Will has admitted his fear of telling the world he was homosexual.
Young was the winner of the inaugural series of Pop Idol , which has now been replaced by The X-Factor, but in a recent interview he revealed his fear of 'coming out'.
"I was terrified of being gay so I didn’t really feel sexual until I was about 26", the Changes hitmaker told Attitude Magazine.
He continued: "I was quite inhibited. I feel like I’ve reached a place that I’m happy with, worked out things I will never do. It’s taken me years to work that out.
