Howard Donald has spoken about his sexuality, admitting he is ‘open-minded’ as he has been attracted to both men and women in the past.
The singer, 50, has been married to Katie Halil since 2015 and shares sons Bowie, three, and Dougie, 23 months with his wife, while he is also dad to daughters Grace, 20, and Lola, 13, from past relationships.
Speaking during an Instagram Live video, the singer told fans he ‘fancies’ both men and women and thinks he ‘should’ be pansexual, which means an attraction to anyone regardless of sex or gender identity.
Howard mused in the video: ‘Christine And The Queens, she’s a pansexual, I’ve read. Pansexual sounds good. Maybe I should be pansexual.’
‘And let’s face it, women look at other women sometimes and think, “Ooh yeah, she’s tasty, I fancy her”‘.
‘I’ve looked at men before and thought, “Oh yeah, I fancy him, he’s a good-looking guy. I wish I looked like that”‘.
Howard added that while he has fancied men and women in the past, he’s happily settled with Katie, explaining:
‘You can still be attracted to men and still be attracted to women . . . as well as women, sorry. But I’m happy with my wife, anyway. But I’m just saying, I’m very open-minded when it comes to that.’
Howard and illustrator Katie were married in January 2015 in a secret two-day wedding.
The couple met while Take That were filming Marks & Spencer Christmas TV advert in 2008, but only started dating in 2010.
Jason is busy preparing for Take That’s upcoming Greatest Hots tour around the UK and Dublin, which kicks off on March 28.
He will join bandmates Gary Barlow and Mark Owen on stage and while Robbie Williams has hinted he will also make an appearance, it’s not been confirmed if fifth member Jason Orange will return after quitting the band in 2014.
