BBC star Kate Spiers looking for someone to take on her Glasgow south side coffee shop

Influencer and BBC Scotland star Kate Spiers has today announced she and her husband will be be leaving their popular south side cafe behind.

Along with her partner Jordan, the Scotland Home of the Year presenter has ran Market Coffee for over four years.

But it's not all sad news, as the couple are looking for Glaswegians to take over the business.

Posting on Instagram this morning, they said: "The time has come for Market to close. After four incredible years of helping keep Mount Florida living on coffee, cake and flowers! We've been a small, family-run business since the start and residents of the area for even longer. Cathcart Road will always feel like home for us, but it's time for us to settle somewhere new.

"We've put so much time and love in to Market over the years and for that reason we would love to see it continue to thrive as a small business. We're putting this out there in the hopes that someone with similar values has dreamt of opening their own place in the south side."
