Christopher Biggins: 'Bisexuals ruin women's lives'

Christopher-Biggins-interviewChristopher Biggins has claimed that bisexual men "ruin" lives. The television presenter told The Big Issue that "the world is full of bisexuals" who are scared to admit they are gay. He said: "I think the people who fear homosexuality most are the ones who could be gay. The world is full of bisexuals because that's the way they want to do it. What do they do? They ruin a woman's life. "It's so wrong, because you're not owning up to what you are. You lead a double life so how can you be a real person?" Biggins spoke about his decision to enter into a heterosexual marriage, before coming out as gay. "I wish it had been easier being gay when I was younger. There were pressures then," he said. "I was doing lots of children's TV, like Rentaghost, and if you were gay in those days you were considered to be a paedophile. "I didn't really understand my sexuality when I was a teenager. I knew I had vague inclinations towards other men but it wasn't a big thing. "Then in my early twenties I met a girl and married her, because I thought that was the thing to do. Ridiculous. I hadn't thought it through and of course it didn't work. Now I've happily been with Neil (Neil Sinclair, his civil partner) for 21 years and that's how it should have been," Biggins concluded. > Jessie J: ‘Being bisexual was a phase’ > Cameron Diaz: ‘Don’t label me bisexual’ > ‘EastEnders’ Natalie Cassidy for new lesbian storyline
