‘I came out a couple of years ago, I got to that point where I was happy and accepting who I am and wanted to be able to share that, he said.

‘I was really fortunate, so many people have less fortunate situations. Everyone was so chill in my life, it just wasn’t a thing – which I think is the best way for it to be.’

Jack, who was a teenager when he came out, said he grappled with his sexuality for a long time.

‘When I was 14 in the public guy… you get those thoughts ‘am I gay, am I not’ you’re still working it out I was still going through puberty,’ he said.

‘So yeah I just had to have that time to figure it out. I don’t think it was a particular point, it was a journey.’

Jack came out as gay in an interview with New Idea on Monday by saying he ‘hopes to find a husband’ on The Voice.

He’s set to make his highly-anticipated debut on the Channel Nine singing show on Sunday night, years after he won Australia’s Got Talent.

He famously won the $250,000 cash prize on the 2011 reality show quickly dwindled after he moved overseas to pursue a singing career. 

‘I wanted to buy my mum a car, so that was a pretty big chunk out of [the prize money],’ he told New Idea this week.

‘I grew up poor with a single mum, and at some points she was working three jobs, working her a** off just so we could eat. So I’d never seen that much money in my life.

‘I don’t think people realise how much it costs to upkeep pursuing a music career, especially with the level I got to… I funded it myself going across to LA and that costs a lot of money.’

There’s been a lot of speculation surrounding Jack’s changing appearance, however, he insists the new look is all down to lip fillers, not plastic surgery.
