KELLY Clarkson swooned over a photo of Sam Heughan wearing a kilt during an appearance on her talk-show.

The Scots star who is best known for his role as Highland Warrior Jamie Fraser in the time-travelling drama Outlander appeared on the Kelly Clarkson show on Monday night.

The duo enjoyed a drink together - as Heughan promoted The Sassenach Wild Scottish Gin, his new line of gins.

Appearing on the sofa alongside Clarkson, the star said: "All the botanicals are from Scotland, where I'm from.

"We've got toasted oats, blueberries, rhubarb, Scots pine, heather."

Adding: "We've been touring around the US, pouring people gin and tonics and having a damn good time."

But Clarkson also highlighted a photo of Heughan donning a kilt in New York, asking: “I mean, are you trying to pick up every woman in New York? Was that the goal?”

Asking the Scots star what he wears in his sporran, which she referred to as a “really fancy fanny pack”, Heughan explained: "It's a bit like the Tardis, I've got everything in there, bottles of gin..."

He added: "[I keep] a mobile phone, lip salve and anything else... crab apples maybe."
