A chef at one of Glasgow’s most popular restaurants met comedy hero Billy Connolly in the city centre.

The Big Yin has been spotted around the city on various occasions recently and Red Onion chef John Quigley managed to grab a snap with Scotland’s favourite comic.

Posting on social media, Chef Quigley wrote: “#bigyin #weeyin #sauchiehallstreet”.

The photo racked up just shy of 1,000 likes and plenty of fans of the eatery were quick to give compliments to the chef - and his new pal.

One jealous fan wrote: “Fabulous pic, so jealous.

“He’s my favourite xxx”.

Another added: “I’d be framing that one!”

One person commented: “Wow what a fantastic picture.”

A fourth added: “Fab picture of you both.”

We told previously how Connolly mingled with Celtic fans at Parkhead as he took in the Hoops’ 3-1 win over Hearts.
