Charlie King is the latest in high profile public coming outs… and we applaud all of them.

Talking to Phillip Schofield and Amanda Holden live on This Morning, Charlie King, who is famous for his stint on the hit reality programme The Only Way Is Essex revealed that he is gay and he feels ‘positive’ about speaking the truth about his sexuality.

During his time on TOWIE however King had said that he was not gay – but has now admitted that he has fully come to terms with his sexuality.

He explained,

‘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.

‘I feel so positive about this.’

He went on to say,

‘(It’s) taken me a good few years to come to get here now to be able to say, I’m Charlie, I’m 29 years old and I’m a gay man… and I’m comfortable with that.
