Jaymi Hensley's decision to come out backed by Gandalf

Union J's Jaymi Hensley has a brand new supporter of his decision to publicly come out as gay - Gandalf.

Yep, Sir Ian McKellen - who plays wizard Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and is also gay - spoke about Jaymi while appearing on Loose Women yesterday, praising him for coming out in the press two weeks ago.

EXACTLY Gandalf - we couldn't have put it better ourselves. Sir Ian isn't the only one backing Jaymi either - the Union J singer admitted that he's been 'overwhelmed' by support from fans since his announcement.

"I have not seen one negative comment," he told The Sun. "I want to say a massive thank you for people's support. It has been incredible."

Ah, makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Do you know what else makes us happy? This video of Jaymi having a MASSIVE fangirling moment at the Twilight Breaking Dawn premiere. The bit where he says 'SHUT UP' is our favourite.
