    Dr Who star Jodie Whittaker and Scottish actor Brian Cox are the latest celebrities to back a new campaign supporting children and families in isolation under the current lockdown.

    Star Wars actor Ewan McGregor recently sent a video launching the Children's Hospices Across Scotland (Chas) Share Your Joy campaign.

    Now Whittaker and Cox have made their own messages, encouraging people to wear their favourite "geeky" T-shirt and upload uplifting videos of their own.

    The campaign starts on 4 May, often referred to as Star Wars day, a play on the movie's "May the Force Be With You" catchphrase.
