Former Little Britain star David Walliams has admitted that his ‘coming out’ was not sincere, he just knew about the great interest of the audience to people’s private life, especially sexuality issues. “I played up to it,” he said. “Little Britain was a very camp show and Matt [Lucas], who is gay, is actually quite blokeish and he likes things like going to watch Arsenal. Whereas, I am quite camp and much more, sort of wanting to go out to the ballet and things like that. So, I mean we’re talking in quite stereotypical terms that is probably not that helpful because everyone’s different, aren’t they?”

“I was I linked to some glamorous women so there was a kind of, ‘Oh hang on, how is this man who wears a dress, you know, being seen out with these glamorous women?’ It confused people.” In 2013, Walliams seemed to imply he was pansexual when he said he could fall in love with a man or a woman because for him, it was the person’s “soul and heart and brain” he was attracted to. He married Dutch supermodel Lara Stone in 2010 but they divorced last year. They have a three-year-old son called Alfred.
