Hit British Sitcom ‘My Family’ is to air a coming out storyline this week as youngest of the Michael declares he is gay to his parents and actor Gabriel Thomson couldn’t be happier about the new direction for his character.

According to Digital Spy, Thomson, 23, has revealed what we can expect from the storyline as the usually comical show tackles an important family moment.

Speaking to What’s On TV, the star explains the shock his on screen parents Ben (Robert Lindsay) and Susan (Zoe Wanamaker) have when he opens up to them, saying: "It's a drunken confession! Michael comes home drunk and Ben's up and going on about how similar they are and Michael's decided now is the time to tell him we're not that similar and here's why!



"The fun of the episode is Ben's reaction. He doesn't react how you'd expect him to! He's incredibly understanding. Susan is a bit more confused by the situation - and more confused that Ben is so understanding and being the better parent! He tries a little too hard, bless him!

"I really enjoyed the coming out scene. There's also a scene with Susan where I am having to come out again to my mum as she's upset I didn't come out to her first. That was a lot of fun to film. The whole story is really well dealt with and very funny. I think it's a great episode."

"It's a great way to go with the character. There's a shelf-life on being the smart, younger kid. There's lots more stuff to come for him as a result, too."

My Family - 'The Son'll Come Out' - airs this Friday at 9pm on BBC One.
