MP! General Election: Which pop star would you like to become the next British Prime Minister?

Last week the UK made a historic decision to leave the EU and the current Prime Minister, David Cameron, announced that he will stand down to make way for another PM by October.

We’ve always thought that our favourite pop stars could do a better job of running the country, in fact they kinda do already, but why not make it official? So we’re holding our very own General Election to choose who you would like to get the next Prime Minister.

Let’s meet the candidates!



Hello…  It’s me. Down-to-earth and always up for a natter, that’s Adele! Rumour has it I’d be a pretty good candidate for PM. Certainly wouldn’t be borin’ now would I?

Ed Sheeran


Hey guys! Just thinking out loud but I think my A Team would do great in office fighting for the right of gingers everywhere.

Harry Styles


Hey guys! If you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms and if you like having secret little rendezvous and if you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do then baby, I’m perfect for PM!

Jade Thirlwall


Imma be usin’ me black magic to cast a spell on all the UK to make everyone have wings to fly! Who wouldn’t love that?

Jess Glynne


I think we could all stand to be less hard on ourselves so won’t you hold my hand in the race to become PM! Vote for me if there’s no place you’d rather be than in the UK!

Ellie Goulding


I’m hoping you’ll have me on your mind when you vote for PM. We need someone with an amazing fashion sense and quirky style to shake things up. With my loyal army of Gouldiggers by my side, how can we lose!?

Calvin Harris


Hey! Calvin here and you should vote for me to be PM because I could be the bridge between Scotland and the rest of the UK that we so desperately need. With a Scottish PM in charge the UK will stay united!



Hey what’s up it’s been a while! If you want a chilled out Prime Minister who isn’t afraid to get a bit sexy I’m your man.

Olly Alexander


Hi guys! It’s Olly here. As the role of King (under your control) isn’t available, I will be running for PM. I am a born leader who has already made great progress for gay rights. Imagine what I could do as PM!
