Sir Paul McCartney has said the Brexit referendum was "probably a mistake" and he'll "be glad when it's over".

The ex-Beatle, who didn't vote in the 2016 referendum, said he "didn't see anybody saying anything sensible enough".

He said the current situation was "a mess", but added: "I think we'll come through it, we always do."

Sir Paul was speaking to BBC Newsnight as he - with daughters, Stella and Mary - released a book of personal photos, taken by his late wife, Linda.

The book - 'Linda McCartney. The Polaroid Diaries' - compiles more than 200 photographs from her private collection and offers a glimpse into the family's life in Scotland and southern England.

Newsnight is the BBC's flagship news and current affairs TV programme - with analysis, debate, exclusives, and robust interviews.

Good grief. . Mary is like a 50/50 mix of Paul and Linda. She's definitely got Paul's eyebrows

I love Paul's "I love all of my children equally!" haha such a dad thing to say!

Stella is far from an expert on her dad's Beatles era. He wasn't a teen when "All You Need Is Love" was made. Furthermore, it was mainly John's song.

Actually he said "The referendum was probably a mistake". Out of 12 minute's footage it was one line and that's what you use for the clickbait video title? Sad.

Stella: "My memories were of my parents making 'RAM'". Hmm. Stella was born around six months AFTER that album was released...
