Tomlinson is one of many celebs to feature.

Hollywood producer Mike Jefferies is filming a viral video with the aim of reaching 1 million people, explaining why Hicks and Gillett must not receive refinancing of Liverpool FC.

Jefferies has been using Twitter to keep fans updated on who is involved, with reports earlier in the week suggesting Samuel L. Jackson, Daniel Craig and Mike Myers could even feature.

Thus far, Jefferies has confirmed former Liverpool players John Aldridge and Howard Gayle will be in the video, along with former Lord Mayor of Liverpool Steve Rotheram, TV personalities Ricky Tomlinson, Craig Phillips (of Big Brother fame), actor Mark Moraghan and rock group Echo and the Bunnymen.

Jefferies also told how BBC, ITV and Sky are all sending camera crews to feature the filming of supporters on Saturday.

Jefferies told the BBC on Friday;

“We want to show Hicks’ family, his friends, his golf club acquaintances and his business associates the true feelings in this city.

“I thought it was the ideal way to give people the chance to express how they really feel.

“At the moment we believe he is going round different financiers and trying to get loans – we want to weaken his cause.”

Liverpool fans can get involved with the making of the video this weekend. Be at the Hope Street Hotel (L1 9DA) in town on Saturday: 10am-6pm or Sunday: 9am-Noon.

The video will be online on Tuesday, then you can do your part again by posting it across the internet.
