Greg Rutherford is a gem. We’ve literally fallen in love with him whilst he’s been on Strictly Come Dancing, but some people have been asking – is Greg Rutherford gay?
With his appearance on Strictly Greg Rutherford has been getting people hot under the collars and some have taken to the Internet to find out if the sports star is actually gay.
Well sorry to disappoint boys, but Greg is in a relationship with Susie Verrill and they have a son together who was born in 2014. They named their baby boy, Milo.
In Episode 2, the judges went to town on the size of Greg’s butt… but to be honest, we’re not complaining.
He proved himself to be a bit of a gay ally though in 2015 when he had a Twitter spat with Tyson Fury after Fury’s controversial comments about gay people and the BBC made Fury a Sports Personality of the Year candidate.
‘I wanted to speak with the BBC about sharing a stage with somebody that had views that are so strongly against my own. After doing so, I can confirm that reports that I am withdrawing from the ceremony are not true.
‘The BBC have been hugely supportive in hearing my own views and I am hugely honoured and privileged to be included on the shortlist for such a prestigious event alongside so many remarkable sporting personalities, the majority of whom I will proudly say to my son I had the chance to meet.’
The 29-year-old is most famous his long jump ability. He has represented the UK at Olympics, World and European Championships, and England at the Commonwealth Games.
