Is Noel Fielding vegan?

No, Noel Fielding does not appear to be vegan. However, Noel was the inspiration behind the Vegan Week challenge on the Great British Bake Off.

The Great British Bake Off announced their first vegan week in 2018, and it was reportedly Noel’s idea to win over a millennial “snowflake” audience.

A representative for Channel 4 at the time said:

“When Noel put forward the idea producers leapt at the chance to try something different — especially as they think it’ll appeal to younger viewers. While the show has a loyal fanbase, those in charge are keen to snap up a different demographic.”
