''I had gay experiences as a child and remember being very confused about that.... I think there’s plenty of other people out there who will be reading it and say, ‘That’s quite normal, that happened to me. It confused me too."
Walliam's sexuality has been the subject of speculation despite his public romances with several women. He is happily settled in a marriage to a "Dutch supermodel" named Lara Stone.
His many well-known characters include gay, transgender and female personalities. His comedy is often equally hillarious and repulsive in the way that it mocks the seriousness of stereotypes and social taboos. Walliams says of the public's perception:
''I’ve always been effeminate, and I think people confuse effeminacy with homosexuality, like they go hand-in-hand.''
Walliams is also an author of several children's books, a judge for one of Simon Cowell's talent programs, and a frequent talk show guest. A YouTube search yields many of the appearances where he kisses and cozies up to other male celebrities.
