The A-list endorsement was revealed today in an exclusive in the Sunday Mail, which also became the first national newspaper ever to throw its weight behind a Green vote.

Sam Heughan said:“Green ideas are on the move so it would be great to see a Green MEP elected for Scotland to stand up for our place in Europe, and to help turn the climate crisis into an opportunity for a fairer society too.”

Patrick Harvie MSP, co-convenor of the Scottish Greens, said:“Sam’s a fantastic ambassador for Scotland and has a long record of standing up for our natural environment.

“His backing – adding to the Green’s first ever endorsement from a national Scottish newspaper – shows that the Green movement is changing the face of politics and that we now have a huge opportunity to elect Maggie Chapman as Scotland’s first ever Green MEP on 23 May.”
