At ITV Border there was one question we had to ask - will he be voting for an independent Scotland?

I think for me it's all about what's best for our country - it's a loaded question that and it's all about information.

"For me Scotland isn't defined by a border, it's a cultural experience , something I travel round the world and speak passionately about, I carry Scotland in my heart.

"I hope it's what's best for the people of Scotland - I'm always wary of politicians, smoke and mirrors, and such like - as long as you have the pertinent information you can make the decision - will it be better for us?

"We will soon see what will unfold."

– Marti Pellow
