Recently, Shelina’s name has pop up again, as many wonder the truth behind her religion.
Shelina’s religion is Islam, the decision she made five years ago, as she started following the faith independently.
Shelina resides at Lime Wood, and was born in Southampton to Mauritian parents who love her spicy and exotic Mauritius street food dishes.
She has been involved in many foodie projects since winning the show in 2012, including working with big-name brands.
The master chef has opened a lot of things about her religious beliefs and how it looks different if you belong to another color group in a White Supremacist country.
In one of her interviews in feedthelion. com, she said, “I am a Mauritian Muslim woman, born in Britain, with a daughter who is a British Moroccan- Mauritian. The photo shows what I intend to do: lead by example and not be scared to SPEAK UP.
“This is the first time I’ve ever said these things because I am not scared anymore,” she added.
Shelina Permallo husband Andrea Vinci could keep the relationship just for two years after her win, they later got divorced just after two years of her victory over the Masterchef in 2012.
