Paul McCartney has delivered an anti-turkey Christmas message, telling people to go vegetarian this festive season.

The former Beatle appears in animal rights charity PETA's new Christmas advertising campaign, wearing an 'eat no turkey' t-shirt beneath the slogan, "celebrate life this holiday season, go vegetarian."

McCartney has also recorded a voiceover for the group's latest campaign video about the meat industry titled 'Glass Walls' after McCartney's quote, "If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian."

Speaking about what the McCartney household eats over Christmas, he says: "We eat a veggie roast at home, so if we have traditional moments like Christmas … the roast is perfect. It's completely vegetarian, but I can slice it, so I can do all my traditional dad things. We can do our family stuff with it, and it's delicious, so I much prefer that to my memory of turkey."

Paul McCartney is the latest musician to join PETA's campaign to promote animal rights. Joss Stone appeared naked in an anti-fur campaign.

Macca is reportedly working on a new album, the follow-up to this years' collection of covers 'Kisses On The Bottom'. Producer Ethan Johns recently told NME that he had been in the studio with him, along with Mark Ronson. Adele producer Paul Epworth is also reported to be working on the record.
