Gregor Fisher admits he feels too old for Rab C Nesbitt

Gregor Fisher has admitted that he thinks he may be too old to play Govan's favourite resident Rab C Nesbitt.

The 57-year-old returns to our screens this week with the tenth series of the long-running comedy.

Nesbitt returned in 2010 after an 11-year break with original cast members Fisher, Tony Roper, Elaine C Smith and Barbara Rafferty.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Fisher said: "I'm 57 and Rab's a bit older, he's nearly 60.

"When we go on to the set there's a picture of Rab and Mary on their wedding day and my God, do we look young in it.

"We've been doing this for nearly 25 years though. I admit it's getting more difficult for me to do certain things."

He added: "Standing around on street corners in a string vest in certain parts of Glasgow isn't as easy or appealing as it use to be."

However, the actor admitted that it was good to be in work, saying: "I have a lot of chums just now who haven't worked for a long time.

"The government have scrapped the Film Council and the BBC budgets are getting smaller and smaller. ITV have been in a state too, so yes, it's good to get work.

"I never need to be persuaded to do anything. You have to count your blessings one by one. And apart from anything else, I really enjoy doing it."
