Joe McElderry Comes Out, Hairdresser Does Kiss & Tell. Vomit.

When Joe McElderry announced the news that he was gay on Saturday (like we didn’t already know) it was obviously going to lead to a load of blokes coming out of the woodwork. First up to sell his story to The Sun is hairdresser Sean Ryan who has sold his friendship with Joe down the river in the hope of making a quick buck in the papers…

Sean told the paper how he met Joe backstage during his first live audition for the ITV1 talent show and was instantly smitten with the Geordie. He then explained that he was the first guy Joe ever locked lips with.

The pair chatted backstage at the auditions and “Hit it off straight away, there was a definite spark between us.” Before swapping numbers and starting to text and phone each other.

Soon afterwards the boys met up for a meal in Newcastle – and when Sean dropped Joe home later they almost kissed… Sean said: “He was shy and turned away when I leaned towards him. I could see he had the uncertainty I had felt at his age.” But a week later they finally had a little smooch. This is rumoured to have been the first time Joe kissed another boy with Seam claiming; “It was definitely the first time he’d kissed a guy because he told me. He said he’d kissed a few girls but never had sex. It was a long passionate kiss. But that was all that happened and I left.”

Swift mover Joe texted Sean the next day to invite him back to the flat that evening; he said: “Joe opened the door in pyjamas. His mum was out so we lay on the settee and kissed and cuddled. We didn’t ever get any more intimate than that.” After a few meetings Sean text Joe asking if they could start a proper relationship but Joe declined saying he; “didn’t want to be in a serious relationship but if he had wanted to it would be with me.”

Sean applauded Joe’s decision to come out. He said: “He’s been brave. It can’t have been easy doing that in the public eye.” And Joe confirmed it was Sean he was talking about when he told The Sun he kissed a boy for the first time last year.

His spokesperson added: “Joe was completely honest about this in Saturday’s paper. He is grateful for all of the messages of support he has had.”
