The final ever episode of much-loved comedy Still Game will be broadcast next week when its ninth series comes to an end.

Writers, creators and stars of the show, Ford Kiernan and Greg Hemphill, announced last year that this series would be the last, with plans to put the characters into comedy retirement.

And fans of the show are now being asked to vote for their favourite episode of all time.

Ten of the most-watched episodes from series 1-8 of Still Game (2002-2018) have been selected and viewers can vote for their No.1.

The episode which tops the poll will be announced on The Nine on Thursday, March 28 and will be screened the following evening on Friday, March 29 at 10.30pm on the BBC Scotland TV channel.

Voting is now open and closes on Wednesday, March 27 at 5pm.
