As a tear rolled down his cheek, the reality star said he is "so unhappy" about being gay and believes he may have convinced himself to have feelings for Jasmin to "make himself" bisexual.

Lauren, who was visibly shocked when Vas read her a hurtful and homophobic email he had received, has now spoken out in support of her friend and told her followers he has "guts".

Taking to Instagram, Lauren said: "So proud of this one, it took guts to talk about such an honest and sensitive subject.

"The response has been overwhelming, so big kisses all round. Love you @vasjmorgan xxx #towie."
