The Scottish star appeared in full 1950s garb alongside Sunderland-born star Melanie Hill and some nostalgic props as part of a film shoot in Tynemouth, North Tyneside.

David To Star In United For BBC Two

United is based on the true story of Manchester United's legendary "Busby Babes", the youngest side ever to win the Football League, the 1958 Munich Air Crash that claimed eight of the their number and the extraordinary spirit of a city that rebuilt the team in the wake of the disaster.
