Gay website “outs” straight X Factor contestant Austin Drage

23 Oct

One of the finalists in a popular ITV reality show has admitted he is straight after Australian website DNA declared him to be “openly gay.”

Austin Drage, who is competing in the The X Factor, turned to the Daily Star to declare his heterosexuality.

“I am sorry to disappoint but I am not gay,” he told the paper.

“But I am very flattered to have a gay fan base.

“And I appreciate all the support I have been getting while on The X Factor.”

The 22 year old added that he has a girlfriend.

DNA magazine’s online version, in a section where they publish pictures of topless men on their site, said in December 2007:

“Multimedia star from the UK, Austin Drage appeared in the Guy Ritchie movie Snatch as well as on TV in Casualty and The Bill.

“Openly gay, his main love is music. And he appeared for a time as part of the band 5Boyz.”
