Lee Ryan of the British boyband Blue is a housemate on the UK's Celebrity Big Brother and this week told two of his fellow housemates something he'd never told anyone :
The 30-year-old star casually came out as bisexual while speaking to Jasmine Waltz and Luisa Zissman about 'orgys' and same-sex relationships.
The bold admission was the first time Ryan had ever revealed intimate details about his sexuality
"'Yeah I've been with a man. Everyone's done experimentational s***. I'll tell you later," he told the women.
He then added: "Of course, man. I'm a well-travelled person. I've never admitted it anywhere. No-one's bothered to ask."
Ryan's bandmate Duncan James came out as bisexual in July 2009.
Check out a sexy shot of James and Ryan from a 2011 issue of Attitude magazine,

Duncan James, an actor and singer in the British boyband Blue, tells the UK's News of the World that he is bisexual:
"I've been in loving relationships with men as well as women - and I'm not ashamed.
"But even though I fancy men, I still fancy WOMEN too. Am I gay? Am I straight? Am I bi? That's why I was so frightened about
talking. Now, in my early 30s, I know who I am and I'm proud of who I am. I
don't want to hide anymore. I don't feel I should launch a big comeback with Blue hiding this - I don't
want to go back to the time in the band when I felt I had to keep certain
things quiet. I want to be OUT and say I've had relationships with men as
well as women...I thought there might be weirdness but there wasn't. All of the
boys accepted it. We were perceived as lads who went around and slept with
women but on the inside we had a lot of love for each other. We always
hugged and kissed each other...When you're a young band
trying to be successful, there's a lot of pressure on you to be clean-cut
and accessible to your female fans...I know most gay guys think, 'Bi Now, Gay Later' and maybe one day the thought
of being with a woman won't work for me. But likewise, maybe the thought of being with a guy might be the same. I
might want to settle down with a girl to have a family lifestyle. That
appeals to me too. Mainly I just want to be happy. I want to be in a long-term relationship and,
most importantly, be in love."
