CONFUSED residents could have been forgiven for thinking they were seeing things recently. That's because a host of A-list celebrities - including a former Dr Who star and a glamorous blonde Bond girl - descended on Scotstoun as part of an exciting new movie project which is due to hit our screens next year.

They were followed by a number of other film crew staff, cameramen, and behind the scenes workers from the BBC who were all in town to shoot scenes for the new flick from the makers of hit TV show Outnumbered.

Former Dr Who David Tenant, Hollywood star Rosamund Pike are both signed up to star in the new movie - called What We Did On Our Holiday and have been spotted on location.

Last week Dan Winch, the film's producer, told the Post they had chosen to film in the area due to its unique visual impact.

He said: "What I think is good about that area is the variety of architecture. You can go from one street to the next and imagine you're in a different city. It doesn't necessarily tie you to Glasgow.

"We filmed streets in a bit more of an urban setting we were looking for somewhere which looks as if it's in the south of England. That's why we came to that part of town because the architecture is quite hard to pin point where it's from.

"Unless you're living in the street or are round the corner from the street you probably wouldn't know you weren't in London.

"We searched high and low for a house that felt like it was in the right part of Scotland.

"We'll be at this location for another couple of weeks. We are at a private house that appears in the film.

"We went up to a few options, we saw many different houses all offering different things but we settled on this one." Well-known comedian Billy Connolly is also involved in the project which follows the story of couple who take their three children on a family break to Scotland whilst going through their own relationship difficulties.

Dan added: "It starts in London it's a family going to visit the other half of the family up in Scotland. We follow the journey from London with all the things we can relate to when going on a family holiday, packing up the car, and 'are we nearly there yet?' with kids in the car that type of thing.

"We are filming for the next five weeks. One of our biggest challenges is working with the restrictions of working with children, especially when they're the driving factor behind the story.

"It's geared round them. Everybody in Scotland has been so welcoming, we've had terrific support. We couldn't have completed the film if we hadn't had the support."
