Gemma Collins has become a vegetarian but is still struggling to curb her meat-eating ways when she's drunk
Gemma Collins is "99 per cent" vegetarian.
The 'Only Way is Essex' star has decided to banish meat from her diet after she looked into the cruelty that goes on behind closed doors at slaughter houses but has admitted that she's still struggling to stay on the straight and narrow when she's drinking booze.
Speaking on 'Loose Women' on Thursday (07.09.17), she said: "Since I've been back from Marbella, I've been on this whole quest and I've been helping a lot of animal charities in Essex, which I really love to do.
"And animals that have been really badly treated. I know it's bad and it makes me sick because I watch all these videos that go up about animal cruelty and they're like: 'Don't show me it.' And I'm like: 'Look, I know it's hard to watch but if you turn a blind eye to it then you don't know it's going on.' Since then, I've 99 per cent become a vegetarian. I say 1 per cent because I went out and got drunk, came home and had pie and mash."
The 36-year-old blonde babe - who is single at the moment - decided to throw herself into caring for animals after she realised she had so much love but no one to give it to.
She explained: "I felt so unfulfilled and I had all this love but I couldn't give it to anyone and as you get older you realise the materialistic things in life mean nothing and I think for six years I come on to the reality show and it was the first one to get the Range Rover, the big house, the big watch and them things come into your life and you're still not happy. So when I went back to Marbella [over the summer] I said I don't need to be living this five-star lifestyle. So we went to this farm in Marbella."
