"Good morning from Edinburgh,” he said, before panning the city skyline and singing its praises.

"Well, this place, I mean, why don’t I live here? Because it’s too far away and cold but it is amazing, it’s beautiful.”

He added that he had been for an “amazing” curry at Mother India, in Infirmary Street, last night – a restaurant which he “highly recommends”.
