Clare Balding has admitted that she finds constantly being asked about her sexuality "exhausting".
The presenter, who married her long-term girlfriend earlier this year
, has revealed that she's torn between wanting to be a role model for the LGBT community and wishing she could talk about her sexuality less.
“I’m very aware that it’s important for people to see a couple in the mainstream. But it can get a bit exhausting. I don’t walk down the street saying, ‘Hi! I’m gay,'" she told Radio Times
“At the same time, I want to be one of the people who helps. What am I meant to do? I don't know what the bloody answer is," she added.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister David Cameron told Attitude recently that Balding is his "gay hero" - find out more here
