Big Reunion star Kavana has revealed he is gay, saying his biggest regret was never telling his parents.

The 36-year-old spoke for the first time about his secret struggle with his sexuality - which he only felt ready to explore after moving to America aged 22 with his UK career over.

Crazy Chance crooner Kavana, real name Anthony Kavanagh, admits he lied about his sexuality to a mystery female celebrity but was forced to end their relationship before it got too serious.

But it is the knowledge that he never told his parents, his mother has Alzheimer's and his father died four years ago, that haunts the star
I'm really shocked

I don't know if I'm that surprised. He has managed to keep it quiet for a long time though.

It's sad that he felt he was never able to tell his parents.

Met him once at a Party in the Park for a local radio station where I was one of the stage engineers.

Always had a feeling he might be! (And I did fancy him a bit too!)

I'm also really shocked. I'm from this generation of teens so I can remember him from Smash Hits and the like. You know what I find so sad about this? the fact that he used to talk about datings girls and how beautiful all these different female pop singers were back in the 90s. It seems so sad to think all that was a lie. Just goes to show how much some people feel they have to hide who they are.

Good on him for finally being in a place where he can admit who he is. Wish him all the best.

I remember Kavana came to my school once to perform, and I gave him one half of my heart necklace (you know, the ones you used to break in two with chains attached to both?) I was a bit cheeky because I'd had a fight with my best friend earlier that day and asked her to give it back to me. She wasn't impressed when we made up and I told her where it had gone. She was a bit jealous, though.

Anyway, my 14 year old self would have been a bit devastated by the news, but now I just think it's very sad that he probably felt he had to lie about it. Good for him for finally coming out.

Wow, you're all shocked? And I thought DS users considered every male celebrity to be gay.

^Ouch..

Although I guess its a sign of the times that many posts are "whos he?" in nature rather than the fact he's come out as one of 'them there gayz".

His career was over years ago, so why has it taken him so long to come out ? . I can understand him hiding it when he was a teenie pop star with 15 year girls fancying him, but that was long ago .
