Mum-to-be Chantelle Houghton dressed up her baby bump in a sexy red and white Santa outfit and posed for pictures outside food store, Fortnum and Mason, in London. No, not to model her bump again, but to protest against the luxury food store’s continued sale of Foie Gras, Chantelle was there on behalf of animal rights charity PETA.
Chantelle, 28, who’s expecting her first child with Alex Reid, was spotted standing outside the food store in her Mrs Claus suit holding her bump and a sign that read, “ Ho, Ho, No! Fortnum and Mason. Drop Foie Gras!”
The reality TV star handed out free tins of cruelty-free “Faux Gras” to near-by shoppers, encouraging them to sign a huge Christmas card urging the store to stop selling the French delicacy.
“I’m dreaming of a kind Christmas – one where Foie Gras is nothing but a ghost from Fortnum and Mason’s past, As the signatures on our Christmas card will show, British shoppers know that this cruel product has no place on British shelve,” said Chantelle, who has been a vegetarian from a young age.
Foie Gras is made from the liver of a duck or goose that has been fattened through force-feeding the animal.
Pregnant and fighting for a cause… go Chantelle!
