Made In Chelsea's Ollie Locke has admitted coming out as bisexual on the E4 show was the ''hardest thing'' he's ever had to go through
Made In Chelsea's Ollie Locke says coming out as bisexual was the "hardest thing" he's ever had to do.
The long-haired lothario - who revealed he was attracted to men as well as women on the E4 show last night (30.05.11) - admitted he had "no intention" of telling the world his true feelings until his relationship with co-star Gabriella Ellis came to an end.
He said: "When the show started, I had no intention of coming out to the world. But as time passed and feelings changed, it started to become obvious that Gabriella and I were not working.
"I thought very hard about whether I should come out to everyone, and then I had to think about whether I would want to put it on a camera."
However, the 24-year-old reality TV star explained talking about his sexuality was a "small bullet" to take if it helps other people struggling in the same position.
Ollie added to heat magazine: "If you could help one person there who is struggling with life and make it better, in my eyes it's a very small bullet to take myself.
"Of course I thought about how it would make Gabriella feel, and I would never for a second hurt her, but it's something I had to do for myself."
