KEZIA Dugdale stunned TV personality Gary Tank Commander during an off-beat interview when she used strong language describe the policies of Scottish UKIP spokesman David Coburn.

The Scottish Labour leader fielded a series of questions from the star, played by comedy actor Greg McHugh, leaving viewers in no doubt of her feelings towards Mr Coburn.

The Herald:

“Everything he stands for is g*sh," she said. "He thinks Europe holds back the development of toasters.”

She also followed First Minister Nicola Sturgeon's lead in condemning American presidential candidate Donald Trump, saying: "The guy's an arse. It's that simple."
