Kermit the Frog has become the latest celebrity figure to pledge his support for Scotland staying in the UK.

Asked in a Big Issue interview whether he agreed with David Bowie on keeping the union in tact, the Muppets star replied "Absolutely!".

However he did warn that his long-time partner Miss Piggy may not share his opinion.

“I understand that Miss Piggy is willing to serve as Queen of Scotland if there is a split. So you may want to guard your castles.”
