Journalist, broadcaster and I’m A Celeb star, Iain Lee comes out as bisexual.
Iain Lee, who came third in 2017’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here has come out as bisexual while on his TalkRadio show. The broadcaster had been talking about seeing a therapist after a serious car accident and the breakdown of his marriage saying, “He’s helped me realise that I’m probably bisexual,
“So I guess I’m coming out. This is me coming out, I suppose is how they would call it, at the age of 46, and I’m terrified by it.”
Taking to social media, Iain, wrote, “This week I kind of came out on air as bi and the support has been nuts. So like thanks. I’ll probably delete this tweet as I still feel embarrassed and ashamed and weird but I’m working on it.”
