The song was written by US actress Mary Steenburgen who is best known for her roles in Elf, Step Brothers, Philadelphia and The Proposal.

She told a US publication that director Tom Harper needed a song for the film which expressed everything the character had went through.

She brought on co-writers Caitlyn Smith and Kate York, and Glasgow (No Place like Home) was born.

She said: "The song poured out of us.

"It would be titled after the character’s home town in the film: “Glasgow (No Place Like Home).

"The connection of acting and songwriting is that you’re telling stories.

"I can play characters that I could never play in a movie."
