A HAMPSHIRE star is one of a host of celebrities who has spoken out against Scottish independence as part of a major “lovebombing” campaign.

Fiona Phillips joined other famous faces for the Let's Stay Together drive which has been launched ahead of the referendum in September.

It is hoped that the show of love to the Scots will persuade them to vote against independence.

The former GMTV star, who grew up in Southampton and whose husband is Scottish, said: “We are a family, a wonderful, mixed family. We are a dysfunctional family at times but aren't we all.

“If independence does happen I think then we are going to realise we were much better off together.

“It's like a partnership that ends and you think 'oh no, I really miss them, we could have made it work' and I think that's what we will end up thinking if independence does happen.”

Other celebrities joining the line-p include One Foot In the Grave star Richard Wilson, comedian Eddie Izzard and Mr Showbiz himself, John Barrowman.

Agree with the sentiments here, my fiance is Scottish, and in all likelihood, the children that we'll have together will be Scottish. As much as I'd love to come back home to Hampshire to live again, I'd rather not lose my job because of a lack of foresight brought on by patriarchal idiocy.

Besides, the Yes campaign up here keep shooting themselves in the foot with a series of attacks on anyone Scottish who dares to voice an opinion different to theirs, which seems to be pushing the undecided towards a No vote.
