George Shelley Comes Out As Bisexual And Ferne McCann’s Response Is Beautiful
George Shelley has revealed that he is bisexual in a heart warming and honest video.
The Union J singer revealed that he wanted to start 2016 with a ‘clean slate’ and had decided to clear up online speculation about his sexuality once and for all.
Speaking to his fans, George said:
"I want to start 2016 with a clean slate. I don't feel that I should hide anything. I've been reading a lot of speculation online as to whether i'm straight or gay or bi. It’s all these labels and it's a little bit old fashioned and this is why I'm not going to label it myself. I've had girlfriends that I've loved. But I've also had boyfriends. I want you to know that whether I decide to be with a girl next or be with a guy next it's because I love them. It shouldn't be a big deal. I don't want to be scared anymore, I don't want to feel like I can't be myself because I'm worried about what somebody might be saying about me. I've not changed, I'm still me.”
The I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here runner up was previously linked to fellow campmate Ferne McCann after the two struck up a close bond in the jungle together.
Taking to Instagram, Ferne had nothing but love and support for George’s admission, posting this cute picture of the two.
Queen of the jungle Vicky Pattison also praised her friend on his courage.
Congratulations to George for being brave enough to be you.
