TOWIE star comes out on live TV

TOWIE star Charlie King came out as gay on ITV’s This Morning earlier today.

Sitting down with presenters, Phillip Schofield and Amanda Holden, the reality TV star said: “I had a girlfriend, she was the first person I spoke to and told. It was a proper relationship but I was very aware when I was seeing her things weren’t quite right. If something doesn’t click, it doesn’t click.”

Charlie has received lots of positive feedback and praise from the Twittersphere for his bravery and honesty.

Following his admission, the star said: “It feels so good to do this.”

Charlie used to date co-star, Gemma Collins, who earlier tweeted: “I always SEE what other people don’t and speak the TRUTH x.”
