X Factor 2012: MK1's Charlie opens up about sexuality

MK1 (X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 finalist Charlie from duo MK1 has opened up about her sexuality.

It's been no secret that Charlie has a girlfriend, and today she revealed that she's bisexual.

“If I go out and guys come up to me they look really confused when I say I’ve got a girlfriend," she explained. “It’s weird because all the girls think I’m a gay and all the guys think I’m straight.

“But I actually like boys and girls, so I get the best of both worlds.”

The former DJ, who has joined forces with pal Simone in a bid to win The X Factor this year, also insisted she didn't have a crush on either Lucy Spraggan and Jade Ellis, who are both gay.

She told The Sun newspaper: “They haven’t given me the eye either. Thev’ve got their own people. And Jade is like my best friend. We have such a laugh together. And, to be honest, if I go out I tend to look at guys first.”

She added: “But I’m not into any of the guys on the show. They’re all a bit young for me.”

Charlie, who hit the headlines this week after topless shots of her emerged, revealed it was tough to be away from her girlfriend.

“My girlfriend trusts me 100 per cent and she knows I wouldn’t do anything," she said. “But it’s hard as we just don’t get the time to see each other.

“I’m just concentrating on the music and it’s something I love, so she understands.”
