British boy band singer Duncan James has confessed he is bisexual and has bedded several men in the past.
James, a member of vocal four-piece Blue, has fathered a child with his ex-girlfriend and publicly dated numerous females, including Spice Girl Geri Halliwell and Love Actually star Martine MCCutcheon.
But after recently reuniting with his band mates for a series of comeback concerts, the singer has decided to publicly admit he has had relationships with both men and women - because he's sick of keeping his sexuality under wraps.
He tells British newspaper the News of the World, "I was living a secret life. I went through a process of asking what the f**k am I? Am I gay? Am I straight? Am I bi? That's why I was so frightened about talking. Now, in my early 30s, I know who I am and I'm proud of who I am.
"I don't want to hide anymore. I don't feel I should launch a big comeback with Blue hiding this - don't want to go back to the time in the band when I felt I had to keep certain things quiet. I want to be out and say I've had relationships with men as well as women."
