Cillian Murphy has thanked Together for Yes campaigners for their efforts with a chocolate cake.

The Peaky Blinders star has been vocal in his support of a Yes vote in the upcoming Referendum on the Eighth this week.

The chocolate cake had 'Together for Yes' written in red icing on top and Together for Yes shared a photo on Twitter.

''Cillian Murphy sent us in cake! Fantastic to have support from men around the country to will stand with us and vote YES on Friday May 25th'' they wrote.

The cake was also accompanied by a note which read, "'Thank you all so much for your hard work on the Yes campaign.

''Together for change, for equality, for love. Together for Yes! Best wishes, Cillian Murphy''.

Murphy recently appeared alongside other Irish actors including Saoirse Ronan, Tom Vaughan Lawlor and Liam Cunningham in a video calling on people to vote Yes.

The video features clips of a number of actors spliced together to say, "In Ireland today, if the woman sitting next you is pregnant, she does not have full rights over her own body.

"In Ireland today, women who find themselves in crisis pregnancies, be it a scared 15-year-old, who's been sexually abused or a terrified woman who's been raped, are forced to carry the pregnancy to term."

He also recently spoke to Blindboy Boatclub of The Rubberbandits about his support for the Yes campaign.
