Hunky Dougray among Scottish stars celebrating Burns Night

27 JANUARY 2009
Some of Scotland's best known faces celebrated their Scottish heritage this week by gathering for a traditional Burns Night celebration.

This year marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of 18th-century Scottish poet Robert Burns, and Fife-born Dougray Scott led stars marking the event with a special meal in a Belgravia restaurant.

He was joined by fellow countrymen David Couthard, Dragon's Den star Duncan Bannatyne, and GMTV favourite Lorraine Kelly - accessorising for the occasion with a tartan print handbag - for the celebration, which is traditionally held on or near the bard's January 25 birthday.

On the menu for Monday's gathering, at which F1 champion Jackie Stewart received a Great Scot award, was Scottish wild salmon, fillet of beef, and - an essential element in any Burns Night feast - haggis.
