STILL Game’s Jane McCarry, Sanjeev Kohli and Gavin Mitchell turned out to the Scottish premiere of Stan and Ollie – and ended up crying.

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house by the end of the brilliant movie about the comedy legends.

It’s really a must watch and the physical comedy is timeless. The incredible Steve Coogan and John C Reilly really brought the characters to life while Shirley Henderson and Nina Arianda were like a second double act.

Jane McCarry, who used to be a drama teacher before playing Isa in Still Game, said she has always loved the duo and even used to teach her students about them in secondary. She said: “In first year the first thing I would make the kids do would be to watch Laurel and Hardy. Most of them had never heard of them and would go ‘Oh no black and white films’. By the end of term they were all converted to big Laurel and Hardy Films.”

Dubai jaunt for singer Amy

AMY Macdonald managed to leave Dubai just as the Celtic team arrived for their big holiday.

Some might have thought it was all planned by the Rangers fan but she had to leave because her footballing man Richard Foster had work to do with his team St Johnstone.

A refreshed looking Amy loved her trip so much that she even jokingly suggested that Richard fly back on his own.

She ended up staying at the Waldorf Palm resort but told pals there had been some sort of mix up with hotels.

It’s possible the other ones were overbooked after stars from TOWIE, Made In Chelsea and Love Island all seemed to flock there in the last week.

Keeping star’s memory alive

STAN Laurel’s mother’s grave is about to become the centre of attention in 2019 - and his great granddaughter is planning a visit to Scotland to ensure his memory is kept alive.

Glasgow’s Ross Owen, a Laurel and Hardy superfan who advised on the feature film, told me at the Showcase in Baillieston that he’s been in regular touch with Cassidy Cook – Stan’s great granddaughter.

He told me: “Stan’s first ever stage performance was in Glasgow at the Panoptican and he used to live here when he was fifteen or sixteen.

“His mother Madge died when he was in Scotland and she’s buried in Cathcart cemetery and been there for years but they don’t have a headstone and it’s a bit unkempt. I was telling Cassidy this two weeks ago and she’s going to come over and we are going to put a headstone up and she’s going to do this properly. She’s coming to visit the Panopticon this year.”

I’ll keep you posted as to when that happens.
