It appears that The Only Way Is Essex star Charlie King is looking to become the new Peter Andre, after appearing to steal a lot of the singers followers on Twitter. Charlie says that many of the women that follow him on Twitter, also follow Peter.
King explained, “A lot of my female fans are also Peter Andre fans. I look at their profiles and many have Tweeted Peter and then me,” before then joking, “I'm stealing his fans - he'd better watch his back!” Charlie also addressed the fact that people often question his sexuality.
He told the Daily Star, “I just let them think what they want to think,” before going on to confirm, “ I'm not a gay man, but people like to try and stereotype me and that's just down to narrow-mindedness.”
While Charlie King is adamant that he is not gay, there was an episode of The Only Way Is Essex, where he stated that he would be open to dating someone of the same-sex, if there was that emotional connection with them. This is what has led to many questioning his sexuality, that and his close friendship with openly gay Bobby from the show.
