"I think the best and right thing to do is to put it back to the people and say you can have a vote on this deal", she said.

Actor Patrick Stewart, a supporter of the People's Vote campaign, said campaigners were not asking for a second referendum, but rather wanted "another chance to consider what the terms of this divorce are going to be".
