He is joined by Edinburgh model Simone Murphy, who describes herself as a “vegan pizza addict”.

Dinarte, 26, said: “The health benefits of eating vegan are outstanding, and in the short time I’ve been vegan, I have noticed a huge benefit to my health and well-being.”

“Vegans are, on average, slimmer and healthier and have more energy than their meat-eating peers, plus, there’s nothing hotter than compassion,” said PETA director Elisa Allen.
