The Blue singer recently said that coming out as gay as “the best thing he ever did,” and recently he was pictured for the first time with his handsome new boyfriend as they enjoy a cosy date night.

The loved-up pair couldn’t keep their hands off each other as they posed for pictures at the launch of a new restaurant.

The event at the trendy eatery Gabeto, in Camden Market, was hosted by Jo wood.

Duncan and his new other half sipped cocktails with the likes of reality stars Lotan Carter and Sam Calahan.

Blue singer Duncan, 39, was dressed up for the occasion in a black silk shirt and contrasting white trousers and trainers.

The Hollyoaks star flaunted his tanned chest by leaving a couple buttons undone and rolled up his sleeves to show off his tattooed arms.

His handsome partner happily joined him for pictures, dressed in a smart white short and chinos, setting off his casual look with a pair of dark sunglasses.

Duncan, who has a 12-year-old daughter Tiane-Fin, recently appeared on Loose Women to share that coming out as gay was the “best thing he ever did” after years of “living a lie.”

The Hollyoaks actor, who’s character Ryan Knight has also been on a journey with his sexual orientation, said he wanted to have acceptance after carrying a burden on his shoulders for years.

He also received a video message from co-star Adam Rickitt, with whom he shared a steamy kiss on screen recently.

Duncan described how he felt worried about coming out because of possible negative reactions from his friends, family and the fans.

He said: “To be honest it was something I didn’t feel comfortable sharing with the world but I thought doing a story was the right thing to do. After years of hiding the secret inside me I wanted to be who I am and I wanted acceptance.

“I carried this burden on my shoulders for years. I was worried about what the fans would think, family and friends, and I was living a lie really.”

The Blue singer added: “Hollyoaks are very pro LGBT and do lots of storylines like this. It’s a great show to be a part of as they do tackle these things.”
