Simon Cowell and Game of Thrones star keen for Scotland to stay in UK

PA Scotland

A Game Of Thrones star and Simon Cowell have come out as unionists — with both saying they want Scotland to stay in the UK.

X Factor boss Cowell said he wants the UK to remain as "one big happy family".

The new father has become the latest celebrity to speak out on Scotland's future in the run-up to the independence referendum in September.

Meanwhile, Scots actress Rose Leslie, who stars in the hit shows Downton Abbey and Game Of Thrones, said she had a "real concern about independence".

Cowell, who is to return as a judge on X Factor later this year, reportedly said: "My mum's maiden name was Dalglish so I have Scottish blood in me.

"Personally, I would like us all to be together."
