Strictly Come Dancing star Nicola Adams’ girlfriend Ella Baig has shared her hopes to teach sex education in British schools.

The model and beauty blogger, 22, said there isn’t enough support for lesbian, gay, and bisexual pupils in classrooms across the UK.

As she revealed she views her own sexuality as pansexual, Ella, who’s girlfriend Nicola is part of Strictly’s first same-sex pairing, revealed her hopes to give children more diverse lessons on sex education.

She told The Sun Online: “I would love to work more with teenagers because I think they can struggle to understand themselves and what they are going through.

“I would also like work in sex education, because I don’t think that is always the best at schools here.

“I know that when I came out as bisexual when I was 14 or 15, the reaction I got was very sexualised and I found that annoying.

“I wouldn't say I got a bad reaction or bullied or anything, but I got lots of irritating comments from other children at school.

“The reaction was oversexualised and had more to do with how men – or boys in this case – view feminine lesbians.

“It would be good if there was better support and education in schools to get children through what can be a difficult time.”

Ella then revealed it wasn’t until she met Nicola, who recently enjoyed her birthday celebrations, that she felt fully comfortable with her own sexuality.

She explained: “To me sexuality is fluid and I’m not one for labels.

“I think you could live your whole life thinking you are straight then meet one woman that makes you think differently.

“But if I have to give myself a label, I would say I am pansexual, as it’s the one sexuality that is completely inclusive of everyone.

“I don’t think gender would ever play a role in whether I like someone or not. Whether they are male, female or transgender it doesn’t really bother me.

“I have dated guys in the past. If I was ever single again, I don’t think I’d date men, I think my personality suits a woman more.

“It’s to do with age as well. Men mature a lot later than women so when you’re in your teens and 20s you find that men your age are not in the same mindset as you.

“You have to date a lot older and even then it’s not great. I dated people in their 30s when I was 19 and they were as immature as 20-year-olds. I’d rather date a woman, honestly.”
