IT looks like the Trainspotting gang have brushed up their act for the film sequel after Renton and Sick Boy were spotted in suits.

Stars Ewan McGregor and Jonny Lee Miller were spotted filming scenes for the much-awaited Trainspotting 2 yesterday.

Directer Danny Boyle could be seen talking to the pair between takes, as they were filmed walking in and out of the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh.
