KYLIE Minogie might have celebrated her fiftieth birthday in London, but Jason Donovan spent his birthday weekend in Scotland - in a kilt. 
The Neighbours heartthrob decided to fly up from London to Glasgow to perform at a charity bash. 
The Too Many Broken Hearts hitmaker turned fifty on Friday and was a guest at Tartan and Tiaras at the city’s Doubletree Hilton the following day. 
Having already celebrated his former Neighbours co star Kylie’s much lauded fiftieth in London last weekend he was more than happy to have a change of scenery. 
For the occasion he was even given a kilt to wear by Heart radio drivetime presenter Paul Harper who had the pleasure of dressing him on the night. 
Paul said: “Jason said he loved celebrating his fiftieth birthday weekend with Scottish fans. I gave him a kilt to wear and he wasn't sure at first how to wear it. It told him I’d help him get dressed. I guess it’s every girl’s dream to dress Jason Donovan and I had the pleasure of doing exactly that. He asked me if he should wear underwear with it and I told him he always should if the kilt is hired - which it was.”
On the night Jason was met by hundreds of screams as he teased: “Does anyone want to see what I have under my kilt?”
He also sang a clutch of hits including Especially For You. 
And although Kylie wasn’t there he informed the crowd that his backing singer was called Kelly. 
The event now in its 10th year, raised money for Calum's Cabin, Home-Start Renfrewshire and Inverclyde and DEBRA.

Excerpts of this story have now appeared in the Daily Record

ED Sheeran met up with two Scots sick kids who just made it out of hospital in time to see him at his Hampden gig.
The Ivor Novello Award winning singer asked to meet the children after being told about their illness by charity worker Les Hoey MBE and his Dreammaker Foundation.  

He insisted they come backstage to meet him in the bowels of Hampden Stadium during his run of three gigs here.
Sara Millar, 14, from Glasgow was diagnosed with non Hodgkins Lymphoma in November and still has seventeen weeks left of chemo. She has been seriously ill with the disease and her visit to see Ed was her first night out in six months. 

Sara said: “Ed was so down to earth and more like a normal guy than a celebrity. I was so excited to meet him and we walked down to his dressing room and he came up and got a picture with me and signed an autograph. He also signed a tshirt for one of my friends Molly who couldn’t make it because she had to go back to hospital. He asked about my time in hospital too and was just so nice.”

Addison Hornal, 8, from Falkirk told her mum that meeting Ed was better than meeting Santa Claus.
Addison who suffers from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia has been in hospital for seventy days since November and was very sick in the run up to the concert.
Mum Pamela said: “Addison has just started eating properly again and was delighted to meet Ed. He kissed her on the cheek and asked her for a hug. He’s amazing and behaves like a normal guy. It was wonderful he made time to see the children.”
Les Hoey MBE added: “Ed took his time with our Dreammaker kids and really helped them to feel better after such a tough time.”
