Duncan James Opens Up About His Sexuality
Star reveals secret relationship with male dancer...
Speaking on The Big Reunion, he said he was ‘so frightened’ when a tabloid newspaper revealed he was bisexual back in 2009 that he fled the country.
James revealed he struggled to come to terms with his sexuality because of his religious upbringing, stating: "Being brought up as a strict Catholic, the whole gay thing in my head was bad and wrong.
"And it wasn't until I was in the band, being around other gay guys, understanding that actually you can be gay. It's alright to like other guys.”
He also revealed he had a secret three year relationship with one of Blue’s male backing dancers.
The One Love singer confessed: “I actually really liked him and I couldn't tell anybody.
"We would meet up in secret places; hotels or wherever. I used to ring him up paranoid, 'Have you told anybody? Have you told anybody?' and he'd be like, 'I'm not going to tell anybody, I promise you'.
"I broke his heart to the point where he couldn't be with me in that way any more and ended it.
"And it was at that moment when he was gone out of my life, I realised about myself."
