Collabro's Jamie Lambert reveals he is gay

They won the hearts of millions when they beat the cream of the crop in this year's Britain's Got Talent.

And now the band's tallest – and hottest – member Jamie Lambert has revealed he is indeed gay, but no one bothered to ask him during the show.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Dan Wootton from The Sun today, he said: "No one asked – I have nothing to hide from anybody. I think it's really important that all gay people in the public eye just talk about it.

"The more that happens, the more normal it becomes.

"I remember when Stephen Gately from Boyzone came out and it was a really massive deal, but I think nowadays it's about being comfortable in your own skin and comfortable with who you fall in love with.

"It doesn't make a difference if that's a man or a woman."

Jamie also told GT in an exclusive gay press interview: "I think your sexuality is just a part of who you are, but it doesn’t make who you are. I think it’s really sad that people just get labeled as ‘the gay one’ or ‘the gay diver’.

"I think that it’s really important that people know it’s just a small part of me."
