Two Doors Down actors are among the star-studded line-up of the STV Hogmanay show.

Alex Norton and Graeme Stevely aka Grado will don their gladrags and pop some bubbly to celebrate some of their favourite moments of the year.

Bringing in the Bells will be filmed at Mar Hall in Bishopton, Dundas Castle in South Queensferry and Kennox House in Ayrshire and see the guests reminisce on everything that's happened in 2023 from TV moments, celebrity gossip, sporting moments and light-hearted news stories. 

Known for his role as Eric Baird in Two Doors Down, Alex will be joined by Blythe Duff, his co-star in the hit detective show Taggart.

He said: "Where has this year gone?! I’m looking forward to reuniting with my old Taggart pal, Blythe, to take stock of it all and share a classic Hogmanay get-together.

"And in a posh country house as well! I have my suspicions it might be a slightly more glamorous Hogmanay than the one Eric, Beth and co will be having in Latimer Crescent…"

Blythe added: “There’s been a… knees-up! What better way to end the year than getting together with wonderful Alex – my friend of 22 years – to look back over 2023 and have a giggle at some of the year’s most interesting and entertaining moments?"

Meanwhile, Grado - who plays Alan in the BBC sitcom - will sit alongside A Place in the Sun presenter Jean Johansson to bring in the bells with viewers.

Jean said: “Another year, another chance to get together with one of the funniest men in showbiz to have a glass of champers and chat through all the big moments of the past 12 months.

“I couldn’t think of anyone better than Grado to be my first foot – let’s just hope he brings good luck!”

Completing the guest list are STV presenters Sean Batty and Laura Boyd, Line of Duty star Martin Compston and his Restless Natives podcast co-host, journalist and broadcaster Gordon Smart.

Celtic band The Laurettes close the show with their version of Auld Lang Syne as the clock strikes midnight.

Gordon said: “Hogmanay is such a special time of year for Scotland and I’ve got the added bonus of spending it with a National Treasure… Sean Batty.

"But I’ll mainly be on screen with my partner-in-crime on the Restless Natives podcast, Martin Compston.

“We’re making a return to Mar Hall for filming – the same venue where Martin got married – so it’ll be a treat to do something in those salubrious surroundings again.

"The only difference is this time we’ll both remember it…”
