BBC's Veganville cast on Instagram - bodybuilder Korin and Joey Carbstrong!

New series Veganville premiered on BBC Three earlier in the year to spread the word about the health benefits of a plant-based diet.

Now, the series is airing on BBC 1 every Tuesday night at 10:35 pm.

Veganville follows five vegans as they go to Merthyr Tydfil, a town surrounded by hills and farmland in Wales. The contestants meet people who depend on animal agriculture to explain the advantages of switching to a vegan lifestyle.

So who’s taking part in the show? Let’s meet the cast of Veganville and understand how they turned to vegans.

You could find her on Twitter under the handle @JodiMayAnderson and there’s more information about her from the management agency that represents her.

Korin

In week two, the four other contestants met the fifth star of the series – 33-year old Korin from Miami.

He is a professional personal trainer and bodybuilder across the pond. Korin is passionate about fitness and has a good social media presence. You can’t find him on Instagram under the name of @korinsutton.
