This is not the first time the SNP politician has received viral fame, after racking up more than 10 million views online following her maiden speech.

In her speech, the then 20-year-old attacked to Conservative Government and Labour's limp opposition.

"I have heard multiple speeches from Labour benches standing to talk about the worrying rise of nationalism in Scotland, when in actual fact all these speeches have served to do is to demonstrate how deep the lack of understanding about Scotland is within the Labour Party," she said.

"I, like so many SNP members, come from a traditional socialist Labour family, and I have never been quiet in my assertion that I feel it is the Labour Party that left me, not the other way about.

"The SNP did not triumph on a wave of nationalism; in fact nationalism has nothing to do with what’s happened in Scotland. We triumphed on a wave of hope, hope that there was something different, something better to the Thatcherite neo-liberal policies that are produced from this chamber. Hope that representatives genuinely could give a voice to those who don’t have one."

Ms Black, who represents Paisley and Renfrewshire South, is the youngest MP since the 17th Century.
