Jodie Marsh insists she couldn’t be happier living without her former six-pack, as she’s totally content running her £1 million animal shelter funded by her OnlyFans.
The former glamor model and bodybuilder, 44, decided to pursue her dreams of opening a sanctuary after her late mother Kristina was diagnosed with cancer in 2020.
Television personality Jodie runs a charity on her farm, funded by her OnlyFans and costing £4,000 a week, which cares for creatures such as emus, llamas, goats and guinea pigs, which she opened two years ago.
And she insists she’s delighted she made the decision to act as she realized there was more to life than a celebrity life when her mother fell ill.
She said The sun“You may recognize me as someone who used to be glamorous, sexy, bodybuilder and everything else, but now I’m just a farm girl and I don’t look that way.”

Jodie added, “The reason I’m fat now and don’t have a six pack is because I don’t have time to eat properly or even run errands. Never.
‘I used to cook healthy meals and now I don’t have time for that.
“I’m not exercising at the moment. I do not have time. It’s manic.’
The former Celebrity Big Brother star shared that she often talked about opening a sanctuary when she was retired or had enough money, but all she thought about was that it would be far in the future.
Her mother sadly passed away in September 2020 and never saw the shrine full of creatures.
However, she insisted that her parents would be “proud,” adding that she would have loved to see her fight for something she believes in so passionately.
Last month, Jodie revealed that the £1 million farm was overrun by RSPCA investigators.
The animal group arrived at the property as they were investigating claims that she brought her meerkat Mabel to the pub.

She took to Instagram and filmed the incident as it unfolded and cleared up the rumors about her animal, revealing that she couldn’t leave her alone as she would cry if she did and needed regular food as she was raising her.
She insisted at the time that the animals are properly cared for and criticized the RSPCA and Trading Standards for the investigation, claiming it happened because trolls were trying to shut down her charity.
Jodie revealed that during the two-hour investigation, officers also investigated claims that an emu had a tube stuck into his neck.
The glamor model shared that the tube saved the animal’s life as it was feeding them — and she also feared being arrested during the probe.
Also during the farm inspection, Jodie was asked if she wanted to keep a wild munchkin deer and told officers she took care of it because it had fallen into a pool nearby.
Speak against The sun previously on the pub incident with her meerkat, she said: ‘I went to my local pub, the Dukes Head, for a bit and took her because she cried when I left her – she was with me 24 hours a day.
“No one was fussing or complaining about her – everyone is very supportive of me, but I have a troll – I think it’s a woman – who is just out to cause trouble.
“The teams have inspected the shelter and asked about the meerkat incident.”

Jodie said on Instagram: ‘We just wasted 2 full hours of our day because of the RSPCA, APHA and a woman of trade standards.
She claimed, “And it’s all because of my obsessed deranged stalker. They showed up here and demanded to see our animals.’
The star continued, “They’ve been here for an hour because they’ve had reports that an emu is in distress because he has a tube down his neck.
“As you all know, emu would have died if we hadn’t given her tube feeding.
“The vet came by, the vet showed us what to do and we did everything we could to make her better and she’s eating on her own now.”
The glamor model also revealed that her farm was previously praised during an inspection by animal authorities.
However, Jodie intends to put the incident behind her and plans to move to a larger farm 20 minutes from Chelmsford.
She explained how she uses her money from OnlyFans to fund the project, but insisted she is never left with anything as her vet bills cost £10,000 a month plus £4,000 a week in other running costs.
But Jodie insists it’s the happiest she’s ever been, emphasizing, “I can’t explain the joy I feel every day of my life, the satisfaction, the sense of contentment, just knowing I’m doing something right.” .’
