We can all relate to the painstaking process of trying to find a part-time job. However, we DEFINITELY don’t all come out with the same results as this guy!

Christopher Kellie was 16-years-old when his mum drove him to their local McDonald's to drop in his CV. Instead, he left with the beginnings of a prosperous modelling career.

The 21-year-old Glaswegian explained to the Daily Record how applying for a job in the fast-food chain led to his new life.

“I had just turned 16 and my mum told me it was time to get a part-time job. She drove me to McDonald’s in Rutherglen and I handed in my CV.

“I had just got back in her car when this crazy woman threw herself in front of it and started shouting at her to stop. I rolled down the window and she asked if I would like to be a model.”

It turned out that the “crazy woman” was none other than the co-owner of the modelling agency, Colours Agency, Alison Bruce.

Christopher admitted that it took him a while to warm to the idea of calling Ms Bruce for an appointment as he thought he’d “get a slagging” from his friends but they actually loved the idea.

Mr Kellie has since become one of the nation’s top male models, having worked for brands such as House of Fraser and Barbour.

And it is certainly a good thing that the modelling worked out well for him because, as Christopher said, he “never heard back from McDonald’s.” 



This sounds just too sore!

In an interview with Howard Stern this week, Channing Tatum discussed an accident that happened on set while he was filming The Eagle in Scotland in 2011.

The Magic Mike XXL star explained how his penis was left “shrivelled” and “burnt” after a crew member had given him a bottle of boiling water to pour down his pants… excuse us, what?

Well, it makes more sense when you realise that the 35-year-old was filming a period piece in the freezing weather.

Channing explained, “So this poor guy, I gotta be honest… He had been, for 13 hours, running up a hill to boil a huge bottle of water fill it half-full with like actual kettle water, run back down the hill and then like put the river water and then come over to me just to keep me warm all day.”

Unfortunately, one of the times that the father of one was pouring the warm water down his pants, the runner had forgotten to put the cold water in too.

“I started hyperventilating and screaming and jumping back into the river, because it was a hypothermic river and we had wet suits on, which was the worst part about it,” he explained.

The Foxcatcher star described how he was put in an ambulance and how the medic made him feel better by saying, “I know this is no consolation now mate but it’s a good thing it hurts otherwise you’ve got nerve damage.”

After the incident Mr Tatum explained how he had to have his manhood wrapped in bandages for days.

But thankfully for all us Magic Mike fans, and of course for Channing himself, there was no permanent damage and he was able to resume his busy grinding and thrusting schedule in no time. 



Paddy Power has showcased its rather hysterical (sorry, Scotland) billboard taunting Scottish fans just in time for their Euro qualifier, which takes place in Dublin tomorrow.

The billboard reads: “You may take our points, but at least we have our freedom,” over a ferocious picture of William Wallace’s painted face.

The betting company decided to play on last year’s referendum, where Scotland voted against independence and instead voted to stay within the United Kingdom.

The billboard is the second stunt this week: its Upper Baggot Street (beside the Aviva) was also engulfed in bubble wrap ahead of the England Vs Ireland soccer match to make it “yob proof”. 




If you were looking for an example of what NOT to tweet, we’ve got you covered.

Geordie Shore star Holly Hagan obviously had a pretty wild night out in Scotland, so much so that she missed her flight because she was so drunk. Not only this, but she also wet the bed, and told everyone about it on Twitter:

No Holly. This is not the type of thing you should be tweeting! But she clearly disagrees as when someone replied to the tweet telling her it wasn’t a good thing, she had this to say:

Yikes! Perhaps you should take their advice on board Holly, and maybe lay off the booze for a while!

The reality star wasn’t having a very good day on Twitter in general, as when she posted a revealing picture of herself on a night out, someone told her to “Put ‘em away, no wonder some girls get attacked on nights out”. And while her other tweets have left us speechless, we have to agree with her on this matter, as she replied:

Well, one good tweet out of three is better than none we suppose! Just stick to the protein shakes from now on Holly, please?!




You better appreciate your redhead friends guys, because they could be the last redheads around!

Apparently scientists are concerned that the increased sunlight in Scotland will have an effect on the red head gene in their population, as the gene is said to be a revolutionary response to their gloomy weather.

Dr. Alistair Moffat, who works at a genetic testing company called ScotlandsDNA said:

“We think red hair in Scotland, Ireland and the north of England is adaptation to the climate. We do not get enough sun and have to get all the vitamin D we can.

“If it was to get less cloudy and there was more sun, there would be fewer people carrying the gene.”

Well, there goes future redhead conventions anyway. We’re devastated!
