Naked issue: Ritchie is just one of the stars to strip off for the magazine
When asked by the magazine if he is used to stripping off from his days in a boyband, he replied: ‘Never, actually! It was a band policy not to do shirtless shots because all the other boy bands did it, so we decided not. But I’m confident with my body and I don’t mind whipping my top off if there’s some sun out.’
Speaking about what he considers to be his best feature, Ritchie who admitted he was nervous before the shoot, said: ‘Ever since I was a little boy, I used to hate it when aunties and mum’s friends would say ‘doesn’t he have lovely eyes?’
‘However, I’ve grown to accept compliments but I’m a bit bashful with them. But I couldn’t be standing in front of the mirror all the time. I’ll look three to five times a day at the most and that’s just to check my hair.’
He also revealed that people often assumed he was gay, he shared: ‘A lot of people did presume I was. I even saw a comment the other day saying ‘oh, he’s straight.’ So they’ve spent 20 years thinking I was gay. Men would come on to me all the time.
‘But my mum’s brother was a raving queen who was really flamboyant and funny, so I’ve been used to being around gay people all my life. He met a guy and they were together for 30 years, so I was raised with a very liberal attitude and ‘gay’ has never been a dirty word in our house.’
However, Ritchie is completely straight, he added: ‘But I’ve never been tempted to experiment with my sexuality, I’ve always been quite certain from an early age what I am.’
The GT Naked Issue, which is in support of the National AIDS Trust, also features Lee Brennan. Alex Reid and Ashley Mckenzie.
