John said: “That is not what happened” and insisted Shane J would’ve been on his side.

He added: “Throughout the programme, we have all been teasing Andrew and Shane about their relationship… I’ve offered them my bed at least five times”

“I’ve been talking to Shane a lot about Homosexuality, and how straight men feel a certain way, I have in no way shamed Andrew, we have all been laughing and joking.”

“I think what is stemmed from… (The incident when Barnes said Andrew was ‘Out of the club” for his relationship with Shane)

“Shane said to me, I and Andrew are going to experiment… and Me and Andrew have this joke, that was gonna go out with the lads”

He said that when I said “We feel a certain way, I’m talking about men feeling that way, not me”
