Hollywood superstar Gerard Butler surprised staff at an East Dunbartonshire coffee shop.

The Paisley-born actor popped into Grace & Favour on Thursday, with the Bearsden cafe’s staff branding him “dish of the day” on Instagram.

In December last year, Butler gave fans a taste of Scotland’s stunning scenery in an Instagram video.

Showing off a beautiful loch, he said: “Scotland. Ach, it’s good to be home.”

Butler, who turns 50 on Wednesday, recently appeared on the big screen in Angel Has Fallen.

The film is packed with physically gruelling action scenes – with Butler saying he is unsure how long he can keep putting his body on the line.

Speaking at the film’s premiere in Los Angeles in August, he said: “I don’t know, I’m pretty tough but I’ve also put my body through it.

“Maybe there’s new directions, new avenues but I love, I love making action movies and I love this one especially.

“We never knew we were going to make it past the first film and now we’re on the third and I think they’re getting better. This movie, I’m so proud of it.

“And this movie works on so many more levels than the other ones have worked, so yeah, I think it’s pretty kick ass.”

Angel Has Fallen is the third in a trilogy, following on from 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen and 2016’s London Has Fallen.
