How your favourite musicians and celebrities are voting in the UK general election 2017

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.

Wolf Alice’s Ellie Rowsell – Labour

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.

My thoughts on the upcoming election. I have a confession to make, I have never voted in a general election in my…

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.

Sleaford Mods – Labour

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.

To summarise:

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.
