Yesterday the internet took some time away from funny cat videos and online shopping to have a round of applause for Union J's George Shelley, who decided it was time to open up about his sexuality.

He took to YouTube to tell fans that it's not something he feels should be labelled with "old fashioned" terms like gay, straight or bisexual, and that it "shouldn't be a big deal" to hear that he's had both girlfriends and boyfriends in the past.

"I've had girlfriends that I've loved. But I've also had boyfriends," George revealed in the honest and heartfelt video.

"I want you to know that whether I decide to be with a girl next or be with a guy next, it's because I love them. It shouldn't be a big deal. I don't want to be scared anymore, I don't want to feel like I can't be myself because I'm worried about what somebody might be saying about me.

"I've not changed, I'm still me. I'm becoming a little bit less scared of being myself, and that makes me quite happy."

It was pretty much the perfect message to share with fans, and the Union J boys were first to show their support. 

Josh was basically bursting with pride.

JJ was sending all the congratulatory first bumps for George's bravery.

Jaymi was super happy to see fans supporting George, the same way they supported his own coming out.
