Joe McElderry Shirtless, Boyfriend, and Ninja Warrior Contestant

Joe McElderry Shirtless, Boyfriend, and Ninja Warrior Contestant Ten years after he came out of the closet, how is our favorite X-Factor winner doing in the relationship department? Does he have a boyfriend? Is he married? Or is he single and ready to mingle? From what we gathered from the interwebs, it looks like our British cutie is not in any serious relationship at the moment.

On the career front, Joe has managed to cross over from singing to acting onstage by playing the lead role in the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. Here’s the actor, as Joseph, taking a selfie in his dressing room:

Now, here’s one reason why we can’t help but love this guy and why you join us in being a fan of him:

He competed in the Ninja Warrior UK obstacle course last year and made it to the third obstacle (where he dropped down the water). Sure, that ain’t very far at all but can you think of any other celebrity who has the guts to put themselves on the line like this? Oh, and this is the regular competition too and not some lame-ass celebrity edition where the course is made easier.

Joe McElderry Outs Himself (31 June 2010). Is X-Factor winner Joe McElderry gay? Yes he is. Here’s a statement the singer released which was, according to the Daily Mail, prompted by the hacking of his Twitter account.

From Joe: “I have always been a very honest person and so it is important for me to continue to be honest. It has been the most amazing year so far and I feel so privileged. It’s also been a time of real self realisation and I feel as if I have grown up so much in these few months. There has been speculation about my s*xuality in the past and I have always been honest at the time I have been asked. Over the past few weeks I have really had time to reflect and to realise who I am. I spoke to my friends and family about this in the last few days and it was important to do the same for you all as you have been so supportive.”

He adds: “I have had nothing but support from you and many of you have been very open in saying that you will continue to support me whatever my s*xuality. It is important to me to let you know first, so that you know the stories in the papers are true. I made the choice to speak openly about this. Everything is going well and I’m really happy to be able to move forward from here.”

Props to the lad for coming out. We hope he goes on to find himself a fabulous boyfriend!!!
