“You know this has been bothering me for a very long time,” he said. “Everybody does this at their own speed when the time is right.”
“All you can be in your life is honest with yourself and I was getting to the point where I knew I wasn’t honest with myself. I was getting to the point where I didn’t like myself very much because I wasn’t being honest with myself.
“[Coming out] is my decision. This is absolutely my decision. It was something I knew that I had to do. I don’t know what the world will be like now. I don’t know how this will be taken or what people will think.”
The presenter however added that hes not ready for a relationship.
