Ellie Goulding battling cheese cravings on new vegan diet

British pop star ELLIE GOULDING is struggling to maintain her new vegan diet because she has a serious weakness for cheese.

The Lights hitmaker reveals she recently became the latest celebrity to ban all animal products from her diet, but she admits it hasn't been easy.

She tells Us Weekly magazine, "I went vegan a few months ago. I feel leaner and healthier, but I miss cheese. A cheese plate with fruit is my weakness!"

Goulding isn't alone in her battle to avoid cheese - House of Cards actress Kate Mara also faced a struggle as she gave up her love of her favorite food to become a vegan.

She tells Playboy magazine, "I'm a vegan, but that doesn't mean I get up and leave if I'm out to dinner with someone who orders steak.

"Their biggest surprise is that I don't eat cheese anymore, and I don't blame them because cheese was definitely the hardest thing to give up."
