Will didn't want to report what had happened because he wasn't ready to talk about his sexuality with others.

Adding to the Metro, he said: "I always thought it was this dirty little secret and I didn’t want to tell the police in case my family find out and they find out about my sexuality."

The radio host then went to work the following day and put on a brave face – and acted as if nothing had happened.

Will told the publication: "I was on the Jeremy Vine Show the next morning and I was crying on the way into the studio.

"I had to literally wash my face, put on a brave face, run into the studio, make it seem like everything was okay and in the commercial break I’d have flashbacks to the night before.

"I was really traumatised. 

"I didn’t tell anyone… Jeremy had no clue because, to his knowledge, I’m just the same upbeat Will.

"I didn’t tell anyone on production because again, I didn’t want to share details about my sexuality.

"I remember after that show was done, it was the biggest [sighs] 'right now I can go to the toilets and just cry'."

Will decided to tell the world that he was gay in a powerful TikTok video last year.

He said: “I’m Black, gay and proud. There, I said it.

“I never thought in a million years that those words would leave my mouth without me feeling cringed, uncomfortable or ashamed.”

“I think there’s power in knowing who you are and owning it.

"The one reason why I’m making this video about me being comfortable with my sexuality is because life is too short.

“So it doesn’t matter who you are, or what gender you are, just live your truth and be authentic to you.”

Will is best known for hosting a number of radio shows and his popular podcast.

After graduating from De Montfort University, he landed production work at Sky News, BBC Radio London, Channel 5 News and This Morning.

He currently hosts Capital XTRA's Saturday Breakfast show and Sunday afternoons.
