Tess Holliday has come out as pansexual.
The 33-year-old plus-sized model feels "a lot of stuff in [her] life now makes sense" after she established the word "pansexual" - an attraction towards people regardless of their sex or gender identity - relates to her more than bisexual, and she now feels a "sense of relief" because she no longer has to "pretend to be someone [she] is not".
While speaking to a guy on holiday who asked her "are you bi?", Tess - who has three-year-old son Bowie with husband Nick Holliday, and a 13-year-old son from a previous relationship - explained: "I said, 'Thank you so much for asking.'
"I've been thinking a lot about my relationship to my own queerness, and I think the word pansexual speaks to me more than bi does.
"He said, 'Thank you for telling me about that, but actually, I said, 'Are you buying?'
