Union J band member George Shelley has opened up about his sexuality in a new video on YouTube.

In a video titled “I’ve got something to talk about”, the singer revealed that during his time on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! he decided it was time to be true to himself.

He said: “I’ve been reading a lot of speculation online as to whether I’m straight, or gay, or bi, and all these labels are a little bit old fashioned, which is why I’m not going to label it myself.

“I’ve had girlfriends that I’ve loved, and they’ve been amazing periods of my life, but I’ve also had boyfriends, and I just want you to know that whether I decide to be with a girl next, or be with a guy next, that it’s because I love them.

“So yeah, there it is. I’ve not changed, I’m still me, I’m still the same person I’ve always been, I’m just becoming a little bit less scared of being myself, and that makes me quite happy.”

Congratulations, George!
