“I’m very proud to be part of the show, being my honest self and showing the viewers that stereotypes are a thing of the past. You can definitely expect a fun cheeky chappy lad with a sensitive side”
Ollie is a road worker / tarmacer from Brighton and describes himself as a “gay man in a straight world.” Despite this, Ollie is loud and proud about his sexuality and is grateful to have fantastic relationships with his family and his workmates. Ollie loves Brighton life because it’s an open minded place where everyone can express themselves freely and be who they want to be.
Ollie is big into his car racing but also loves to hit the local gay bars for a night out singing along to Whitney. He loves gay culture and embraces it wherever he can. As well as working on the roads, Ollie also runs his own gin and cocktail van that he takes to festivals and he has hopes to build this business in the future.
Ollie has had a couple of relationships in the past but admits that he’s never actually been in love. Ollie has felt quite judged in the past on the gay dating scene, especially when he was a bigger body shape. He has grown tired of the detached way guys meet through the apps and is looking forward to connecting with guys in person at the Masseria.
I Kissed A Boy launches on BBC iPlayer on Saturday 13 May at 6am and Sunday 14 May at 9pm on BBC Three.
