Cliff Richard has sort-of, kind-of come out, publishing an autobiography My Life, My Way in which he talks about his relationship with Father John McElynn. He doesn't say he's a boyfriend, but calls him a blessing and "my companion". It's all quite sweet - there's no suggestion that it's a sexual relationship in any way, but Cliff does make it clear he's not one of those Christians who somehow read the Bible as instructing hate:
'Gone are the days when we assumed loving relationships would be solely between men and women.
'It seems to me that commitment is the issue and if anyone comes to me and says: "This is my partner - we are committed to each other" then I don't care what their sexuality is.'
It's no big issue at all. Unless you're talking about Cliff's life, of course:
Although, of course, if you don't want the media to start speculating about your private living arrangements, you might think twice before publishing an autobiography in which the big reveal is that you've got a companion who used to be a priest sharing your home. Just a thought, Cliff.
