90s popstar and Doctor Who companion Billie Piper has launched a stinging attack on Boris Johnson - and urged people to vote tactically.
Piper took to social media to post a photograph of herself in a t-shirt with a parody Tesco logo that said "Tories - Very little help".
Cannot get behind a man who shames single mums and their children, uses casual racism, gambles with the NHS and gives zero f**ks about our children's future."
In a call for tactical voting, she added: "To all the young ones, learn how to vote tactically & rid us of this looming horror show."
The actress and singer encouraged people to visit a tactical voting guide from the People's Vote campaign.
Fans responded positively to the message from Piper.

"Why gotta vote The Tories out? Because we want to, because we want to," wrote another.
It comes as one anti-Brexit organisation claimed tactical voting in just 36 marginal seats can stop a Boris Johnson majority.
