Singer Shirley Manson has blasted her fellow Scots for wearing too much fake tan.

The Garbage frontwoman asked US chat show host Craig Ferguson: “Have you noticed the alarming trend of fake tan that the Scots have suddenly got involved in?”.

“There’s a lot of ring marks, and a lot of orange face and white neck.”

“To be fair, it’s only the Protestant girls with the orange faces,” said Ferguson, who was born in Glasgow.

As Manson sat open-mouthed, the Late Late Show host quickly quipped: “The Catholic girls have the green faces and the Protestant girls have the orange faces.”

Manson, 45, is currently in Los Angeles, California, to record new material with Garbage.
