It looks like celebrities are finally getting serious about Scotland's future. After last month's intervention from Cilla Black and Kriss Akabusi failed to prevent the Yes campaign's rise in support, Eddie Izzard, Davina McCall and David Beckham have now come on board to support the union.

Izzard, alongside Dan Snow, will host a Unity Rally in Trafalgar Square this eveninig to show our Scottish neighbours how much they mean to us. The event is so quintessentially British its organisers are calling it an "informal get together" while the Spectator has offered to serve tea its readers who are planning to an attend.

Separately, David Beckham has urged Scotland to stay, saying in a message to the people of Scotland delivered via the Let's Stay Together campaign:

The decision on whether to leave our shared country is, of course down to you, it is not my intention to tell you what to do. Nevertheless, that decision will have a huge effect on each and every one of us in the United Kingdom. We want to let you know how very much we value our relationship and friendship.

Of course regardless of your decision that will never change, however, my sincere hope is that you will vote to renew our historic bond which has been such a success over the centuries and the envy of the entire world. What unites us is much greater than what divides us. Let’s stay together.

Davina McCall also has a message for Scotland, and that message is one of love:
