In 2008 he told Wales Online: “A friend of mine, a girl who lives in Newport, told me about one of her gay friends and said they had an informal gay club.

“One thing they did was record my S4C programs with my tight shorts and band up in a bar to watch them.

“I was a bit surprised at first, but absolutely thrilled. If they saw all of my programs, my audience would probably double! “
