Most of us were on the edge of our seats on Wednesday afternoon as we eagerly awaited the latest lockdown rules being announced by Scotland’s First Minister.
But as we all concentrated on Nicola Sturgeon as she laid out the tough new restrictions being introduced across the country for the next two weeks, one eagle-eyed Scots megastar noticed something else entirely.
For as he watched the live Scottish Government briefing along with the rest of us to find out our fate for the near future, singer Lewis Capaldi spotted the uncanny resemblance one SNP MP has to Hollywood actor Timothee Chalamet.
Zooming in on Scotland’s Minister for Rural Affairs Mairi Gougeon, Lewis said: “Timothee Chalamet MSP.”
Wer’re sure the MSP for Angus North and Mearns will take the comments as a compliment, given Chalamet’s heart-throb status.
The Call Me By Your Name and Little Women star, 24, is hot property in the acting world, with upcoming roles in Find Me, Dune and The French Dispatch.
Popstar Lewis is well known for his hilarious antics on social media and never fails to entertain fans with his exploits.
So it’s nice to see him keeping spirits up during troubled times.
Today it was announced that Pubs and bars in the central belt will be forced to close under the new rules.
Further restrictions on social life will be imposed across the country as of this Friday at 6pm for at least 16 days as the Scottish Government attempts to put a “brake” on the spread of coronavirus.
But five health board areas – Greater Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Ayrshire and Arran, Forth Valley, and Lothian – will face the toughest regulations.
All licensed premises in those central belt areas will be closed from Friday up to and including Sunday, October 25.
Pubs and restaurants elsewhere in Scotland can continue selling food and non-alcoholic drinks indoors up to 6pm, while outdoor alcohol sales will be allowed until 10pm.
Cafes and restaurants without an alcohol license will be allowed to stay open until 6pm across the country.
Hotels and B&BS will also be able to stay open, but hotel bars will not be able to serve alcohol.
