I just dont get it.

hmm

I don't think it's an act, straight men can be camp. He does play it up though.

fastdaytears Sun 31-May-15 20:23:24

It is wrong that I have a bit of a thing about him? Obviously I would not be admitting this without internet anonymity...
He's single now isn't he grin

BarbarianMum Sun 31-May-15 20:23:53

Does he need a reason?

CoogerAndDark Sun 31-May-15 20:23:55

He talks about it in his autobiography.

QuiteLikely5 Sun 31-May-15 20:25:02

What does he say about it in his book?

smellyfishead Sun 31-May-15 20:25:47

since when was DW straight?!

BabyGanoush Sun 31-May-15 20:25:50

Is he single?

EponasWildDaughter Sun 31-May-15 20:25:58

I really thought he was gay until very recently.

What does he say in his autobiography then? (in a nut shell obviously)

M00nUnit Sun 31-May-15 20:28:32

He's just being himself. I don't see the problem.

XiCi Sun 31-May-15 20:29:29

I imagine he is very camp because he is gay. Noone actually believed his marriage was for real did they?

TheoriginalLEM Sun 31-May-15 20:30:03

I'd do him but id make him wear my undies first! hes a very funny man

NorbertDentressangle Sun 31-May-15 20:30:07

Camp or macho, gay or straight....either way there's something about him that makes my skin crawl. It's his slimy, creepy smile I think.

SweetPeaPods Sun 31-May-15 20:30:28

I thought that was one of the reasons why the marriage broke down?

Trills Sun 31-May-15 20:30:38

In the future, straight men will be allowed to be camp and gay men will be allowed to be macho, and everyone will live in harmony.

And children will be baffled that this was ever a thing.

AllKnickersNoFurCoat Sun 31-May-15 20:31:06

yeh, I was surprised when he got married. They've split up now though.

iklboo Sun 31-May-15 20:31:13

Not all gay men are camp.

ssd Sun 31-May-15 20:31:19

I dont think he's gay, his ex was a model

anyway, what did it say in his autobiography about it then, am genuinely puzzled, he's putting it on so much on BGT but I'm wondering why confused

TheoriginalLEM Sun 31-May-15 20:31:27

Straight men can be camp-ive known (not intinately) at least very camp very gay men. Howeve, does it matter??????

LikeIcan Sun 31-May-15 20:31:57

He gives me the creeps too.

Although I find him ( occasionally ) very funny

nancy75 Sun 31-May-15 20:32:07

I think he has always said he would be happy with a man or woman, he does camp it up on the show. I have met him with my dd a couple of times and he does seem like a genuinely really nice guy. My dd (age 9) idolises him!

TheoriginalLEM Sun 31-May-15 20:32:14

*very camp very straight ffs!!!

FiveExclamations Sun 31-May-15 20:32:22

Because "campness" or "butchness" is a facet of personality that may be independent of someone's sexuality and/or gender identity and/or a bunch of other stuff?

It is part of the magic that is him.

Hassled Sun 31-May-15 20:32:36

I find him a bit menacing. I don't know why - in theory he's fine. There's something of the night about him.
