How Did Gok Wan Confess His Gay Sexuality?

The fashion consultant talked of the experience during an interview with GQ Magazine in 2009,
"I was dating a guy, and I basically used him because I knew I'd have to take someone home eventually and thought I'd try it out with him.My sister and brother were there, we all sat down and it was just the most excruciating meal ever.”
Gok then added-
“My family is normally Shameless meets The Royle Family. But this night it was so weird. I had left home and no longer had a bedroom, so my dad left the table early, which he never did, and went into the living room and made a bed for the two of us with an open fire.It was extraordinary, his quiet way of showing his acceptance. The reason I've never told that story is that my dad and I have never discussed it.”
After Gok had confessed the truth and his father accepted his sexuality, he went to the bathroom and wept for hours.
Single or Has Partner?
Wan, who admitted to having slept with 21 and a half men along with a woman in the past, has been in a few relationships. Among them, he is famous for dating Holby City actor, David Ames.

It seems that Gok dated David sometime after 2014. In an interview with the Mirror back in 2014; he stated himself to have no boyfriend, so he had bought a new car for distraction. However, he was thinking about having a partner back then as Gok expressed pity for his future partner, while also calling himself "high maintenance."

Celebrating Valentine's Day with a friend means Gok Wan had to be single at the time, but Angela Ray didn't agree with him on this one.
Angela mentioned via a tweet on 27 February 2019 that she met with the British author and his partner. If she's right, Gok indeed is in a relationship but, maybe he is not yet comfortable flaunting his partner openly. He simply ducks questions about dating. In fact, during an interview with Loose Women in October 2019, when asked about his desire for marriage, she answered,
"Yeah, I'm gonna have the biggest wedding you've ever seen in your entire life... Kate and Wills have not literally got a patch on me, I feel, whatsoever."

"I'm gonna marry myself.....by the time I'm 50, I've got literally five more years to go... everyone is invited....it's gonna be the biggest rave you've ever seen in your life.....it's gonna be absolutely incredible."
