We want you to help us take the 'selfie' to a new place by getting the family matriarch involved.

Glasgow is rightly proud of its grannies who work hard throughout the year to make sure everyone in the family is looked after - and we think it's time you showed off yer mammy's mammy.

The city also boasts some famous grannies including singer Lulu, whose son Jordan - to hairdresser John Frieda - has two kids Isabella and Teddy; TV broadcaster Viv Lumsden, who has two grand-daughters; actress Phyllida Law who is grandmother to the children of her acting daughters, Emma and Sophie Thompson, and River City star Barbara Rafferty, well perhaps we are cheating here but she does play Granny Mainland in the CBeebies TV series, Katie Morag

So get your granny to pout up for a selfie, send us the picture with your granny's name, your name and where you're from, and we'll publish the best.

You can tweet your picture to @theeveningtimes using the hashtag #etgrannyselfie
