Heather Mills Signs Burger King Deal | Showbiz Spy
Heather Mills, Sir Paul McCartney's ex wife has just signed a deal with BK Burger King to promote the new BK vegan veggie Whopper burger for £4.3 million pounds. This is a little bit of a poke in the eye for The Vegetarian Society who allegedly get less than a half a per cent of that amount for promoting the McDonalds vegetarian option despite having the backing of Sir Paul McCartney himself.
Heather is notoriously generous on animal rights issues and it's hoped a percentage of that fee will find it's way in supporting vegan campaigns in the UK and around the world.
Thousands of people attended the Brighton Vegan Festival on Saturday despite the distraction of the glorious sunny seaside weather. Having bought a new vegan cafe in nearby Hove it was hoped Heather Mills would attend but she was clearly preparing for mothers day with Beatrice.
