Re­turn to Scot­tish TV for Craig Fer­gu­son

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

For­mer US talk show host Craig Fer­gu­son is to re­turn to Scot­tish TV for the first time in 25 years with an ap­pear­ance in Still Game.

The Glas­gow-born co­me­dian pre­sented the Late Late Show for more than a decade, be­com­ing one of the high­est paid hosts in the States.

He con­tin­ues to present US game shows but said he is de­lighted to re­turn to Scot­land for an ap­pear­ance in one of his favourite pro­grammes, the lat­est se­ries of which started film­ing last week.

Fer­gu­son said: “My am­bi­tions are more about do­ing stuff that’s fun so my first tele­vi­sion work in Scot­land in 25 years is later this year and it’s be­cause Ford (Kier­nan) and Greg (Hem­phill) sent me a script for Still Game, and I’m go­ing to do an episode be­cause it’s just hi­lar­i­ous.”

Be­fore mov­ing to the US, Fer­gu­son ap­peared in Bri­tish shows such as One Foot In The Grave in the 1990s.

Craig Fer­gu­son will ap­pear in Still Game.
