The first Conservative female MP to come out as bisexual says her sexuality is ‘just part of who I am’.

Dehenna Davison, 28, received an ‘outpouring of love’ after revealing her sexual orientation in an interview with GB News on Monday.

She doesn’t want ‘a very public kind of coming out parade’ as she believes this would signify there is ‘something usual’ about the news.

The politician became Bishop Auckland’s first Tory MP since 1885 as she helped Boris Johnson secure a majority in Westminster in 2019.

She said: ‘If anyone were to explicitly ask me, I certainly wouldn’t try and hide it because I don’t think it’s anything to be ashamed of.

‘The reason I haven’t done a kind of “By the way, guys” is because I don’t want being bi to be considered a big deal.

‘If I did a very public kind of coming out parade, that would be me saying there’s something really unusual about this and trying to make a big deal of it when to me it’s not. It’s just part of who I am.’

Ms Davison is currently in the process of divorcing Conservative councillor John Farnham, who is 35 years her senior.

The MP, who is now in a new relationship, said: ‘It’s going really well, and I’m very excited about it. But we’ll see, the future is a very exciting place.’

She said on Twitter she was ‘really overwhelmed by the outpouring of love’ after her interview was previewed in The Daily Telegraph.

Her Tory colleagues are among hundreds to offer their support, with Pensions Minister Guy Opperman commenting: ‘Full of support, always be yourself’.

Peterborough MP Paul Bristow added: ‘Good for @DehennaDavison. Spot on. It’s not a big deal but by saying this – in a wide-ranging interview – will undoubtedly still help others.’
