Over 10 years ago Victoria became a vegan. The very same day she attended a talk on the dairy industry by Juliet Gellatley (founder of Viva!) and has since fronted numerous PETA campaigns and been a proud animal activist.
Victoria says being a vegan runs in her veins, it’s not a diet, it’s a life style. For her it says “I love life, all life!”
