Will Young has revealed he struggled to come to terms with his sexuality and even felt ‘terrified’ at the prospect of living a homosexual lifestyle.

The Leave Right Now singer came to fame after winning talent show Pop Idol back in 2002 and came out publicly after his win.

Speaking to Attitude magazine the star revealed his overwhelming fear of being gay and how it ultimately prevented him from feeling sexual until his late 20’s.

‘I was terrified of being gay so I didn’t really feel sexual until I was about 26.

I wasn’t really having sex, so I was quite inhibited. I feel like I’ve reached a place that I’m happy with, worked out things I will never do. It’s taken me years to figure that out.’

Will, now 32, has been given a new lease of life and confidence “I love getting older. These days, I look after myself more and don’t drink as much and try not to smoke as much. I’m more responsible towards anyone in business or friendships. I think that shift is quite a pleasant one.’
