Rio and Kate Ferdinand, Anthony Joshua, Amber Gill and Boris Becker have joined Black Lives Matter protests.

The famous faces showed their support at anti-racism rallies on Saturday.

Reality star Kate Ferdinand said attending the London protest with husband and former footballer Rio was “a moving and overwhelming experience for us”.

She added: “Honestly, we were cautious about going and taking the children but we are so glad we made the decision to go, it’s something we will all remember for the rest of our lives.

“It felt so good to be part of the movement.

“Our kids are the future, for us it’s so important for them to understand what is happening in the world and be part of the change, we need to continue to educate ourselves and the younger generation.”
