Yet another celebrity has adopted a vegan diet - this time it's British singer-songwriter James Arthur.
Arthur told the Mail he 'was miserable being overweight and has a new lease of life – and is now almost half the man he used to be'.
He added: "I've been vegetarian for a little while. But then I watched the Netflix documentary What The Health and now I'm vegan.
"I'm a singer and dairy stuff isn’t good for you. I've also got a Fitbit health tracker. I was carrying loads of weight and it was terrible being fat."
Headlining UK V Festival last weekend, the British singer asked for vegetarian Percy Pig sweets, and steamed broccoli at the Chelmsford site.
Demands also included a Dyson fan, Egyptian cotton towels in eggshell, and a UFC PlayStation game.
Plant Based News has contacted James Arthur for more information and will update.
