Comedian, author, and actor, Russell Brand, has revealed his return to veganism, after first attempting the lifestyle back in 2011.

Brand, who recently appeared on the TV show The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up to Cancer, announced the news on social media.

He tweeted: “I’ve been baking like a maniac ever since. And I’m vegan now (again). #StandUpToCancer #GBBO @BritishBakeOff.”

The tweet, which gained over 3,000 likes, caught the attention of animal-rights organization PETA, who thanked Brand for ‘choosing the vegan life’.


In 2011, Brand’s now ex-wife, Katy Perry, tweeted: “Me & the Mr. just watched ‘Forks Over Knives’. You can get it on Netflix!” To which Brand wrote: “I’m now vegan, goodbye eggs, hello Ellen.”

Since then, Brand left the vegan movement and returned to consuming animal products.

‘Conflicting opinions’

The recent news of his re-transition to veganism has caused speculation on social media, with people asking the star to clarify his status.

One person replied to his 2011 tweet, saying: “This was a while ago now, yet in 2014 you asked for help in becoming vegan (The Trews). What’s the situation now – I’m trying to put to bed some conflicting opinions on your vegan status.”
