Danyl Johnson, a leading contestant in the British reality talent show X Factor, has come out as bisexual in an interview with The Mirror newspaper.
“I don’t like to conform or be put into one box or another and if I’m honest all the judges are good-looking. If I like someone’s personality it doesn’t really matter what they look like or what sex they are,” the 27 year old dance and drama teacher said.
Johnston’s first performance on the show last Saturday night was well received, with judge Simon Cowell calling it “the best first audition I’ve ever heard.”
Johnston admitted in the interview that he finds Simon Cowell sexually attractive, “because he has a feisty attitude.”
The 27 year old is reportedly a favourite to win the show, and exuded a cheeky attitude when he winked at the judges at the end of his performance.
