In an interview with News of the World’s Dan Wootton, Duncan James of Blue is revealing that he is bisexual as the boy band are launching a comeback. “I can still look at women now and think they’re sexy,” Duncan said. “I love being intimate with a woman, I love breasts. I do think girls can be a lot more emotional. I know most gay guys think, ‘Bi Now, Gay Later’ and maybe one day the thought of being with a woman won’t work for me. But likewise, maybe the thought of being with a guy might be the same. I might want to settle down with a girl to have a family lifestyle. That appeals to me too. Mainly I just want to be happy. I want to be in a long-term relationship and, most importantly, be in love.”
As for the daughter he shares with ex-girlfriend Claire Granger, the 31-year-old said, “I hope when she grows up she is accepting of her daddy.”
