Is Eastenders actor David Witts gay?

EastEnders star David Witts who recently posed in a shoot for Attitude magazine says that he would be happy if his character Joey Branning turned out to be gay – but he thinks it’s unlikely.

“I think it’s very unlikely that he will end up gay. But if he did, that would be fine,” he said. “I’m not opposed to it. I’ve played gay before.”

David was recently named ‘Sexiest Male’ at the soap awards, but are they referring to him or his Eastenders character Joey Branning?

“I get called gay all the time. You type ‘David Witts’ into Google and the suggested third word is gay. I’m like, ‘No! He’s not gay!’ But because he’s nice, and he’s not like his character, he must be gay. No! Broaden your mind a touch.”

Witts, who is heterosexual, also described himself as “a little more awkward” than his “dick” of a character, but said that he is not opposed to stripping off more on EastEnders if the producers requires it.”
