No, not possible.
Open an account with Revolut, Fire, Starling. Other options available.
Revolut has the best exchange rate though ;-)

Revolut and Transferwise also have the ability to "top up" via debit or credit card, which is faster than a European SEPA transfer, and then convert to GBP and send to a UK account. Might be interesting.
Hit me up for a Transferwise referral ;)

SEPA transfers are also FREE with Revolut :-)
Fantastic for crypto trading.

Fantastic for crypto trading to exchanges, but DO NOT do OTC trades on a personal Revolut acount as they will 100% close your account and may even return funds to their original sender

Starling Bank seem to have a pathology of antagonism and hostility towards cryptocurrency. I just tried to do an international (SEPA) transfer to coinbase and got an error stating that 'overseas accounts associated with cryptocurrency are not supported.'

Why use Starling. It's expensive to send SEPA transfers and the exchange rate is not good.
Don’t throw your money down the drain, use Revolut (its FREE), or Fidor.

Because you need to deposit money to Coinbase in order to set that account up to receive funds (withdrawals) from them. I want to have as many accounts as possible to receive with, to reduce the risk of hostile interference. I have already set up Revolut, and I cannot use Fidor until they start giving us personal IBANs to receive with.

I just received confirmation that Starling do not allow cryptocurrency related transactions, one to avoid I would say.

Luckily, no hostile interference where I live. It's a nice pleasant neighbourhood.
