The reality star was joined by gay journalist James Ingham on This Morning earlier today (October 9), where he told the show's hosts, Amanda Holden and Phillip Schofield, that the first person he came out to was a former girlfriend. "I had a girlfriend, she was the first person I spoke to and told," explained King. "It was a proper relationship but I was very aware when I was seeing her thing weren't quite right. If something doesn't click, it doesn't click." King continued, saying of him and James Ingham: "Our stories will help people, there is a way out. You are not alone. I want to be a positive person, telling people ‘you can do this'". "I feel so positive about this," he added. Meanwhile, Charlie King recently revealed that he is keen to appear in another of Attitude's Naked Issues after he stripped down for this year's edition – find out more here.
