After the news was announced last night that Joe Biden has been named as the president-elect of the United States of America, with Kamala Harris as his vice president, the internet erupted with reactions - and it seems the wait of this week has left celebrities just as humbled as your average Joe (sorry).

While the final poll results from across America are still officially being counted, it's been projected by numerous outlets that Biden and the Democrats have won. Despite incumbent president Donald Trump insisting he will take legal action after continually making unsubstantiated claims of fraud in regards to the election, Biden and Harris have accepted the projected result, and promised to "unify the country".

In a speech given overnight UK time, Biden said: "The people of this nation have spoken. They’ve delivered us a clear victory, a convincing victory, a victory for you the people.

"I’m humbled by the trust and confidence you’ve placed in me."

Harris - the first woman and the first woman of colour to be elected as vice president - also spoke, telling voters: “While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last, because every little girl watching tonight sees that this is a country of possibilities.”
