It’s hard to underestimate just how popular Still Game is north of the border. Not that many sitcoms perform sell-out shows in 13,000 seat arenas, or attract viewing figures meaning that nearly 60% of the country’s population watch it.

In the first episode of this eighth series, Jack and Victor (Ford Kirenan and Greg Hemphill) are horrified when they and the other locals of The Clansman are turfed out by landlord Boabby (Gavin Mitchell) as he tries to make the pub more fashionable.

Still Game is on BBC One at 21.30.
