Gok Wan


Much-loved stylist and TV star, Gok Wan, took to Instagram yesterday evening to share this thoughts on the 'lads' who felt it necessary to verbally abuse him while passing him in the airport.

In a succinct but poignant message to the men, Gok wrote: "Lads at the airport. When I walk past you and you mutter 'Queer Faggot', I hear you."

"I don't turn around and answer you because you are stupid," he continued. "I don't throw anything at you because I would be embarrassed. I don't even look at you because you are not worth my face."

Taking the high road, Gok wished them well, before making reference to their upcoming trip with a reminder that they too may fall victim to verbal abuse at some point.

"I sincerely hope you don't get any abuse whilst you're away. Maybe for just looking a little different, maybe for not being a local… maybe for just being you."

And the clincher?

Gok finished the message with a sassy 'Bon Voyage D*ckheads."

The TV personality's page has been flooded with message of support since the upload, with one fan writing: "You're awesome and they're obviously bitter and insecure."

Another added: "Idiots! If they were to spread the love like you do, think of the joy they would bring instead of hatred."

Well said.



Some people swear by Tinder while others – AKA people who tell the truth – know that more often than not it's simply a way to while away a rainy Tuesday night.

Keeping it real in the best possible way, everyone's favourite stylist, Gok Wan, revealed that his mates don't hold out much hope that he'll find his Prince Charming on the wildly popular dating app.

Taking to Twitter this afternoon, the uber-stylish television presenter told fans and followers that he planned to spice up his love life, but his mates were having none of it.

Outlining the grand plan, 41-year-old Gok announced: 'I'm joining Tinder' and was met with 'If you want to feel disappointed then just pay me and I'll reject you every day."

Even though Gok obvs took the response in the tone it was intended, some of the star's loyal followers felt compelled to offer some advice when it came to the fashionista's love life.

"Darling, you have far too much class to be on that trashy site…unless you like a bit of trash every now and then," wrote one.

Trash? We think we're offended! 




Let's be honest, a lot of our blokes could do with a crash course in romance.

Don't get us wrong, we KNOW they're a sound bunch and they definitely TRY to please us on the romance front, but we're women and no amount of romance is ever really enough.

What? We saw The Notebook, and it gave us unrealistic expectations, so sue us.

Proving that he is definitely on the same page as us when it comes to this is everyone's favourite stylist and television presenter, Gok Wan.

Taking to Twitter today, the 41-year-old Off The Rails presenter shared what has to be the most perfect moment in a couple's relationship, tweeting: "Just overheard a couple in my hotel. The man says the woman "You're more and more beautiful the more I look at you'." (sic)

Just like us, the lovely Gok's little heart gave a lurch at the sheer BEAUTY of the moment and he went on to tweet:" #notfair #wantone."

Surprisingly, the tweet divided Gok's followers with some gushing over the sentiment and others suggesting that the couple must be having a dirty weekend away because they're…shhhh…having an affair.

Ah lads! 


Presenter Gok Wan has opened up about his long-running struggle with anorexia.

The How To Look Good Naked star spoke during an open discussion at Birmingham City University about his battle with the eating disorder, which started in his early twenties.

"I struggle with anorexia every day. It's like a parasite that won't go away," he told the students, before adding that his extensive knowledge of the disorder has helped him to deal with it better. "Realising it doesn't go away is the biggest weapon," he said.

The star began dieting excessively after reaching over twenty stone in his late teens, and while he is in recovery now, it wasn't always so easy.

Gok became visibly upset while talking about his battle with anorexia, which he said was prompted by routine bullying during his school years for being overweight. However he said that some of his darkest moments have motivated him to work harder at his career.

"When I was being bullied I wished the bullies a terrible fate. But over time I’ve forgiven them as without them I wouldn’t be who I am today… In order to get through the dark times you need to remember that life is short and therefore you really need to focus on the good stuff," the star said. 

"The little things that worry you are those that will ultimately fuel your success."

Gok also spoke about the importance of self-confidence and the courage to be different. "‘Identity is really important and it’s not something that should be overlooked," he said.

Very wise words.



Some of the names involved in the Comic Relief version of the Great British Bake Off have been revealed by a source calling the special “absolutely hilarious”.

Filming now and airing in January, the source named Jonathan Ross, Gok Wan and model Abbey Clancy as three of the baking contestants.

While the stars are very entertaining, apparently their baking skills aren't quite as strong as the regular series contestant.

“Jonathan was being a real joker on set. He came out with some tasty double entendres that would make even Mel and Sue blush,” the source told the Mirror.

“Unfortunately, his baking didn't make quite the same impact.”

Gok Wan seems also seems to be having trouble in the tent, with the steely-eyed Paul Hollywood condemning his baking as having “more style than substance”. Not good news for Gok considering he has released a cookbook!

We still have a few episodes of the real Bake Off to go, but it's good to know we wont have to wait too long for our next baking fix.
