 Welsh singer Charlotte Church has been blasted by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) for eating reindeer meat on a trip to Iceland.

The Crazy Chick hitmaker revealed she and her boyfriend Jonathan Powell tucked in to a meal of reindeer carpaccio while on holiday in the country to write a travel feature.

Detailing the trip for British newspaper The Guardian, she writes, "(We) spent a hilarious evening over a beautiful and boozy meal of reindeer carpaccio."

But PETA bosses have hit back at Church's choice of cuisine, telling WENN, "Perhaps she will one day lift that beautiful voice on behalf of animals such as reindeer, who deserve to be seen as someone awe-inspiring, not something to be popped into your mouth."

During the trip, Church also watched as Powell ate puffin, minke whale and fermented shark meat.
