The celebrities who endorse the Tories, Labour or Lib Dems
Big names from Stormzy to Alan Sugar get behind political parties
The battle for Downing Street is raging as the general election campaign enters its last few days.
The race for No. 10 has seen the parties and their backers pitted against one another, with plenty of declarations of support from unexpected – and some very expected – corners.
But it’s not just your uncle’s Facebook posts that have strayed into distinctly partisan territory. Celebrities from across the UK and beyond have thrown their weight behind the major parties, with musicians, actors and comedians all making their allegiances known.
Labour has enjoyed some big-name support, while the Tories have had to rely on a decidedly B-list roster offering their backing.
And it’s not just the big parties who have received support. The Green Party has attracted backing from John Cleese, Richard Dawkins and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
Former Oasis star Liam Gallagher also got behind the Greens, telling the Daily Mirror: “I’m voting for the Green Party: the rest of them are all selfish and clueless.”
