IT’S never too early to learn something new like is Still Game returning to our TV screens and who won big at the Bafta Scotland Awards?

Is Still Game making its TV comeback?

On the red carpet at the Bafta Scotland Awards in Glasgow Still Game stars Ford Kiernan and Greg Hemphill have dropped the biggest hints yet that the show will be making a TV comeback.

The two comics have suggested they will back making the much-loved show next year - nine years after Jack and Victor’s final on-screen appearances.

Kiernan and Hemphill had a much-publicised rift but put their differences behind them to reunite the cast of Still Game for a run at the SSE Hydro last year, playing to 210,000 fans over 21 nights.

After months of site visits, building and trialling, people from across the world are invited to download and uncover Roman forts, journey back to the Victorian era or excavate long-lost Pictish settlements as part of the immersive game.
