Comic Con Scotland posted a video of HasselHoff on Twitter, with the star speaking in front of his hotel.

He said: "We're here at the Nira Caledonia, just kind of hanging out for a few days.

"So leave us alone - but then don't leave us alone, comedown and see us at the convention because it's going to be unbelievably fun."

It's not the first time "The Hoff" has visited the capital. He passed through Edinburgh in 2016 while taking part in the Gumball 3000 rally and appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2012.

WWE legend Brett "The Hitman" Hart is also due to show up at the convention.
