Under the terms of the 2014 referendum, only voters who are registered in Scotland were allowed to vote.

This excluded some half a million Scottish-born people living in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Boris Johnson has repeatedly insisted he will not allow a new independence referendum under his premiership, but Mr Phillips believes he may be forced to.

If these people were included it would be almost impossible for the Yes vote to win, the equality campaigner said.

But out of the 60 percent not eligible to vote, there was an even larger 41 percentage point lead for the Unionists.

Mr Phillips added: 'Opinion may have moved on, but it is likely that a further half a million votes might be added to the unionist cause, making a defeat for independence certain.'

Last month, Michael Gove triggered uproar among the SNP after commenting that the move was an 'interesting idea'.

He was responding to a message posted by fellow Scot George Galloway, who argued that "795,000 Scots living elsewhere in the UK MUST have a vote" if there is another separation referendum.

His comments infuriated separatists including the SNP's Constitution Minister Mike Russell, who accused the Tory minister of trying to gerrymander the vote following a poll showing 55 per cent support for independence.

Others are opposed to changing the voting criteria due to the difficulty of deciding who counts as a citizen of Scotland, as this could potentially include millions of people outside the country who have Scottish relatives.
