You’d be forgiven for thinking the world of UK celebrity Gemma Collins was consumed with champagne, shopping sprees and trips to Marbella, but it appears she is also consumed by conspiracy theories. Particularly reptilian ones. Gemma confessed on her podcast recently that she’s a firm believer in the dark, long-running theory that Lizard People live among us. Admitting it was a ‘little weird’, Gemma said she is fascinated by the idea that shape-shifters really do exist – and she even added her own spin on the conspiracy. She thinks the Lizard People have gone undetected for so long because they’ve been using a secret network of underground tunnels- also allegedly used by Queen Elizabeth – to scurry about. Theorists say pop superstar Madonna could be one of them as well, along with Katy Perry and Angelina Jolie. Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and the late Michael Jackson have also been accused of having a scaly under-skin. The concept of half-reptile/half-human people even existing is rather bizarre, and in most ways flies right into the face of what we know about science and biology – so why do, by some estimates, up to 12 million people worldwide believe lizard people are among us? Where did this conspiracy theory even begin?
