Muller, who will be performing ‘I Wrote A Song’ at the event in Liverpool next month, was particularly vocal about her disdain for the Conservative Party during the COVID-19 pandemic. She even questioned the legitimacy of Boris Johnson’s stay in hospital.

“Please register to vote today! And when you do vote please vote Labour! We have the power to take those racist elitists down so lets do it. F**k the Tories!” | Mae Muller
