David Walliams: ‘I hate it when people confess or reveal their sexuality’

Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams says sexuality “can change over the years” and that he hates it when people “confess or reveal their sexuality”.

Asked about his sexuality, Walliams, 41, told the Radio Times: “I think it’s all about falling in love with the person and that is overlooked, really. I hate it when people ‘confess’ or ‘reveal’ their sexuality and also things can change for people over the years.

“So it is about the person but I also think it goes beyond that. You don’t just fall in love with someone’s body, do you? You fall in love with someone’s soul and heart and brain.”

Walliams recently became father to a baby boy with supermodel Lara Stone after the couple married three years ago in London.

In July, he revealed to TV Magazine that dressing up as a girl during his childhood provided him with an escape from homophobic taunts.

Last September, Walliams told The Sun: “I know there is fascination with me because I’m camp, yet over the years I’ve been connected to some very beautiful women.

“I’ve married a supermodel yet there I am on Britain’s Got Talent with Simon Cowell, camping it up.”
