As a star of one of the UK's highest-rated reality shows, there's no denying that Scott Timlin aka Scotty T is hugely influential when it comes to the voting habits of young people.
And after encouraging his 1.58million Twitter followers to head out to the polling stations for the EU referendum yesterday (23 June), the Geordie Shore star, 28, has taken Prime Minister David Cameron to task following the dramatic Brexit result.
Newcastle lad Scott - who revealed prior to the referendum that he would be voting to stay in the EU - scolded the PM after his defeat.
Scott tweeted Friday morning: "The pound at the lowest since 1985. Over 500 points expected to be wiped from the Ftse this morning. David Cameron time to step up #Brexit (sic)".
Shortly after, the Prime Minister resigned from his position (saying he wasn't the right captain to 'sail the Brexit ship'), to which Scott set up a poll asking his followers who should be the next PM.
At the time of writing, his co-star Gary 'Gaz' Beadle was winning the poll, ahead of Iron Man Tony Stark, UKIP leader Nigel Farage and former Mayor of London, Boris Johnson.
We're not convinced the people of the UK will want one of the founding members of the Buck Squad to run the country, but that's a democracy for you guys.
It's worth noting that out of the entire north-east area of England, Scott's constituency of Newcastle was the only area to support Remain (by the narrow margin of 1 per cent).
The result of the referendum saw the UK vote to leave the EU with 51.9 per cent of the vote, compared to 48.1 per cent who voted to stay.
