Fans of Sir Billy Connolly are happy after a rare picture of him has been shared after a trip to Glasgow.

The star moved to the US 30 years ago but came back to Scotland last week.

Comedian Billy visited the Mediterraneo Ristorante and Champagne Bar, where staff grabbed a pic with him to commemorate the occasion.

They captioned it: “Serving a Glasgow Legend! Billy Connolly at #Mediterraneo.”

Fans were quick to reply with their happiness: “The Only man on the planet that has reduced me to tears of abject laughter multiple dozens of times over the years. Gotta love Billy.”
