Using the hashtag #clearoot, Bridges also posted a picture on Twitter of a stack of notebooks containing some of his comedy writing written over the last two decades.

He captioned the image: “Over 17 years of jokes. Some that made it and some that went off the rails. Some that will make it out one day... #clearoot.”

During the Euros 2020 Scotland v Czech Republic game on Monday, Bridges posted a picture of himself wearing a fitted Scotland top signed by Paul McStay, as he joked the former star was a "medium" size.
