STARS of two of Scotland's most iconic sketch shows are joining forces for a special Hogmanay show.

Greg Hemphill and Robert Florence have come together to bring the Queen of the New Year sketch show to our screens this New Year's Eve.

It will cover all the big talking points of 2021, from Scotland hosting the COP26 climate conference to wild swimming and much more.

The show will feature some of Scotland's best up and coming talent, including Barbara Rafferty, Clive Russell, Gayle Telfer Stevens, Louise McCarthy, John Gordon Sinclair and Juliet Cadzow.

It comes after Still Game stars Hemphill and Ford Kiernan fleetingly returned to screens for the first time in almost three years this month in a TV ad for Jack and Victor whisky.

The two pensioners were popularised in Still Game, which ran for nine series, the last of which was broadcast in 2019.

Queen of the New Year is part of a packed BBC Scotland schedule to bring in the bells this year.

For the first time, Edith Bowman takes Scotland up to the bells for Hogmanay 2021, joined by musical guests including Texas, Emeli Sandé and Talisk.

A special rendition of Auld Lang Syne will be performed by Talisk and Clare Hastings, a BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician winner from 2015.

A special episode of police comedy Scot Squad will also air featuring some famous guests and Des Clarke will host Breaking The Year while Amy Irons helms the Not Quite End Of Year Show – a mix of chat and music on the BBC Scotland channel.

The BBC will go live to Edinburgh Castle where a lone piper and the midnight gun will mark the New Year while fireworks from Stirling's Wallace Monument will be accompanied by a soundtrack of contemporary Scottish classics performed by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

The Hogmanay party on the radio kicks off with Grant Stott’s Hogmanay Vinyl Collective before handing over to Burnett for a live Get It On… Through The Bells.
