    I do hope it wasn’t pressure from some tabloid SCUM.

    This is rather unexpected. I am very happy for him gaining the courage to come out, but can’t help feeling sorry for his wife.

    At least the Holly rumours can finally be put to bed.

    Now, have you heard about Phil and Rylan?

    'The wife always knows'.

    I presume Holly definitely KNEW.

    From the statement it sounds like Holly knew.

    I always wonder about those who come out later in life. I guess that's based entirely on my own experience - I always knew. I couldn't even imagine struggling like that for so many years.

    I have a friend who's Dad came out in his 40s, while we were 16. It was wild.

    Cwej hasn't started the vote yet. Do you want to nominate him now or hold him for February?

    You mean for being a sycophantic twat and giving Johnson an easy ride whilst ripping Corbyn to shreds? Yes.

    Am I right in thinking that he has probably been hiding it since puberty? You don’t just turn gay in later life, do you?

    He's been famous since the mid 1980s. I imagine he made his choices (you may recall a Blue Peter presenter was sacked for being actively gay in the 1980s) and just stuck with them all this time.

    It’s just when he is married with two children, and if his wife knew aswell, he surely didn’t come out to her until much later on.

    After we lost Dale Winton so painfully in 2018, we needed another obnoxious Tory TV queen. Best of luck to him.

    I look forward to the Gordon the Gopher #MeToo exposé. Bet he was used like a chew toy back in the 80s.

    I don’t know the background story, but my guess is that it’s not about knowing that you’re gay or not, it’s about accepting it and not denying that part of yourself; a process that can take years for some, especially older generations.

    Oh come on, Andi Peters didn't NEED to. He couldn't have been gayer if he'd got the poppers out while interviewing Scissor Sisters.

    The closet is a shite place to be, especially when you feel that it's genuinely dangerous to be anywhere else.

    Not giving him a by for *that* Boris interview but he has also given some people a chance to speak for themselves on that show who struggled to find that opportunity elsewhere (i.e. he was one of the first people to give Katie Hopkins a hard time).

    My Mum told me years ago that Philip Schofield was gay - she remembers reading about it. So I was more surprised to find out he has a wife and children.

    I finally experience the Mandela Effect and it’s wasted on this gobshite.

    I always assumed he was gay and was mildly surprised whenever it was that I learned he had a wife and kids.

    I got told he was gay by a guy who ran a magazine I volunteered at when I was 17. I got told Phillip had a thing for cruising with a hoodie on. Anyway, I am looking to Ruth for guidance on how to act in these sensitive times.

    I knew on a subconscious level for years but not really on a conscious level until my mid-twenties. You only know your own experiences, really. Having experienced some attraction to guys, I wasn’t aware that it was supposed to feel more than that.
