LIVERPOOL, UK - 06/06/07. At GayCon UK, the UK's premiere Gay Conference, guest speaker and affirmed "pink-potter" Dr. John Reid today confirmed that he was the mystery "Hetero Male" viewer of BBC's acclaimed pansy singing contest, "Any Dream Will Do."
Speculation had been mounting for months when the BBC revealed that they could account for at least ONE confirmed heterosexual male viewer of the show. Bookies favourites, Prince Edward and David Cameron, were dismissed when alibis were given for their whereabouts on Saturday evenings. Prince Edward was in San Francisco, while Mr. Cameron was rollerskating with several old Eton friends.
"It's the colourful costumes I enjoy," admitted the Scottish member of Parliament. "I don't just focus on one or two of the contestant's attributes - I look at their whole package. Some are better at prancing, some at crying like babies. My favourite switches from week to week to be honest."
When pressed as to who he thought would win the show, he was surprisingly frank.
"It's the taking part that's important," smiled Dr. Reid. "But I will admit to having a soft spot for Lee. I've sent bunches of flowers to all three finalists for good luck though."
