He said: “Being brought up as a strict Catholic, the whole gay thing in my head was bad and wrong.

“And it wasn’t until I was in the band, being around other gay guys, understanding that actually you can be gay.

It’s alright to like other guys.” He also revealed he had a secret three year relationship with one of Blue’s male backing dancers.

I used to ring him up paranoid, ‘Have you told anybody? ’ and he’d be like, ‘I’m not going to tell anybody, I promise you'”.

During this time James was also having sexual relationships with women – something which led to his lover’s heart being broken.

“I broke his heart to the point where he couldn’t be with me in that way any more and ended it”.

The 30-year-old, who had previously come out as bi-sexual while on Celebrity Big Brother at the beginning of the year, wrote a long and heart-felt message to the world, saying he would be proud to be considered gay.

‘I've been asked by a few people why I haven't reacted over recent claims & my answer is this…the claims that I am gay don't faze me.

I don't care if people think I'm gay, why would I care? Sexuality doesn't need to be defended or justified.’‘I think to myself, I sleep with men, so that makes me gay.

I’m still attracted to women, I could still easily sleep with a woman.

I haven’t in the last couple of years but I think if I meet a girl I could still have a relationship with her.’Unlike James, who came out in 2009, Lee only recently revealed that he had been intimate with another man back in January to fellow contestants Jasmine Waltz, 31, and Luisa Zissman,26, while on Celebrity Big Brother.

Duncan James from boy band Blue has opened up about his sexuality in a TV documentary and revealed that he previously dated a male dancer from the pop group.

The singer also said he was “so frightened” when the News of the World revealed that he was bisexual – he had to flee the country.

Speaking on ITV’s The Big Reunion, James said he struggled to come to terms with his sexuality because of his religious upbringing.
