Will Young has taken to Instagram to hit out at TV star Spencer Matthews
Will Young has slammed Spencer Matthews for asking who "the least gay" person is on 'This Is My House'.
The 42-year-old pop star has taken to social media to hit out at Spencer, 32, admitting he felt deeply offended by his comments on the BBC show.
He wrote on Instagram: "ASKING 'WHO IS THE LEAST GAY' ON @BBCIPLAYER @BBC #THISISMYHOUSEBBC1 I FIND COMPLETELY OFFENSIVE . WHAT DOES 'LEAST GAY' MEAN? MOST 'MASCULINE' , LEAST 'EFFEMINATE' 'FOR F**** SAKE @BBC DON'T YOU REALISE IT IS COMPLETELY REAFFIRMING OFFENSIVE AND SHAMING STEREOTYPES , I'M GAY,TAKE IT UP THE BUM AND LIKE FOOTBALL AND CARS. MIGHT BLOW YOUR MIND .... @SPENCERMATTHEWS (sic)"
Will previously revealed he was "aghast" when radio host Chris Moyles made homophobic comments against the singer on his birthday.
The pop star recalled the moment in 2009 when Chris mocked his sexuality.
He shared: "It still makes me feel sad in a way, because it did affect how important I felt my sexuality was, and because I didn't stand up for myself.
"So even though I was like, 'Oh, it doesn't matter', it did, actually. It was really bad. Really bad."
Will admitted to being particularly shocked by the incident because he and Chris were on "friendly terms" at the time.
He said: "BBC Radio 1 breakfast show DJ Chris Moyles decided to embark on a rampage of homophobia against me – on my birthday no less.
"It was something that left me aghast, especially as he and I were on friendly terms."
The controversy happened when Chris amended the lyrics to his hit song 'Evergreen'.
He said: "It's my birthday, gonna wear my new dress tonight. And I smell nice. I've had a shower and I've shaved my legs. Going out later, might go to Nob-oooh for dinner."
