A star from summer smash hit reality show Love Island has announced she will be going vegan.

Kady McDermott made the announcement on her Twitter account.

She will be transitioning slowly – first going meat-free, then dropping all animal products entirely.

‘Determined’

Taking to Twitter, she wrote: “First day of being a vegetarian starts tomorrow then slowly go onto being a vegan… Determined!”

Lots of her followers jumped into praise and encourage the star.

Hayley skelton? said: “Congratulations… I’m almost there too. Follow Lucy Watson on Instagram she’s great for ideas.”

Relentless Vegan added: “?I find everything about veganism fascinating. Learn about the animals plight, environmental issues, and the human health side.”

Criticism

But of course there was some criticism too.

Simon Cork? said: “That’s what vegans do, they tell everyone.”

Bernadette Reynolds? added: “I don’t photograph my food. Vegans tend to bore everyone to death. 

“What do ya want? A medal?”

Problems

McDermott admitted that she was already missing some foods, tweeting: “So update on my first day yesterday as a vegetarian, it was fine although this morning I slightly struggled as I normally have smoked salmon.”

But again, she was inundated with helpful vegans making tasty suggestions.

Despite these issues, McDermott seems determined to make the transition, and has started reading vegan literature.

She said: “I’ve also downloaded Eating Animals [by Jonathan Safran Foer] on my kindle yesterday which I’ve started reading, thanks for the recommendations guys.”
