Former Big Brother winner Tim Dormer has opened up about his sexuality in an interview with Who magazine, speaking about his current relationship with bar manager and aspiring actor, Ash Toweel.
The 32-year-old, who won the reality show in 2013, told the magazine, “I have always been fluid in my sexuality.” He explained, “even on Big Brother, I talked about my bisexuality and that I’ve always been about people, not the sexuality or gender.”
“I’ve dated girls, but have always been open to dating guys,” he said.
I’ve loved sharing my life on social media, but there’s one special part of my life I haven’t shared with you all until now…this last year I fell in LOVE with the most beautiful person. His name is Ash, he’s my best friend and he truly gets me and has made me very happy! I’ve always considered my sexuality to be fluid and I’ve never been interested in labels which categorise and divide. I’m only interested in celebrating what we all have in common, the freedom to share the most precious beautiful gift that holds this magnificent universe together…LOVE. I’m proud to now share our story in the hope that other misfits like myself who don’t quite know where they fit in life won’t give up. LOVE yourself, and I hope one day LOVE finds us all! And for those who don’t understand us…I hope you get there one day. Check out this weeks @whomagazine where Ash and I shared our full story freely for you to read. ????❤️
Tim and Ash met at a party in 2014, and went on a spontaneous trip to Byron Bay soon after. While the pair have been close ever since, Tim only told his family and friends about their relationship upon returning from his stint on Big Brother Canada earlier this year.
“I finally fell in love,” Tim told Who, adding that he’s “proud” of his relationship with Ash and really “missed” him when he was away in Canada.
