  • Phyllis Logan, outside Phelp’s Butchers on Causeyside Street.
  • David Tennant, close to his former school Paisley Grammar School on Glasgow Road.

I'm honoured to be included in the Buddie Walk of Fame and thanks to everyone who voted for me. I'm proud to have attended Paisley Grammar and I'm delighted that my star is being unveiled outside my old school.
