Former Mrs Brown’s Boys star Rory Cowan opens up about having ‘very bad relationship with food


FORMER Mrs Brown's Boys star Rory Cowan has opened up about his "very bad relationship with food".

The actor explained that he struggles to cook for himself and lockdown took away the option to eat in restaurants.

The Fair City star then lost the routine he had with meals and then struggled to eat anything at all.

He said: "Because I live on my own and I don't cook. By the time I've cooked something the hunger's gone off me.

"So for the last year really I have had a very bad relationship with food.

"I knew I was. Even if I bought a sandwich it got to the stage where I was opening the sandwich and taking things out.

"I would eat something like maybe half a Kitkat or something, just to get rid of the hunger and that would do me.

"And I knew it was wrong and I knew I should be cooking and I tried but by the time whatever it was, was cooked I'd say, 'I'm not hungry'.

"So I'd send out for takeaways...but I'd eat less than a quarter of it and the rest would go in the bin. Once the hunger was gone that was it."

Despite getting trolled over having a €21 sandwich at the Shelbourne hotel in Dublin recently, Rory said he's slowly getting back to a normal routine now that he can go out to eat again.

He said: "Last week I was talking to somebody and I realised it's four o'clock in the afternoon and I'd had nothing to eat all day because I just hadn't bothered.

"But now I can go out and go in somewhere and say, 'Can I have scrambled egg on toast'.

"For me to make scrambled egg, it's a simple thing, but I wouldn't be bothered, just wouldn't do it.

"And the hunger would be gone off me by the time it'd be made.

"So I can go out to places now and I can eat proper food and I've been eating protein which I haven't had any protein really for the last year."

Rory, 62, said that he will be seeking help for the issue.

The actor is delighted to be able to go out to eat again

He told Ray D'Arcy on RTE Radio 1: "There's nothing on me at all. I have to sort that out.

"When this is all finished I am going to have to go and see somebody - I don't know who I'm going to have to see but I'll find somebody to talk about this because I know it's wrong.

"But at the same time you can't stop yourself."
