Doctor Who and Harry Potter actor David Tennant has claimed a tree on the east side of The Falkirk Stadium doubles as the Bairns’ corporate box.
The Scottish actor, hosting the satirical BBC1 quiz show Have I Got News For You asked a question based on the recent league match between Ray McKinnon’s side and Ayr United.
He asked: “To get round stadium ban, a Scottish football fan what?”
The question, posed to regular team captains Paul Merton and Ian Hislop plus guests Reginald D. Hunter and Lucy Prebble, referred to a visiting supporter who climbed a tree at the east side of Westfield after allegedly being removed from the away end, where he watched the remainder of the Honest Men’s 1-0 win.
Tennant explained: “This is the match between Falkirk and Ayr United, watched by one fan from the top of a tree, or as it’s known in Falkirk, the corporate box.”
The programme was shown on November 9.
