SAM Heughan branded Mhairi Black an inspiration following her powerful speech in parliament.

The Outlander star, 31, backed the SNP MP online after she spoke about Twitter trolls during a debate on misogyny - and used the c-word for the first time in Westminster.

And Sam threw his support behind her as he shared a clip of Mhairi in parliament.

He wrote: “Brave and intelligent yet again @MhairiBlack is an inspiration.”

He also spoke out about International Women's Day and body image in a separate tweet, sharing a love letter for women's bodies.
