Love Island’s Curtis Pritchard refused to label himself bisexual in an uncomfortable interview today on Good Morning Britain. Curtis was repeatedly asked whether he is bisexual in an interview with Adil Ray and Kate Garraway. Curtis had recently admitted that he is 'open to dating men'.

Earlier this morning, Adil asked Curtis: "Are you saying you are bisexual?" The 23-year-old dancer, who left the villa with his partner Maura Higgins, replied: "I'm not labelling anything."

When Adil asked why not, the reality star continued: "I don't feel like I need to label anything. Because so many people put labels on things.

"I've learned this from the villa actually ... my head's not going to be turned, and then in the future... the head gets turned. That’s why I'm not labelling anything, I would be lying to you if I did."

But Adil asked him again and explained that bisexual men who have found it difficult to reveal their sexuality may find his stance confusing. He said: "For me in particular, they find it very hard to come out as bisexual and if you were bisexual, in a way, perhaps you should just say that. In a way there might be a concern on your part to come out and say, very openly, as a man in Britain in 2019, I am bisexual."

Refusing to comply, Curtis answered: "I don’t feel like I need to label anything. I just don't feel like it's the right thing to do. At the moment I'm comfortable in my relationship with Maura and how it's progressing.

"We've spoke and basically said we're both comfortable with where we are and what's going on, and I'm excited to see where it goes and if we'll end up having kids together.’’

This interview didn’t go down well with the netizens. While one user wrote, "Anyone else feel the presenters are trying to force Curtis to say he's bisexual?", another said, “This is awful...what has his sexuality got to do with anyone else ??? Appalling interviewing.''
