The star tweeted her excitement to be part of PETA's campaign, writing "So proud to reveal my PETA advert. It was a nerve wracking but brilliant experience 4 something I really believe in."
Alexandra has explained her support for the charity as well as her nerves during her big shoot. "I was nervous about posing nude as I've never done it before. It was uncomfortable initially, but the photographer made me feel relaxed and at ease," she said, adding "Ultimately I love my body, so it was great to do something for such a worthwhile cause."
"When I found out what happens to animals on fur farms my heart just sank. I have animals and the thought of someone hurting them so they can be turned into a coat makes me sick," she said. "Anyone thinking about buying or wearing fur should watch PETA's videos of animals suffering on fur farms - after seeing them, I can't imagine anyone would want to be caught dead in fur."
Alexandra Burke's new EP, #NewRules, featuring JLS' Aston Merrygold and Wretch 32 is out on release now.
The Shot Is Designed To Raise Awareness About Animal Cruelty In The Fur Industry.
