Delia Smith tells the crowds that 'the only way we can avoid this total madness and win back our future has to be a People's Vote.'
The TV chef and Norwich City shareholder has spoken out against Brexit and called on MPs to give the country a final say.
Delia said that Brexit could be summed up in two words - 'unmitigated chaos' and said that the decision to leave the EU had 'dire consequences'.
Speaking in front of crowds as they made their way to Parliament she said the people were now more informed on what Brexit meant.
'The NHS loses doctors and nurses, large companies move out, factories close, jobs are lost... and what are we doing? We're building lorry parks and stockpiling drugs.'

Deborah Meaden, star of Dragons' Den and a businesswoman, represented the industry in speaking out against Brexit.
She said that Brexit had already caused 'businesses to pause' meaning 'fewer jobs, less tax revenue, meaning less money to spend on our public services.'
Addressing hundreds of thousands in the crowds she said: 'If someone came to me with a proposal that said I will make you and your family poorer, I will hurt businesses, jobs and communities across the UK, and I will actively cut-off ties with our largest trading partner. And if we don't get a deal we'll have to stockpile food and medicine. I'm guessing you know what I'll say... I'm out!'
Deborah Meaden and Delia Smith were joined by crossparty support from Labour, Lib Dem, Green and Tory MPs as well as speakers from Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland too.
