Surely it can't be... a boyband member gay as a hat, as a window, as a stock cube? But it's there in black and white: Westlife's Mark Feehily, coming out to that well-known pro-Gay, safe place, The Sun:

Speaking to the Sun, he said: "I am gay and I'm very proud of who I am. I'm not asking for any sympathy or to be a role model to anyone else."

Feehily, 25, from Sligo, north west Ireland, is currently in a long-term relationship with singer Kevin McDaid, 21, of boy band V.

Hang about... Kevin McDaid is gay too? Blimey.

We've got no way of knowing for certain, of course, but when someone who has been firmly in the closet for so long suddenly decides it's "time for people to know" and mutters that they're not looking for "sympathy" (why, exactly, would you offer someone sympathy for their sexuality anyway?) it's usually a sign that they've been bounced into an exclusive coming out before a paper outs them anyway.

Because one of Westlife. Who would have ever guessed?
