In a recent interview, Egerton set the story straight.
“One of the lads was at my London flat, and I Instagrammed a picture of him and said ‘Look at this cutie,’ and a million outlets reported I was coming out as gay,” he told Metro.
“I’m not gay, but two of my mates came out when I was 15, and it was a joy to support them because, as a group, we are all secure in who we are.”
