UK TV Star Duncan James opens up about being Gay

  • Published in TV

UK TV Star and boyband member, Duncan James has opened up about his sexuality in a candid interview on TV show - Loose Women, saying that coming out was "the best thing he ever did".

Duncan is best known for being a member of boyband Blue, but he is currently starring in Hollyoaks as detective Ryan Knight.

Fans of the soapie will know that his character Ryan is currently hiding his sexuality, after it was revealed he was cheating with Kyle Kelly on the night his wife Amy Barnes died. (ooooer!)

And after reflecting on his character's storyline with the Loose Women panel, Duncan started to open up about his own experience.

"After years of carrying this secret inside me, I wanted to be who I am", he explained of coming out. "I wanted acceptance. I carried this burden on my shoulders for so many years.

"I was worried about what the fans would think, I was worried about family and friends, and I was living a lie really. It was the best thing I ever did.

"I did a story in a newspaper about coming out and it was one of the best things that could have happened."

On the reaction he received, Duncan added: "I thought people would say horrible things, but nothing happened. I just had positivity, love and support.

"It's so important for people to feel comfortable with who they are and to come out and feel proud of who they are.

"I was very lucky that I had wonderful response from everybody and it made me feel happy that I could be me.

"We are living in 2017 now and it shouldn't be a problem anymore."

The Potbelleez Headline Sleaze Ball 2008

  • Published in Latest
Tickets are now on sale for Sydney’s most spectacular costume party. Scoundrels, deviants and mutants can now secure their place for the sexiest and most creative party of the year, Sleaze Ball 2008 –Villains’ Lair.

The full line-up for the party will be announced over the coming weeks, but New Mardi Gras can now reveal the DJs who will play the Hordern Pavilion on October 4th.

Headliners the Potbelleez will be joined by Alan Thompson, Sveta, Mark Murphy and Deepchild. They will perform alongside big production shows, roving entertainment and the Project Sleazeway costume competition.

The Potbelleez are the “fastest rising stars of the dance scene” according to Rolling Stone magazine. Dishing up breathtaking DJ sets over 6 decks, the Potbelleez have proved their ability to make a dancefloor swoon.

Their biggest hit “Don’t Hold Back” was in the top 40 for 23 weeks and the last year has seen them touring widely, DJing alongside the likes of Armand Van Helden, Frankie Knuckles, Axwell and Roger Sanchez.

“The Potbelleez were one of the stars of Mardi Gras 2008 when they rocked the Forum,” said NMG Chair David Imrie. “We had no hesitation in bringing them back to give them a bigger audience in the Hordern.”

“We’ve had great feedback on this year’s theme. After the enormous success of last year’s Zirkus people’s expectations are high, but we’re confident we’ll be able to take it up a level again,” said Imrie.

Tickets are available from Ticketek outlets, at www.ticketek.com.au and by phone on 13 2849. Prices are $99 for New Mardi Gras members, $119 for non-members and $79 for concessions.
