 David Tennant joins a host of Scottish stars featured in a new episode of The Simpsons.

The episode from season 35 of the smash-hit American animated sitcom will see Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie cross the Atlantic to visit Scotland.

Called “AE Bonny Romance”, the show will feature a storyline with Groundskeeper Willie.

The Simpson family follows Willie to Scotland amid concerns that he has been “kidnapped”, but finds that it was all a ruse to have them attend his wedding to a girl named Maisie.

Maisie is voiced by the Karen Gillan.

The actress is joined by David Tennant and Paul Higgins and Scottish band Belle and Sebastian have also been immortalised as Simpsons characters for the episode.

The episode is the eighth in the 35th series of The Simpsons. It aired in the US on December 3 and is due to be shown in the UK in the new year.
