“The plan now is to go to every Greggs in the country,” she said. “My favorite from Greggs is definitely the vegan sausage roll- I love them. I started posting the pictures on Instagram and my friends thought it was hilarious – then strangers started commenting.

“I’ve been to more than 50 stores so far, but I’m planning to add a lot more to my total by visiting some big cities and going on multiple Greggs visits in one day.

“I have been a vegetarian my whole life, I have never eaten meat, my parents are vegetarian, so I was brought up like this and then chose to continue being a vegetarian. When Greggs brought out the Vegan Sausage roll I was in heaven. My friends think it’s probably the most hilarious thing I’ve ever done in my life. But now I’m on a mission.”
