Following his decision to end the Bute House power-sharing deal with the Scottish Greens, Mr Yousaf faces a vote of no confidence at Holyrood.

The early favourite to succeed him is Kate Forbes, the MSP for Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch who was narrowly defeated by the First Minister in the last leadership contest.

Former leader and ex deputy First Minister John Swinney is seen as a potential unity candidate and has not ruled himself out of the running.

Health secretary Neil Gray, Mairi McAllan, and Jenny Gilruth have also been touted as potential names.
