Hollywood superstar George Clooney has helped launch a new fundraising campaign to feed thousands of homeless people on Christmas Day.

The actor visited Edinburgh recently after accepting an invitation from the owner of sandwich shop, Social Bite, where he recorded a video message pledging the first £5 for the appeal.

He met staff who were once homeless but now have jobs in the chain of shops which donates all its profits to charity.

The campaign also features a message of support from Scotland's First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, with other pledges coming from Olympian Sir Chris Hoy, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Scotland football manager Gordon Strachan.
