She Snorkels

McKenna is spending time in the Maldives, which means she is enjoying the gorgeous beaches. One of the ways she is enjoying the water is by going snorkeling. McKenna posted this series of photos and videos on Instagram of herself snorkeling in the ocean, and seeing all the creatures who live there. She captioned the post, "Entering a whole other world… swipe to see me swim with turtles. It took me 2 weeks to get into the deep sea & build this confidence… one of the best days of my life so far."

Another aquatic physical activity McKenna is doing in the Maldives is going stand up paddling. She posted this reel on Instagram of herself on the board, naturally setting the video to "Under The Sea" from The Little Mermaid. McKenna captioned the reel, "Morning paddle board with the baby sharks."


She Doesn't Eat Gluten

McKenna is open about some of her dietary restrictions, one of which is her gluten intolerance. She has even written a cookbook called, Can You Make That Gluten Free? In her Instagram announcement of the book, McKenna wrote, "Years of showing you guys my recipes on here, hundreds of lovely messages weekly asking am I ever going to release one? And here it is! I'm very proud of myself!"


She Calls Out Body Shamers

In 2017, McKenna was struggling with her celiac disease and IBS, which led to her losing a lot of weight, and secretly going to the hospital. Unfortunately, this led to a lot of people body-shaming her. In an interview with The Sun, McKenna called out said body-shamers, saying, "People need to realize I'm always going to have problems with this and not troll me … it's a serious thing and it's life-changing."


She Manages Her IBS

McKenna is open about having IBS, and tells MailOnline that she makes sure to manage her symptoms, even if it means giving up on a night out. "When I get a really bad bout of painful bloating and that urgency that I need to go to the toilet, and I'm out on a night out with my friends, there's been times when I've had to leave and go back," she says. "Because there's no way I want to be in that situation where I'm in a club and really unwell. It can be really awful."
