We know your secret: A third of vegetarians eat meat when they're drunk.

Look, it’s no secret us humans don’t make the best decisions after a wine, or four.

I’m only drinking vodka sodas, we say. I’m just staying for a few, we say.

Therefore please know it’s without a scrap of judgement that we must inform you… apparently, one in three vegetarians eat meat EVERY TIME they’re, erm, inebriated.

According to a British study of over 1,700 vegetarian participants, 37 per cent of veggies eat meat every time they’re drunk on a night out.

But please, if you’re one of these vegetarians, don’t stress. Twenty-six per cent of your fellow vegos said they do the same ‘fairly often’, and 22 per cent said ‘rarely’, which doesn’t mean never now, does it? Sixty-nine per cent of the vegetarians surveyed also said they hadn’t fessed up to their secret habit.

As for which animal product of choice these rogue vegos admitted to indulging in? Unsurprisingly, kebabs came as the number one choice, with beef burgers, bacon, fried chicken and pork sausages not far behind.

So to all the vegos out there - let's just all agree to not discuss our late night snack choices. Ever.
