George Shelley has addressed his sexuality in a Youtube video.
"I want to start 2016 with a clean slate. I don't feel that I should hide anything,” Shelley began. "I went into the jungle and it gave me a lot of time to reflect on what is important to me. And what is important to me is that I should be myself."
"I've been reading a lot of speculation online as to whether I'm straight or gay or bi. It’s all these labels and it's a little bit old fashioned and this is why I'm not going to label it myself. I've had girlfriends that I've loved. But I've also had boyfriends.”
"I want you to know that whether I decide to be with a girl next or be with a guy next it's because I love them. It shouldn't be a big deal. I don't want to be scared anymore, I don't want to feel like I can't be myself because I'm worried about what somebody might be saying about me. or the label thing.”
"I've not changed, I'm still me. I'm becoming a little bit less scared of being myself, and that makes me quite happy.” Last year Shelley appeared on ITV reality series ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here’, where he finished in second place.
