A local said: “We are all delighted to welcome Graham and his partner to our area. He’s always been a huge supporter of our local fundraising events, has no clue about snobbery and is widely regarded as a nice guy.”
Mr Norton, 59, who was first seen with Mr McLeod at Heathrow in December 2019, quietly attended the Glasgow premiere of Mr McLeod’s latest film earlier this year.
Mr McLeod, 44, recently released My Old School, a documentary about a former classmate who managed to convince school officials that he was 16 when he was in his 30s.

In an interview for online magazine Queerty, Mr McLeod described his school days at Bearsden Academy in Glasgow, saying: “My experience was going to that school, keeping my head down, trying not to be bullied, trying , not to get anyone to discover my secret — which is that I was a 16-year-old gay boy who desperately wanted no one to know.”
Several friends of Mr McLeod mentioned on social media that they were in Cork last week, including Holby City star Dawn Steele and Shelly McErlaine, who wrote the music for My Old School on the manicured lawns.
Representatives of Mr Norton and Mr McLeod have been contacted for comment.
