The star has vowed to cut out meat for now

Reality TV star Gemma Collins has revealed that she has become a vegetarian.

Gemma filmed her brother Russell – who is a vegan – as he prepared a meal using brown pasta, cashew nuts, tofu and leftover Brussels sprouts.

I’m doing this, this is the year of not eating meat, I don’t feel good.

“I’m doing this, this is the year of not eating meat, I don’t feel good,” Gemma admitted.

“We are on a massive health kick in this house,” she continued.

As she panned around the kitchen, showing viewers her ingredients, Gemma added: “We are having a slice of garlic bread, I’m not going to lie.”

Offering inspiration to her followers, she said: “If any of you are out there thinking, I want to change for the better. I want to cut down on meat, I’m going to show you how to cook this recipe.”

Gemma didn’t show off the finished result, but she did offer a shot of a batch of rather unappetising-looking tofu that seemed to have gone a little wrong.

Tagging diet doctor Gillian McKeith in the story, Gemma asked: “When are you coming for dinner? I bet you’re proud right now.”

The news of Gemma’s health kick comes as her on/off boyfriend James Argent reportedly checked into a Thai retreat to work on his weight and addiction issues.
