MARTIN Compston has been spotted at a popular Glasgow bar and restaurant trying an unusual looking pizza as he takes a break from filming his upcoming documentary.

The Greenock-born actor was seen in the city with his filming partner Phil MacHugh as the pair took a short break from the production.

The new series for BBC Two and BBC iPlayer follows the Line of Duty actor as he returns to Scotland from his family home in Las Vegas.

Reuniting with his friend MacHugh, together they set off on an immersive and personal journey to showcase what makes modern Scotland tick, finding out who are the people and places shaping the future of the nation.

Glasgow Times:

MacHugh, a Gaelic language presenter, posted a picture with Compston to Twitter along with a pizza covered in skinny fries which is aptly titled the “Hangover 2”.

He tweeted: “Couldn’t come to #Glasgow and not tuck into the latest craze - The ‘Hangover 2’ pizza at @cransidekitchen

“A wee break from filming #ScottishFling with my G @martin_compston tonight before we’re back on the road again tomorrow … Where next?"

Despite the famous faces in the picture, the pizza was the real star, with commenters eager to try a dish with a Scottish twist.
