Hint: Not Tory
2015’s General Election was full of celebrity endorsements: Steve Coogan and Jo Brand were among those voicing support for Labour; Andrew Lloyd Webber and Simon Cowell formed a tiny cabal of Tory-supporting talent-show moguls; Joey Essex ditched specific allegiances, describing UKIP’s Nigel Farage as “reem” and Liberal Democrats’ Nick Clegg as an “honest guy”. 2017 sees a vastly changed political landscape, with Tory and Labour ideologies now demonstrably opposing one another, and UKIP dying in the wings. So who are your favourite celebs going to vote for on June 8?
Jme – Labour
The Grime MC and brother of Skepta is pro-Corbyn.
Novelist – Labour
Another Grime MC supporting Jezza all the way is Novelist, who was once deputy young mayor for Lewisham.
Stormzy – Labour
Stormz, who once called Tory MP Zac Goldsmith a “proper pussyhole”, has been showing continued support for Corbyn.
Nadia Rose – Labour
Stormzy’s cousin is also well into Corbz’s Labour.
AJ Tracey – Labour
Another #Grime4Corbyn legend of course.

Wolf Alice’s Ellie Rowsell – Labour
“Turn this unexpected, snakey snap election into a blessing,” she’s told fans on Twitter.
M.I.A. – Labour (probably)
She likes Corbyn’s humanity.
Robert Webb – Labour
Despite disagreeing with Corbyn in the past – he said JC supporters had made a “mistake” by voting him leader – the Peep Show star is still pro-Labour.
Akala – Labour
Despite being known for making wise pronouncements on politics in the past, Akala has never voted before. This time, he’s voting Labour.
Michaela Coel – Labour/Green
The Chewing Gum star doesn’t really seem to mind who you vote for, as long as it isn’t Tory.
John Cleese – Labour/Liberal Democrats
The comedy legend likes red and yellow. Not blue, though.
Danny DeVito – Labour
Who’d have thunk it from the New Jersey comedy legend?
Reverend and the Makers – Labour
It’s almost like there’s a theme emerging here…
Enter Shikari’s Rou Reynolds – Labour
Another Labour fan.
Rob Delaney – Labour
The co-creator of Catastrophe loves a good hashtag.
Limmy – SNP/Labour
The Scottish comedian is gunning for an SNP win in Scotland, and a Labour one elsewhere. Could happen.

We’d hate to see what else is on their scabby wretched feed.
Jessica Hynes – Labour
The star of Spaced and W1A says the past 7 years have been a “sado-masochistic Tory binge”.
Brian May – not Tory
May has been a staunch Labour supporter in the past. He’s not really commented on this year’s vote but he is definitely anti-May and anti-Tory – the nail in the coffin being May’s recent support of fox-hunting.
Eddie Izzard – Labour
Izzard is historically a dedicated Labour campaigner and has been sharing pro-Labour messages on Twitter.
Lily Allen – Labour
The star is always retweeting pro-Corbyn stuff, and in the below tweet she’s encouraging people to register to vote with a snazzy May-bashing tee.
Rag’n’Bone Man – Labour
Graham admits he’s not ‘politcally-savvy’ but reckons Corbyn is the one for him.
Goldie – Labour
Though some despaired at the snap election announcement, ’90s legend Goldie welcomes it. “We need this every so often. I am a massive fan of Jeremy Corbyn, this is not new we were doing this in the 1990s.”
Thom Yorke – no one
Radiohead’s main man envisages a future of doom. Probably better to vote Labour.
Everyone who’s anyone in the entertainment world is voting Labour, and everyone else is keeping schtum about their voting intentions for some reason. But we’ll update this page if we find any evidence to the contrary. Even if they’re Tory.
