SCOTS comic Janey Godley has revealed what Nicola Sturgeon plans to do next after she announced plans to step down as First Minister.

The SNP leader told a press conference on Wednesday that she would be quitting the role at the head of the Scottish Government after more than eight years, saying the decision had come after a deep and long-term assessment of her resilience.

The news has sparked frantic speculation about who could replace her, as well as what Sturgeon will do next.

To answer the question, Janey Godley has produced one of her classic voiceovers of the First Minister – which became a staple during the pandemic.

“People have been saying, what are you going to do with your spare time now Nicola,” Godley-Sturgeon said.

“Well I’ll tell you what I’m going to do … I have decided to do Caravanning with Nicola Sturgeon. It’ll be brilliant. We’ll hit all the high spots, Largs, Arbroath.

“I love a caravan. It’s a two berth, sleeps nine.

“And I’m going to take up budgieing. I don’t like dugs so I’m going to start breeding budgies. Who knew that was a thing.”

But if that doesn’t work, Sturgeon’s plans reportedly involve a Zumba group …

“At the end of the day, there’s lots for me to be getting on with,” she says, before finishing with the famous catchphrase: “Frank, get the door!”

Whether those are really Sturgeon’s plans for retirement is another question.

But the First Minister did say of Godley’s voiceovers in 2020: “She must have an insight into what I was really thinking.”
