It’s had a load of famous faces jump on board both the YES and NO bandwagons.
And today Simon Cowell waded into the Scottish Referendum furore – as he declared himself most definitely in the NO camp.
Mr X Factor revealed himself to be a quarter Scottish (who KNEW!) and although he of course has no say in the matter of whether the country should be independent from the UK, he made his feelings very clear.
And it all comes back to little Baby Eric – WELL SORTA.
Speaking to ITV’s Lorraine he said: “Personally us all splitting up, it’s like splitting up a family in a way.
“I go to Scotland a lot, I’m a quarter Scottish. At the same time, I don’t live there so it’s quite irritating I think to people who live there to think ‘well why should you have an opinion if you don’t live there?’.
“At the same time, if it was the other way round and we were voting to leave Scotland and people weren’t saying ‘we want you to stay’ I’d be quite disappointed.”
Wise words from the media mogul indeed, who joins a string of celebrity faces like David Beckham, James McAvoy and Vivienne Westwood in making his voice heard on the matter.
Meanwhile SiCo has spent the rest of his time this week with the UK’s biggest export, One Direction.
The 54-year-old saw his X Factor boyband babies perform in the US earlier this week, before wishing Niall Horan a happy 21st birthday.
Despite both Simon Cowell and Harry Styles missing out on Niall Niall’s key birthday, the shenanigans were suitably raucous.
It was almost like Harry was there in Vegas based on this little Vine video.
The looped vid has been doing the rounds amongst the 1D fandem, after someone in the club snapped cheeky Irish chappy Niall KISSING what looks like a guy, who LOOKS a lot like Harry Styles on his birthday night out.
So many questions. Such little time.
First up – it most definitely WASN’T the world’s most famous Harry.
Said dude may have a samurai bun (which was totally trademarked by HS) but he also has a full fuzz beard. Hazza, not so much.
Secondly, we’re not even sure Niall is K-I-S-S-I-N-G this dude. Because it takes a lot for someone to actually eat face – and maybe they were just having a chat?
Nonetheless Directioners went predictably crazy at what on earth this could mean – and with Liam Payne’s broken arm and Harry Styles’ chest pains it was *quite* the 24 hours on Twitter.
We <3 Niall who instantly responded to the rumours with the below tweet.
TBF he’s probably not finding anything THAT amusing as we imagine he’s pretty hungover after the 21st party to end all parties in Sin City.
His old BFF Marvin Humes of JLS turned up to DJ no less.
Tweeting this bit of bromance too:
