A CUMBERNAULD schoolgirl had a brush with fame last week when she visited Stirling Castle - only to encounter a well-known face from the BBC!

Emma Cheyne who attends Baird Memorial Primary School had been taken to the historic attraction by mum Samantha - only to encounter sports commentator and Strictly Come Dancing winner Chris Hollins who was filming The Great British Weather Show!

Samantha said that Chris couldn’t have been nicer. “He came over to chat with us,have his photo taken and signed page One of his script for Emma - he was a perfect gent!” she said.
