The teenage soap star who currently stands trial for raping a 14-year-old boy did it to prove to his girlfriend that he was bisexual, a Blackfriars Crown Court heard yesterday.

The 17-year-old actor, who was 15 at the time, forced the then 14-year-old to perform oral sex on him at the Wimbledon Theatre stage school which they both attended.

The TV actor allegedly insisted that ‘he had to be with a boy’.

The trial continues.
