The UK Has Spoken. Which Way Did The Celebs Vote In The EU Referendum?

The UK Has Spoken. Which Way Did The Celebs Vote In The EU Referendum?

Britain votes leave. Everyone tries not to panic.

No doubt about it, we're all a little stunned this morning. The EU referendum is probably the most important political event to happen in our lifetime, and after weeks of relentless campaigning on both sides, the general public finally had their say.

Despite some of our favourite celebrities wading into the fray, the future now looks uncertain. Using their influence on social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram, A-listers are voiced their opinions on Europe, with the majority vehemently leaning towards the vote Remain campaign. Despite their best efforts, vote Leave won 51.9% of the vote.

We wonder how these celebs are going to commiserate today...

David Beckham

David certainly ruffled a few feathers after posting his ‘voting to Remain’ decision on Instagram. Using a picture of himself and Eric Cantona in Manchester United jerseys (oh, the glory days), David praised both parties but ended his statement about remaining within the EU.


Victoria Beckham

VB has also expressed her desire to continue being part of a united Europe (we're loving the shut down Vicky B)


JK Rowling

The Harry Potter author was quite vocal in her support of the Remain campaign. In a recent blog post she stated:

'How can a retreat into selfish and insecure individualism be the right response when Europe faces genuine threats, when the bonds that tie us are so powerful, when we have come so far together? How can we hope to conquer the enormous challenges of terrorism and climate change without cooperation and collaboration?'

Emilia Clarke

The Mother of Dragons was very firmly...

#remain #in #eu #simple ✌️🇪🇺

Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig (AKA former Bond) made a pretty strong statement when he took to Twitter to show his support for @StrongerIn.

Idris Elba

When Idris Elba makes a statement on Twitter, people tend to sit up and listen. He made no small talk about which way he was voting.

Cara Delevingne

Cara has never been shy about making her opinions known. Safe to say this Insta said it all...


Paloma Faith

Artist Paloma Faith actively supported the Remain campaign via her Twitter feed. Her most recent tweet?

Michael Eavis

Despite the #glastonburytraffic headache, Glasto legend Michael Eavis (along with daughter Emily) proudly displayed his vote via Instagram.


Gary Lineker

Football ledge' and all-round nice guy Gary Lineker showed some EU love.


Sir Elton John

The Rocket Man himself took to Insta with this powerful image.

I'm voting to remain. #StrongerInEurope

Daisy Ridley

Words cannot express how much team InStyle loves this girl...


Other celebrities voting to remain in Europe included Florence Welch, Simon Cowell, Jarvis Cocker and Benedict Cumberbatch.

And those wanting to leave?

Because there are always two sides to any argument, there were some celebs that felt the UK would benefit from leaving the EU. These include the likes of John Cleese, Roger Daltrey and Sir Michael Caine. Suffice to say they'll be celebrating today.
