image for Gay Man Comes Out: I Love Cricket
Pepe don't like cricket - he loves it!

A top gay celebrity famous for his flamboyant lifestyle has shocked the gay community by coming out as a cricket fan.

Fashion commentator Pepe Rimbaud has been a fixture on the celebrity circuit since the early '90s. He has always proclaimed his homosexuality and lived an openly gay lifestyle.

He has also seemed to maintain a disdain for manly pursuits, such as sports - until now. In an interview with this month's Hello! Sailor magazine he admits:

"Ooh - cricket! Wonderful, love! I love it to bits. I've always loved it since I used to watch that soooo butch Beefy Botham. What a hunk! And that lovely David Gower - so aristocratic, soo left-handed.

"And I like to play a bit too. Some close friends and I - they're sworn to secrecy mind - love nothing more than to get togged up in our whites of a Sunday afternoon and send a few balls down at eachother... talk about batting for the other side!

"I'm always at the Test matches in summer - I have to go in disguise. I have a lovely time."

"I haven't mentioned it 'til now 'cos it's a bit butch, cricket, isn't it? All those fast bowlers and throwing it in hard, but I reckon a girl's got to be honest.

"When I told my friends, they were very supportive and they said that if I wanted to go public - like this - they would back me all the way."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
