A host of celebrities have revealed in the upcoming election as the country prepares to go to the polls on December 12.

Everyone from Stormzy to Kathy Burke has been encouraging people to vote ahead of the general election.

From galvanising social media followers, to dropping hints in interviews and even showing up at rallies, celebrity endorsements are on the rise as election fever builds.

With just a few weeks to go before the big day, we take a look over who is backing who.

Stormzy encouraged his fans to vote for the Labour Party as he came out in support of Jeremy Coryn.

In the run up to the last election in 2017, the Grime star threw his support behind Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

He has thrown his support behind Labour again and his call to register to vote before the deadline saw hundreds of thousands of young people get involved.

Following his social media posts, the voter registration site saw a huge 351k spike.

According to the gov.uk website, the number of applications to register soared to 351,000 between 24 -25 November.

The same 24 hours saw an extra 104,300 people aged between 18-24 register to vote.

In his message to followers, Stormzy also revealed he would be voting for Jeremy Corbyn , believing he is “the first man in a position of power who is committed to giving the power back to the people and helping those who need a helping hand from the government the most.”

Lily Allen

The Smile hitmaker has also come out in support of the Labour and attended the launch of the party’s £1bn charter for the arts.

Lily said: “The idea that we’ll have access to more galleries and theatres and that children will be able to learn a musical instrument is crucial.”

Following the release of the Labour manifesto, Lily shared a video of her crying and saying: “Guys I’ve just watched the Labour manifesto and I think it’s the best… manifesto I’ve ever seen”.

She also shared a picture of her polling card with the caption: “Tories OUT.”

She also used the hashtags ” #RealChange#LabourManifesto ” to spread her message far and wide.

Kathy Burke

Ahead of the election announcement, lifelong labour voter Kathy spoke of her unease with the current political climate.

Asked about who she’d theoretically vote for in interview with the Independent, Kathy said: “I’d probably go Green because I am really worried about climate change and the planet. I’ve been a Labour voter all my life… But I don’t know how I feel about things at the moment, quite honestly.”

On the state of the economy and gentrification, Kathy added: “The whole thing is a terrible mess. I really feel for young people, I don’t know what they’re going to do. Especially living in London, they can’t afford a place to live and they won’t be able to afford to eat soon.

“Look at Hoxton [in east London]. Hoxton was a s***hole, and now it costs a fortune to live in someone’s bin shed.”

Liam Gallagher

The outspoken Oasis rocker weighed in on his political leanings during his recent column for the Mirror.

Liam who previously said he “loves Europe”, described Brexit as like being on “a bad trip” and dubbed politicians “f**king d**kheads”

“It’s just going round. You turn on the TV and it’s some geezer going ‘I don’t know what’s going on’.

“Come on, you f***king d**kheads. You all went to Eton, you went to all these fish schools. Come on you idiots.”

Liam explained that he would definitely not vote Conservative and would most likely back the Green Party because they ‘make sense’.

“Labour I can’t do, I’m not sure about them. It would be the Green Party – that is the only party that makes sense.

“We know for a fact that the world is in a bad place; we know that we need to do more, but the other clowns are going, ‘we are going to do this’ and ‘we are going to do that’ and then they get into power and do f*** all.”

He previously said to NME he takes politics with a “pinch of salt, because you don’t know who to trust”.

Eddie Izzard

Eddie has been a Labour Party activist for most of his adult life.

This year will be no different. The comedian was spotted campaigning in Blackpool and Cleveleys earlier this month where he delivered a speech for candidate Chris Webb.
