I was watching Family fortunes tonight and Robin had his nephews with him and it got me thinking,is he married? If he is maybe his wife maybe didn't want to go on the show. Anyone any ideas?

I thought it was fairly well known that Robin is gay (nothing wrong with that, by the way!) but he doesn't flaunt it or talk about it much as far as I can see, and after all there's no reason why he should. It's not the be all and end all and has nothing to do with the skills he has on and off the ice as a skater, choreographer and musical theatre performer.

Robin gay? where did you find that out? For a long time I have searched the net to find out if he's married and never found any site saying that he's gay.

So you expect to be able to go on a website to find out if someones gay or not??
Plenty people dont want to broadcast the fact they are gay, would you go on a site to find out if someone was straight??
Seems a really odd thing to do IMO, its nobodys business but theres.
Theres a number of the DOI pros that are gay and they dont go shouting it from the rooftops as it has nothing to do with the show or those of us watching. Its their private lives and if they want to keep it private thats upto them.

Hold on a minute I research every celeb i'm a fan of and have never found a anyone saying that he is gay. Infact if you go on to yahoo answers you will find people saying that he's either married or divorced! If he is gay I don't care it's not a crime!

the poster didn't say they had searched the net to find out if he was gay .. they said they'd looked to see if he's married.

In this day of celebrity I would say it's pretty normal to to show some interest in celebs' home life .... I use the net a lot to find out more about people i'm interested in ... and I admit that I often google someone if I'm curieous as to whether they are married, have a partner, kids, I don't see anything strange in having an interest in that ............

to me someone sexuality isn't a big deal and I wouldn't specifically search the net to find out whether someone was gay/straight/bi or whatever but it obviously happens

It's unusual in this day and age that some celebs who wish to keep their private life completely private manage to do so and keep the info off the net ... Robin's one of them and that's his perogative .. but I don't see anything wrong in anyone googling anyone out of interest ... if the info they want's out in the open then they'll find it and if it's not then they won't .. it's no big deal .. it's like in real life, some people (gay or straight) like to talk about their partners/kids etc and other's don't

As Robin appeared on Family Fortunes, without a wife of any of his own children, I found myself wondering about his family life too and if he'd been married. Wikipedia normally has a brief section on a public figure's personal life, including any marriages, and he doesn't even have that section.

It's possible that Robin isn't considered famous enough, or interesting enough for anyone to bother doing that section, or perhaps he's always managed to keep it completely private, which probably means he's never been married.

In many ways, it's nice that a high profile celebrity (which is what he is these days) can have a very successful career and not have anyone interested in his private life, but he is on the tv each week on one of the biggest shows on tv, so I don't think it's just a case of no-one ever asking. I think it could be a bit like Louis Walsh where everyone who works with him knows his situation, but it's just not talked about publicly. Except unlike X Factor, the DOI panel are more mature and don't do silly banter alluding to sexuality.

(He did choreograph the Barry Manilow on Ice show, and Barry himself said that Robin had a brilliant knowledge and insight into his music, including some of the lesser known stuff. Not that I'm saying that means anything, but if we're having this conversation ... )

I thought he was gay too. Don't know why - it's just one of those things I thought was common knowledge.

This Telegraph article also seems to take it for granted

I don't think Robin is particularly private about it - it's just not a big enough deal to talk about is it?

I think its been known while Robin was skating that he was gay. He is likely to have a partner as he was wearing a wedding ring on his left hand, on Family Fortunes.

They're not all open about it, are they?

I think the wedding ring - which can still be seen on his finger in this series of DoI - is the only indication that there is a significant other in Robin's life, but even that may be a red herring.

I certainly don't think it is "fairly well known that Robin is gay" as jerseyporter wrote, or as the Telegraph took for granted (were they provoking a statement from him, I wonder?). A review of his authorised biography states "there is basically nothing said about romantic relationships or love affairs, and the omission draws attention to itself because there is considerable space devoted to discussion of Robin's other personal relationships, such as his family life and several long-time friendships."

For all we really know, Robin could be asexual.

gay people only marry IMO to hid the fact that they are gay,, which is why a lot of pop stars have had a girl friend only to hide the fact!!!

From when I first saw him win medals years ago.

Who cares? - it is irrelevant. He was a brilliant skater - that's how I remember him

I think this thread pretty much makes the point that DOI is dead and only awaiting a decent burial

Gay or not, I thought it was a great joke having the Cousins cousins.

I know for sure he is gay, I know the family and Robin has no qualms about being gay, he is not in the closet.

Really, I don't see that at all.


I do see that a person/celebs sexuality doen't matter to muh anymore thankfully.

He is definitely gay as the question has been asked though
