Former Albion manager Alan Pardew has been named on a list of celebrities who have agreed to help pay for people to travel to a Brexit protest march.

Pardew is one of a number of people who has given at least £1,000 to fund coaches to London on October 20 for the 'People's Vote' march.

The march follows a previous one in June that was attended by tens of thousands of people.

Norwich City owner and celebrity chef Delia Smith has also been named on the list, as has former Sky Sports presenter Richard Keys, and ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher.

The march is free to attend, but celebrities are paying for coach travel for people from their area to get down to London.

The money donated by Pardew, who was sacked by West Brom after just four months in charge last season, is going towards travel for the people of Chichester.

Other people who have donated include Steve Coogan, Sir Patrick Stewart, Alastair Campbell, and Eddie Izzard.
