A British musician has been lauded after saying it was a "grave error" for the country to Brexit in the middle of an international crisis.
Yungblud, whose real name is Dominic Richard Harrison, caught Twitter users' attention when he called on the government to extend EU trade talk and avoid the UK "legitimately running out of food".
The 23-year-old pop artist from Doncaster posted: "Brexit is a mistake. Leaving the EU let alone in an international crisis is a grave error. Extend the talks, we cannot afford to leave Europe, we will legitimately run out of food. We need to stay together right now not be divided."
Messages of support soon followed.
Jordan posted: "I don’t know Yungblud much but I'm glad he said this."
