The Welsh singer-turned-actor, ‘H’ whose real name is Ian Watkins has confirmed that he is gay, as he got ready to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Former Steps singer quoted,
I come from a small valley in Wales and it just wasn’t the thing to do to be gay. It’s a bit of a cliche – but I was the only gay in the village.
Watkins, 30, grew up in Llwyniphia in Rhondda, Wales, has been secretly dating his former manager for 10 years. The pair kept their relationship secret because the British singer feared fans’ reactions to the revelation, especially in his hometown in Wales. Duo split up a few months ago.
But Watkins told his parents and friends about his sexuality when he was 21. He said,
I could never have done this (come out) years ago, never … But I’m comfortable with who I am now and I want everyone to know.
I feel like a weight’s coming off my shoulders. It’s nice. I’m glad I’m doing this and I feel it’s the right time.
According to the reports of The Sun, Watkins will be joining other celebrities in the Big Brother house tomorrow.
So all guys need to be cautious at the Big Brother house!!!
