Is Fleur East vegan? Was James McVey eating meat? I’m A Celebrity viewers left confused as ‘vegan’ campmates were spotted eating meat.
I'm A Celebrity viewers were confused as they watched contestants, who were reportedly vegan and vegetarian, tucking into meat and talking about dairy rich foods they enjoy such as 'scones'.
However, friends and family of the jungle line up have taken to social media to clear up any confusion about who is vegan in the Australian camp.
James: I really like scones The public: wait.. I thought you were vegan ?? #imaceleb— gabby (@gabby49837982) November 19, 2018
Super fit Fleur East has also stuck to a vegan diet on the outside for the past eight months, but has explained this is solely for fitness purposes.
It's believed she has given up the dietary routine whilst living in the I'm A Celeb jungle to allow her body to get the maximum amount of energy and nutrients it needs.
So, that article a few days ago claiming there's 3 vegans in camp, so no animal eating tasks but now they've been seen eating meat...— Felicity Sarah 🐰 (@bunnyandthegirl) November 19, 2018
I did some sleuthing and found this;
Fleur is vegan; but for fitness, not animals/environment.
James is a vegetarian.
Sair is neither! #ImACeleb pic.twitter.com/7pWPFxGoeF
It was also reported that Sair Khan is vegan, something her team on the outside has denied through her social media channels, saying they aren't sure where the rumours came from.
Sources had previously told tabloids that the three were exempt from partaking in this year's bush tucker trials that involved eating animals, however this is now being doubted as both Sair and Fleur are consuming meat whilst in the jungle.
