Only An Excuse? 2016
Judy Murray serves up ace cameo
Renowned tennis coach Judy Murray is game for a laugh when she joins the Only An Excuse? team. Judy finds herself face-to-face with one of the best known comic characters from the iconic BBC Scotland comedy show...
Judy has a cameo in a sketch which features Frank 'Macca' McAvennie - as played by Jonathan Watson - during her drive to get more people involved in the sport at grassroots level. Jonathan's portrayal of the former Celtic, West Ham and Scotland footballing legend has been a traditional highlight of the show.
Watson is delighted that Judy decided to play ball when the Only An Excuse? team approached her with the offer of a part in the hit show.
He said: "Judy said yes right away when we asked if she'd like to appear because she's such a fan of the show. She was great fun to work with and I'm sure the audience will enjoy seeing how she gets on with Macca."
Judy says: "I've been watching Only An Excuse? for years. It's one of the must-see shows at Hogmanay so I jumped at the chance to have a part in it. It was so much fun joining up with the team that produces the show and of course bantering with Macca."
