Craig Ferguson is going back to Scotland and taking “The Late Late Show” viewers along for the trip.

CBS says the Scotland-based episodes will air the week of May 14. While there, Ferguson explores Edinburgh and Glasgow. He also returns to his hometown of Cumbernauld, with stops at his childhood home and high school.

On the trip, taped last month, he’s joined by actors Mila Kunis, Michael Clarke Duncan and Rashida Jones, as well as author-humorist David Sedaris.

Music will be performed by local Glasgow rock band The Imagineers.

This marks the second international trip for the show. It also went to Paris last year.

Brown pleads not guilty to DUI in LA

Bobby Brown has pleaded not guilty to drunken driving and other charges stemming from his arrest last month in Los Angeles.

City News Service says an attorney entered pleas Monday on Brown’s behalf to misdemeanor counts of DUI, driving with an illegal blood-alcohol content and driving on a suspended license. He could face up to six months in jail if convicted.

Brown didn’t attend the Superior Court arraignment in Van Nuys.

The 43-year-old singer is the former husband of the late Whitney Houston. He was arrested by the California Highway Patrol on March 26.

Jack White to stream concert

Jack White will kick off the release of his first solo album with a concert streamed live online, to be directed by Gary Oldman.

The show will be the first installment in the third season of American Express’ “Unstaged” series, which pairs top musical acts with renowned filmmakers. White’s concert at New York’s Webster Hall will be streamed live April 27 on VEVO, free of charge.

On April 24, White will release “Blunderbuss,” the first solo album from the former White Stripe.

Though best known for his acting, Oldman directed the critically-acclaimed 1997 film “Nil by Mouth.”
