TOWIE’s Charlie King Comes Out On Live TV

TOWIE’s Charlie King Comes Out On Live TV

National Television Awards 2013 - Arrivals - LondonCharlie King has come out as a gay man.

“It’s been a long time coming. For the last few months I’ve been sitting on the fence about it,” said King. “I feel that I’m ready now. Even though I’m nervous sitting here, I know that the time is now.”

King went on to say that the ITVBe programme focused on his relationship with Bobby Norris because he himself wasn’t sure where he belonged.

The Only Way Is Essex followed that story line about that subject because I never really knew where I belonged or knew where I fitted in,” he added. “It was something that I had to address. It’s taken me a good few years to get here now and be able to say, ‘I’m Charlie, I’m 29 years old and I’m a gay man’, and I’m very comfortable with that.

“Internally, I’m struggling a little bit. I don’t really know where I belong,” he explained. “I’ve not had many relationships, I seem to be more comfortable around gay people, hence why I had a very good relationship with Bobby, and my best friend in my life away from TOWIE is gay.”

Speaking about his family’s reaction, he said: “My mum has seen that I’ve struggled for a few years. I was really badly bullied at school. She wanted to see me happy.

    hi Charlie, good looking out!! I dont know you, but … everyday before you step outta the house, thank your God,god or stars or whatever it is you believe in that you were born in a modern, tolerant society. if you were born Nigerian, goodlooking as you are & at 29, by now your parents and uncles and aunts and other busybody family members would have ramped up their efforts to see you ‘happily married and settled down’ with a befitting young woman and thus would begin your journey into a personal corner of hell known and inhabited by you alone … so you and Richard Quest both, pause for a moment and offer up a few words of gratitude …
