Model Nicola McLean Bursts Out of ‘Unhappy Birthday’ Cake at Selfridges

Written by PETA | May 27, 2009

Yesterday, Nicola McLean—model, star of I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here, and all-around hottie—teamed up with our friends over at PETA Europe to wish the dastardly European department store Selfridge’s an “Unhappy Birthday.”

Nicola, flanked by two other models, burst out of a cake in front of Selfridges’ Oxford Street store despite the inclement weather. The ladies simply sizzled in yellow bikinis (a nod to the store’s centenary Big Yellow Festival celebrations) as they urged the chain to remove cruel foie gras from its shelves.

“While Selfridges celebrates its centenary, ducks and geese who are force-fed for foie gras die before their first birthday and have nothing to celebrate,” says Nicola. “I won’t be shopping at Selfridges until they stop selling foie gras.” You say it, girl!

    Perhaps I’m missing something here but isn’t ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ the very same programme that has the contestants eating live insects etc? Fair play to the girl for her present and highly commendable stance but let’s not forget the gruesome and sickening reality of the programme she was shamefully a part of.

    Any of these three ladies could be very convincing…

    I just LOVE when celebrities use their pull to bring awareness to such important causes! I love Nicola from now on and will watch her on her new show! You rock PETA!!

    It’s totally true. People shouldn’t eat foie gras. However today here in France it’s quite common. We should manifest in France as well try
