She said: "I had to say it in the movie and I was like 'how do I say this place that I'm in?'.

"It looks like 'Edin-burg' but you can't say 'Edin-burg'.

"So I was like 'Edin-brah', and that's where I landed."

Vanessa went on to talk about her run-in with a local, who told her that her coat looked like she was walking around in a sleeping bag, and attempting again the Scottish accent, causing the hosts and studio audience to burst out laughing.

She said: "A girl literally walks by me in Edin-brah and was like 'she's wearing a sleeping bag'."
