I was bullied in high school like Kurt, I was an outcast and I think maybe that I've had similar experiences so he's much more relatable and the emotion is coming from a real place.

As E4 takes a break for the smash hit series and the whole of the Nation is left banging their heads against a brick wall from nine till ten on a Monday evening, Chris Colfer, who plays fashionista Kurt Hummel, lets us know what to expect from our favourite group of misfits from McKinley High in the next half of the season.

According to Digital Spy, without giving too much away Colfer said that the show was about to get even better as ‘New Directions’ prepares for Regionals amongst all the other High School dramas and crushes that take place between an all singing, all dancing, infectious musical number.

As we head back to Western Ohio, openly gay Kurt is to find his first boyfriend in the next half of the season. When asked about the future plot line and if he was looking forward to it, Colfer said: "I am!

I think it's going to be the first couple of episodes of the second season, so we've got a while yet. I don't want to be the downside to the relationship so I'm hoping he's less good-looking than me!"

He was later asked if he thought the character he plays suits him well: "I was bullied in high school like Kurt, I was an outcast and I think maybe that I've had similar experiences so he's much more relatable and the emotion is coming from a real place."

When Digital Spy asked if he felt whether gay teens can relate and identify with his character, the young actor said: "I definitely hope so. I decided to play him the way I do because there are a lot of over-the-top flamboyant loud characters like Kurt on TV. I grew up in a small conservative town so I didn't know a lot of people like that, so that's why I decided to play him that way. I have so many letters and messages and fan mail. People are relieved to see someone being honest with who they are."

Glee returns on Monday, April 19 at 9pm on E4.
