“In spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone, and they make me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great,” Tom expressed. “That someone is a guy. It did take me by surprise a little bit. It was always in my head that something like that could happen. But it wasn’t until spring this year that things just clicked. It felt right and I thought ‘Okay’ and my whole world changed there and then. Of course I still fancy girls but right now I’m dating a guy and I couldn’t be happier.”

    That sound you heard is 200,000 English girls’ jaws hitting the floor. And they harassed that US swimmer in TX that he dated for no reason.

    Hobo city Says:

    I think he’s gay (not bi) cause my gaydar is spot on. He just can’t alienate his female fan base. But come on, any chick who doesn’t know this dude is gay is as deluded as those Claymates that were fans of Clay Aiken. Seriously, nothing wrong with it as long as you’re honest.

    Gee, what a shock…it was always obvious with him.
