So where are they all now?

Clare Grogan made her name in Gregory's Girl - but who were the other stars of the film and what's become of them?

DEE HEPBURN Having set the world alight, (well, Cumbernauld at any rate) with her scintillating football skills, pouting Dee turned her back on acting and went into ITV soap Crossroads instead. Then she jacked it in altogether and did the kids thing - she now works as a cosmetics advisor and saleswoman.

JOHN GORDON SINCLAIR Save for the lamentable sequel Gregory's Two Girls, made in 1999, JGS has had a fruitful acting career spanning three decades. Most recently he was seen in BBC Scotland comedy pilot Welcome to Strathmuir, and narrates the brilliant That Was The Team That Was series superbly. Other work includes Your Cheatin' Heart and Mad About Alice.

CHIC MURRAY Played the grumpy headmaster with typically measured humour. Chic is still remembered with great affection by the Scottish public, having died in 1985. Billy Connolly rates him as the greatest ever comedian. His other memorable roles included Casino Royale, and musical play You'll Never Walk Alone, in which he played Bill Shankly.

ALEX NORTON Played a patch-wearing schoolteacher alongside Jack D'Arcy's memorably 'tached and tracksuited PE teacher. Famously claims some of his best scenes were left on the cutting room floor, but still figured enough to be remembered. Vast CV since then, includes Taggart and Pirates of The Caribbean.
