She also came out as pansexual in 2018, sharing the news with her fans on Instagram.

"Pansexual & proud!!" she wrote.

"It’s taken me almost a decade to realise that i’m attracted to the aura, the energy, the connection, rather than the sex or gender identity.

"I’ve met guys and girls that have made me feel quite special. But the past few years i’ve realised i’m actually not attracted to a gender at all.

"I’m quite free & open about this now & I’ve never felt happier".
