Speaking in a candid interview about growing up with his father, Regan said: “I’m bisexual, I date men and women. I’m really open about that.”

He continued to The Sunday Mirror: “I haven’t had a lot of relationships though. I’ve only dated three people. I haven’t told my dad but I don’t think he will mind.

“He is proud of me whatever I do and whatever decisions I make.”

He also opened up about being brought up while his dad battled alcoholism.

The dancer said he spent weekends in The Priory Clinic while his dad underwent treatment to get sober.

Regan added: “The past is the past. He’s my dad, I’ll always love him and he’ll always love me no matter what.”

Also, the 23-year-old said he regrets making claims in a documentary when he was 12 that he wanted his dad out of his life.

Paul walked out on the family when Regan was a baby after a series of rows with now ex-wife Sheryl, 54.
