Rangers fan TV host Jean Johansson has been nominated for a BAFTA with British viewers being asked to decide their favourite “Scot on screen”.
Johansson is one of six nominees for the British Academy of Film and Television Awards Scotland Audience Award which celebrates the nation’s favourite Scottish TV personality of the year in partnership with Screen Scotland.
Jean – who is never slow to nail his colours to the mast – has been nominated for her role in the ever-popular Channel 4 show A Place in the Sun.
The popular TV personality – who also works with the BBC on Animal Park and the One Show as well as Channel Five’s Is it a Con? – is up against some of the biggest Scottish names on screen for the award.
These include David Carlyle from It’s A Sin, Lawrence Chaney in RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, Martin Compston in Line of Duty, Kelly Macdonald in Line of Duty, and David Tennant in Des.
The award winner is voted for by the British public and you can place a vote for Jean HERE with the deadline 5pm on November 4th 2021.
TV host Jean Johansson always quick to talk up Rangers
Anyone on Twitter will be well aware of Johansson’s passion for the bears and the Scottish presenter is always one to sing the praises of Steven Gerrard’s side.
Recently, Johansson made the news for mentioning the Ibrox side in an episode of the very show which she has been nominated for an award.
Jean highlighted a short clip where she exchanged some football banter with a guest on the TV show, where participants aim to buy a new home in sunny locations.
Wee bit of footy bants with Clement today. Glad you all enjoyed the episode 💙 pic.twitter.com/OMShXMS4pT

The Rangers connection doesn’t end there either with Johansson’s second name coming from her marriage to ex-Gers striker Jonatan.
Ex-Finnish international Johansson played for Rangers between 1997 and 2000 and loved life in Scotland so much he tends to stick around.
We wish Jean all the best in her quest to win a BAFTA and hopefully the popular host is celebrating a trophy of her own come the famous awards show.
Meanwhile, watch this hilarious clip of a Rangers fan’s wedding speech where he raises a toast to Stevie G and 55.
