In his most outspoken interview ever, Christopher Biggins talks to The Big Issue about his thoughts on bisexuality.
Celebrity Actor Christopher Biggins claims that people use bisexuality as a cover because they are scared to admit that they are gay – and that many women’s lives are ruined because of it.
In a startlingly frank interview with the latest issue of The Big Issue (released today), the former I’m A Celebrity winner says:
“I think the people who fear homosexuality most are the ones who could be gay. The world is full of bisexuals because that’s the way they want to do it. What do they do? They ruin a woman’s life. It’s so wrong, because you’re not owning up to what you are. You lead a double life so how can you be a real person?”
And Biggins, who was once in a heterosexual marriage himself, goes on to lament how hard it was being gay in his younger days, saying that he could never have come out when he was doing children’s’ TV because he would have been considered a paedophile. He says:
“I wish it had been easier being gay when I was younger. There were pressures then. I was doing lots of children’s TV, like Rentaghost, and if you were gay in those days you were considered to be a paedophile. I didn’t really understand my sexuality when I was a teenager. I knew I had vague inclinations towards other men but it wasn’t a big thing.
“Then in my early twenties I met a girl and married her, because I thought that was the thing to do. Ridiculous. I hadn’t thought it through and of course it didn’t work. Now I’ve happily been with Neil (Neil Sinclair, his civil partner) for 21 years and that’s how it should have been.”
