‘Only An Excuse’ in Blantyre

The BBC’s Sports Comedy Show, “Only and Excuse” were filming in Blantyre last week!

TV crews were in the University of the West of Scotland in the Technology Park in High Blantyre, with their base cabins set up nearby in the Jock Stein Centre in Hillhouse.

Scenes were filmed in the University as part of a Hogmanay Special to be screened next month.

Professor Craig Mahoney, principal and vice-chancellor of UWS, added: “We were delighted to welcome the cast and crew of Only an Excuse to our Lanarkshire campus to shoot scenes for the upcoming Hogmanay programme. It is fantastic to see such a buzz around the university and it is testament to the campus’ flexible and modern facilities that it has been chosen to be part of what is an incredibly popular Scottish sketch show. We look forward to watching the episode to see our amazing campus in action.”

We’re not quite sure how ‘Frankie boy’ being let loose in a University campus is going to pan out but will be tuned in to see!

The show goes out on BBC1 on Tuesday, 31st December 2019.
