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 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.
I'm passionate about my country and whatever the result of Thursday's referendum, we will always be Great. Each side has the right to their opinion and that should always be respected whatever the outcome of the European Referendum. I played my best years at my boyhood club, Manchester United. I grew up with a core group of young British players that included Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and the Neville Brothers. Added to that was an experienced group of older British players such as Gary Pallister, Steve Bruce and Paul Ince. Now that team might have gone on to win trophies but we were a better and more successful team because of a Danish goalkeeper, Peter Schmeichel, the leadership of an Irishman Roy Keane and the skill of a Frenchman in Eric Cantona. I was also privileged to play and live in Madrid, Milan and Paris with teammates from all around Europe and the world. Those great European cities and their passionate fans welcomed me and my family and gave us the opportunity to enjoy their unique and inspiring cultures and people. We live in a vibrant and connected world where together as a people we are strong. For our children and their children we should be facing the problems of the world together and not alone. For these reasons I am voting to Remain
VB has also expressed her desire to continue being part of a united Europe (we're loving the shut down Vicky B)
In response to the @leave.eu campaign who have today tried to put a spin on quotes made 20 years ago about keeping or losing the pound, I have to say strongly my comments were not about this referendum and should not be misused in this way! I believe in my country, I believe in a future for my children where we are stronger together and I support the #remain campaign. @strongerineurope
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?'
Monsters, villains and the EU referendum, by me.https://t.co/uJRPnhBWT7— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) 20 June 2016
The Mother of Dragons was very firmly...
Daniel Craig (AKA former Bond) made a pretty strong statement when he took to Twitter to show his support for @StrongerIn.
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 has never been shy about making her opinions known. Safe to say this Insta said it all...
Artist Paloma Faith actively supported the Remain campaign via her Twitter feed. Her most recent tweet?
In 2012, the EU was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for promoting peace and protecting human rights. #StrongerIn— Paloma Faith (@Palomafaith) 22 June 2016
Despite the #glastonburytraffic headache, Glasto legend Michael Eavis (along with daughter Emily) proudly displayed his vote via Instagram.
Football ledge' and all-round nice guy Gary Lineker showed some EU love.
Personally I believe there are plenty of reasons to remain, but barely any to leave. Love Europe, love being part of Europe. #Remain— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) 22 June 2016
Sir Elton John
The Rocket Man himself took to Insta with this powerful image.
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.
