‘I got her to look back upon her group of friends and she started to realise she knew more bi people then she thought. I think it was a bigger thing in her time.’ 

However, the teenager revealed that his friends have been really supportive but he added that he did ‘get a bit of s**t’ at school for a while.

Woody continued that he hasn’t been out with a boy yet and that he is currently ‘more attracted’ to girls.

The teenager finished his interview by revealing he was nearly killed in a car crash and struggled with ‘one of those head-spaces’ after an eventful few months.

He said: ‘I’ve had a few things happening in my life; my parents divorced and the suicide of my mum’s boyfriend. I was happy through all of it, but then at some point last year I felt really down.’

Talking about his terrifying car crash, Woody revealed that his car was ‘wrote off’ and it nearly ‘killed him’ after a driver crashed into his door at 50mph.
