David had gay experiences as a child

David Walliams has revealed that a chat with Graham Norton made him realise that he was meant to fall in love with a woman.

Openly-gay TV presenter Graham made things simple for David after childhood ‘gay experiences’ left him feeling confused.

Graham said: “Sexuality is more emotional than physical. What matters is whose arms you want around you,”‘ writes David, 41, in his new autobiography Camp David.

‘”A woman’s,” I said. “You’re not gay then,” said Graham. I never worried about it again.’

After his heart-to-heart with Graham, 49, David met Dutch supermodel Lara Stone and they married in 2010.

He has chosen to be honest about his experiences with the same sex in his book – which is released next week – because he thinks other people in the same situation need someone to tell them that it’s normal.

‘There are plenty of effeminate people who are straight, and plenty of butch people who are gay,’ David tells The Sun.

‘I’ve always been camp, I’ve always been drawn to playing Wonder Woman in the school playground. I’m not worried about it, it just seems other people are.’
