He said: “It still makes me sad in a way because it affected the importance I felt for my sexuality and because I didn’t stand up for myself.

“So even though I was like, ‘Oh, that doesn’t matter’, it’s true, actually. It was really bad. Really bad.’

Will admitted that he was particularly shocked by the incident because he and Chris were on “friendly terms” at the time.

He added: “BBC Radio 1 breakfast show DJ Chris Moyles has decided to launch a rampage of homophobia against me – on my birthday no less.

“It was something that left me dismayed, especially since he and I were on good terms. ”

The controversy arose when Chris changed the lyrics to his hit song “Evergreen”.

He said, “It’s my birthday, I’m going to wear my new dress tonight. And I smell good. I took a shower and shaved my legs. Go out later, I could go to dinner at Nob-oooh. “
