Ricky Whittle Bares All for Bears

Strictly Come Dancing fans are eagerly awaiting the return of the next series and looking forward to who will be crowned the 2010 winner. We already know that ex-Hollyoaks hunk and 2009 Strictly Come Dancing runner-up Ricky Whittle is a winner for baring his toned body in the latest ad for our Unbearable Cruelty campaign.

When Ricky, who can next be seen on TV screens in the BBC's Candy Cabs, learned how bears are killed to make The Queen's Guards' ceremonial caps, he jumped at the chance to help end this horror. Ricky joins other caring celebrities who have starred in PETA ads for bears, including Lucy Davis, Jamie Bamber, Kate Ford, Imogen Bailey and Julian Clary.

It takes an entire bear's hide to make just one cap, and Ricky agrees with PETA and compassionate people worldwide that fake fur is the way to go and that bear-baiting should be stopped. Join Ricky and thousands of other compassionate people by speaking out against the slaughter of Canada's bears. Please sign the petition below calling for a faux-fur alternative to the Guards' bearskin caps.

Sign this petition:

Instead of financially supporting the shameful slaughter of black bears for The Queen's Guards' ceremonial caps, Great Britain should set a compassionate example by switching to high-tech and luxurious faux-fur fabrics and committing to stopping the killing of black bears.
