Alesha Dixon wants to make meat illegal

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.

Speaking to the Daily Mail newspaper, she said: "I'd make smoking illegal and I'd ban the slaughter of animals for food or anything. So I'd close down every factory responsible for either and make it illegal to smoke or eat meat. Everyone would be fine, trust me!"

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!"

Alesha took part in an undercover mission this time last year to expose the cruelty that animals go through at entertainment venues in Thailand and she admitted at the time that she felt "ashamed to be a human being" and wants to stop tourists from funding abuse.

She explained at the time: "I feel ashamed to be a human being. 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...

Alesha Dixon's New Year's resolution is to be more selfish

"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."
