Celebrity chef Marco Pierre White is to launch his first Glasgow restaurant.

The TV cook, famous for his no-nonsense approach, has confirmed he will open at Hotel Indigo in Waterloo Street in late August.

Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill will offer the chef's own brand of "affordable glamour".

He said: "Glasgow has a vibrant dining scene and I look forward to offering Glaswegians a taste of something a little bit different.

"My recipe for affordable glamour is all about serving quality food at affordable prices. It isn't about Michelin standard food, which for most is experienced as a one-off or for a very special occasion.

"I truly hope the restaurant will be a place for restaurant goers to return again and again."
