Alesha Dixon wants to make it illegal to eat meat.

The "Britain's Got Talent" judge - who is a pescatarian - would shut down every slaughterhouse in the UK and impose a ban on eating animal flesh if she ran the country.

The 39-year-old singer eliminated meat from her diet six years ago because she loves animals but she's struggled to go vegan because she still really enjoys dairy.

She said recently: "I listen to what my body wants. I gave up meat for many reasons, but mainly my love of animals. My mum is vegan and I think she's had a big influence on me over the years. I guess she finally cracked me. I've made other changes, too. I don't drink cows" milk any more and have almond milk instead. I feel great for it!"

I know from research that there is no humane or kind way to train an elephant and for these shows there has been intense training, and the elephants would have suffered severely. I'm highlighting this cruelty so tourists stop going and this abuse ends...

"People need to know that behind the scenes these beautiful animals are kept in tiny little pens, have no freedom and are abused for our entertainment. People want to be close to them because they are so beautiful. I would rather stand back and admire them from afar in the wild where they belong. I'm sure when people realise the hidden cruelty, they will too."
