Speaking on Monday’s Victoria Derbyshire programme, the 22-year-old admitted she was the subject of much fan of much uproar after her relationship with Sophie, who was tragically found dead in June aged just 32.

Katie explained that men seem to misinterpret her sexuality as being ‘a woman who likes having threesomes,’ and went onto admit she doesn’t understand why she is made to feel ‘ashamed’ about being bisexual.

She said: ‘In the villa I was so scared because I didn’t know what the outside world was thinking, what my family was thinking, what my friends were thinking, so I was really upset to be honest that they’d not supported me from my own community, who had probably felt those feelings, those nervous feelings of coming out.’

‘Why can’t I be who I want to be? There’s nothing to be ashamed of, there’s nothing to feel bad about.

‘You’re completely normal, and there’s so many people out there like you, just as long as you love you that’s all that matters.’

Katie then went onto admit she faced much criticism from the LGBT community for her relationship with Sophie, as many struggled to grasp the romantic level of her feelings for people of the same and opposite sex.

She explained: ‘They see it as a sexual thing. They think it’s entertainment for them. They’ll be like, ”Oh, you like women as well, you like threesomes.”’ 

Sophie was tragically found dead aged 32 at her parents’ home in Newcastle back in June, with friends since revealing the star took her own life after battling depression and anxiety, in the wake of financial woes.

Katie shared a lengthy message with her fans after hearing the news, in which she referenced the pressures of social media and the importance of mental health awareness.
