First Pictures Of Billy Connolly On The What We Did On Our Holiday Set

Blair Drummond Safari Park near Stirling have released some photos of Billy Connolly and director Andy Hamilton on the set of What We Did On Our Holiday. Billy filmed scenes at the wildlife park on Friday along with co-star Annette Crosbie. 

What We Did On Our Holiday stars David Tennant and Rosamund Pike as Doug and Abi McLeod, a London-based couple going through a difficult divorce. However, they decide to put their differences aside temporarily aside to travel back to Doug's native Scotland to celebrate the 75th birthday of Doug's father Gordy, played by Billy Connolly. However, an unexpected turn of events along the way involving the couple's three children causes chaos and further tensions to rise to the surface. The comedy marks the directorial debut of Outnumbered creators Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin and is sure to be as touching and hilarious as the BBC sitcom. The film also stars Ben Miller as Doug's brother Gavin, with Amelia Bullmore, Celia Imrie and young stars Harriet Turnbull, Bobby Smalldridge and Emilia Jones.

What We Did On Our Holiday is currently shooting on location in Scotland and is scheduled for release in 2014. It is produced by David M Thompson along with Dan Winch in his first producer role. It is a BBC Films and Origin Pictures production in association with Ingenious Media, LipSync and Jim Eyre.
