Speaking with Attitude at the 2014 Attitude Awards last week, the 29-year-old former TOWIE star said he’s “overwhelmed” by the positive support he’s received from the public since coming out, adding “It was an ideal opportunity.”

He said:

“I just felt that I was ready to tell my story. Through the summer I have been in a relationship and I just wanted to draw upon that and be proud of where I am in my life right now.

People have followed my story on TOWIE, and they’ve questioned me and now it felt like the right time to put it out there.”

And even though he’s single, he’s not quite on the market just yet:

“I’m single now. I’m gutted, absolutely gutted. I’m a little bit overwhelmed by the response, because suddenly you get a hell of a lot of interest.

I’ve got loads of new Twitter followers and lots of Facebook friend requests. I’m going to let it die down a bit, I’m not going to go and get busy. I’m going to take my time.”

It’s ok, Charlie. We’re patient.


It’s a thank you from me ????????
