, but on reflection Jim Murphy takes that.”


One tweet simply read: “lol.”
