In a dramatic change of heart, Boyzone member Stephen Gately is poised to announce that he is straight.
Gately came out as a homosexual in 1999, and also announced he was living with Dutch boy band member Eloy de Jong. The revelations coincided with the launch of Gately's solo career.
However, two years on, the singer has been dropped from his record label after disappointing sales of his solo singles and album New Beginning. Stephen now believes that his sexuality may have something to do with his career down-spiral, and is seriously considering a return to heterosexuality.
Monica Heesom , a lifelong Boyzone fan, agrees with Gately. "When he was with Boyzone, and he was straight, I had a realistic chance of going on a date with him, but now he's gay, that's not the case. What's the point in buying his records if he's dating a man?"
Gately was unavailable for comment, but it is thought his new single Look At The T**s
On That will mark a return to his heart-throb status.
