David Walliams has said that he would be open to dating a man in the future, adding that he thinks his life would be "simpler" if he was attracted to men like most people think he is anyway.

The comedian opened up about his thoughts on same-sex relationships in a recent interview, and revealed that he would be open to finding love with with a man in the future.

"I don't know why anyone would rule [a relationship with a man] out," the Britain's Got Talent star told Attitude. "Why would anyone say that's never going to happen?

"I do love women and I'm attracted to women but sometimes I think it would be simpler if I wasn't – because people think I'm gay and I'm camp."

We have no idea what you mean, David...

The star also opened up about the "gay experiences" he had growing up and how he feels he's always been camp.

"I was a teen and in a lot of all-male environments," he added. "I am naturally very camp. When I was at school I used to play Wonder Woman in the playground."

The comments come after another interview David did a few years ago when he suggested that most homophobes are suppressing gay feelings.

"To some extent, I've always been camp or I've always associated being camp with getting laughs." Walliams told Esquire. "A lot of people can't make the distinction between someone who's camp and someone who's gay, they think it's the same thing.

"It's a thing that people really fear in themselves and I think everyone who's homophobic probably has gay thoughts and feelings."

David was previously married to model Lara Stone between 2010 and 2015 and the pair have a son together, three-year-old Alfred.

Last weekend saw David return to our screens on Britain's Got Talent, where he was subjected to a dog having wee in his shoes and getting totally roasted by an 8-year-old comedian.

Just another day at the office then.

Britain's Got Talent continues on Saturday (April 22) at 8pm on ITV.
