Last week, it was announced that Heughan is honoured by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

The 42-year-old, who has said in the past that moving to Edinburgh as a teenager shaped him into the person he is today, will be awarded an honorary degree by the Conservatoire on July 7.

The Balmaclellan-born star will be joined by Ncuti Gatwa, the former Boroughmuir High School pupil who has just been named as the BBC’s next timelord in Doctor Who, alongside musician Marin Alsop and composer Errollyn Wallen.

Heughan graduated from the Conservatoire as part of the class of 2003.
