There’s a special guest on Glebe Street this week as Sanjeev Kohli swaps Craiglang for Auchenshoogle.
The Still Game star features in The Broons this weekend inside The Sunday Post.
I AM ACTUALLY MAKING A GUEST APPEARANCE IN THE BROONS… THIS IS NOT A DRILL….

He’s the latest Scottish celeb to feature in the strip, with the likes of Sir Andy Murray, Amy Macdonald and Nicola Sturgeon having all visited Scotland’s favourite family.
Earlier this month, Sanjeev told The Sunday Post that he was ‘genuinely chuffed’ to be starring in The Broons.
He said: “I can’t quite believe this is happening.
“I grew up reading The Sunday Post and because I’m mad for jokes I always went to the Fun Section and the comic strips. I loved both Oor Wullie and The Broons.
“Choosing one would be like picking one of my weans.
“The one thing about The Broons is that it’s a busy house, full of people, and we had that. It felt closer to home.
“There were three of us and I shared a bedroom with one, if not both, my brothers.”
The humour was something that always struck a chord with Sanjeev, who admits he was very shy as a child.
He added: “People who knew me from I was about five to 17 are really surprised that I do what I do now.
“There were always jokes round the dinner table and plenty of ribbing. I’ve always being quite scientific about comedy and when Twitter used to be just 140 characters, I used to hone my jokes to fit. I think that analytical way goes back to those one-liners from my childhood.
“Even now jokes I like have the same structure and the way they are set up probably goes back to reading those jokes in The Sunday Post.”
