Simon Pegg reminded us that the result was by no means a landslide.

Feel sad for those who campaigned hard for a yes vote. Hopefully some meaningful change will come of this. It was by no means a landslide.

Chris Evans provided the obligatory "I should probably tweet about this but don't really know what to say" comment.

Michelle Mone stayed up through the night watching the results.

Russell Brand got all motivational poster on us.

Gary Lineker provided valuable input.

Richard E. Grant was relieved.

Davina McCall kept things simple.

Mara Wilson waded in from across the pond.

And Frankie Boyle was Frankie Boyle.
