Hamish’s followers flooded the photo with supportive comments, including one person who wrote: ‘You go boys. So happy for you.’ 

‘This is everything,’ another added, while a third wrote: ‘YES YES YES finally! [I’m] so happy for you’.

A similar comment read: ‘Congratulations on living your truth and sharing your story with this image.’

‘Very Good Friday,’ Hamish captioned the photo, which showed the group enjoying what appears to be a coastal walk.

Just a few days later, the journalist shared another image of himself and Jacob sitting on a deserted beach with their arms wrapped around each other. 

‘Favourite human,’ Hamish wrote in the caption.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel 10 for comment.

While Hamish has not publicly commented on his sexuality, it would seem his relationship with Jacob is no secret among his friends and colleagues.

He is an outspoken supporter of LGBT rights, and once lost patience with Steve Price on The Project last December during a discussion about gay youth.

In October last year, he tweeted to his 62,000 followers about the issue of gay children being excluded from religious schools.

He wrote: ‘How would a school determine if a kid is gay? Many kids work this stuff out during their teens, or later even. Are we now saying they’d potentially be expelled during that process?’
