The popular fly on the wall documentary featuring Robert 'Rab' Nesbitt and his family and friends returns to our screens this week (BBC2 9.30pm, English Subtitled). However the return of this popular philosopher has not been welcomed by everyone.

Many Scots are angry about the rumoured content of the new series and are worried it may present the residents of Govan in a bad light. In last year's Christmas special for example Mary and Ella had started their own cleaning business instead of claiming social, a theme that is sent to continue in the new series.

Local resident Ally McMoist said something largely incomprehensible but general gist was that working is just not the done thing in Govan. Rab had also given up the drink and Gash had a successful career, again just not representative of life in Govan.

A facebook campaign is to be set up as soon as someone sobers up for long enough to get online to challenge the documentary makers to find a more traditional Govan family to feature in future programmes.

Mr Nesbitt was unavailable for comment.
