Ex-TOWIE Star Comes Out As Gay On This Morning!
Despite dating women, Charlie King has opened up about his sexuality to hosts Phillip Schofield and Amanda Holden...
Former The Only Way Is Essex star Charlie King has come out during an interview on This Morning.
After much speculation regarding his sexuality, King told Phillip Schofield and Amanda Holden he said: "Our stories will help people, there is a way out. You are not alone. I want to be a positive person, telling people 'you can do this'.
"I had a girlfriend, she was the first person I spoke to and told. It was a proper relationship but I was very aware when I was seeing her thing weren't quite right. If something doesn't click, it doesn't click."
King - who previously dated TOWIE co-star Gemma Collins - concluded: "I feel so positive about this."
After announcing he was gay, Charlie was inundated with messages of support on Twitter, with one user writing: "@itvthismorning coming out is one of the toughest things i ever did so i have huge respect for @CharlieKing85 good luck with everything!".
