There may be a slight accent issue when Fair City makes its Scottish debut next week...

Fair City will make its debut on Scottish TV next week but the Carrigstown accent may cause a little confusion for some viewers.

RTE sold a whopping 400 episodes of the soap to STV2, a new channel launching on April 24, and the Scots have been sharing teasers of the Dublin soap online to whet viewers' appetites.

Unfortunately, the subtitles on one juicy snippet (in which Carol has a dig at Yvonne) mistake the word 'claws' for 'class'.

Carol declares, "I've had Robbie, I've had Dan, but if that blackhearted wagon Yvonne thinks she's going to muscle in... ha!

"I might look respectable but I've still got claws!"

However, the subtitles read, "I might look respectable but I've still got class," which doesn't quite make sense and the misinterpretation is repeated in the caption, which reads, "All is fair in love and war when it comes to Yvonne for 'classy' Carol​".

It's unclear whether the promo subtitles were added by STV or RTE so Independent.ie has reached out to both for clarification...

Dublin Fire Brigade had a brilliant response to gripping fire episode of Fair City
