Is Joe Lycett vegan?

Joe first opened up about trying a vegan diet in 2019.

He told the Mirror at the time: “I’ve been vegan during the week since January, so I’m rather fibrous. And they don’t come out delicately, they come out like a punch.

“All of my relationships have died because I’m so gassy. I enjoy it, that’s the thing. And I didn’t do it for moral reasons, I did it for vanity. I did Veganuary and dry January and quite enjoyed it, but I did miss meat and drinking."

However, Joe confessed he found it tough to quit meat completely.
