Quorn again: Chris and Gwyneth

Some of us turn to vats of ice cream, the demon drink, or even our friends for support when we go through a break-up but Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has ditched his veggie lifestyle and gone back on the hard stuff after his split from Gwyneth Paltrow.

37-year-old Martin says he has forsaken Paltrow's vegetarian diet just months after the couple announced their decision to "consciously uncouple." after ten years of marriage. 

However, he also says he still encourages their ten-year-old daughter, Apple, to stick to vegetarianism

Martin told BBC Radio 2: "I am not really vegetarian. I eat meat. I was vegetarian for a long time but, for various reasons, I changed.

"My daughter has been a vegetarian since she was born. I keep getting tempted to go back to vegetarianism but I don't eat too much meat."

However he says changing his diet was a personal choice. "The honest answer why I changed is because I thought you can only eat something that you should be able to kill.

"I mean, could you kill a fish? I wouldn't like it but I probably could eat the fish . . . or a giraffe."
