London: Coldplay front man Chris Martin has revealed that as a youngster ‘Take That’ made him question his sexuality.

He made the revelation as he presented Gary Barlow with an award for his song writing achievements at the Q Awards on Monday.

“I’m not afraid to admit it, they made me ask the question ‘Am I gay?’” he said.

Coldplay walked away with the Best Band in the World gong at the awards night.

While picking up a gong for U2 later on, drummer Larry Mullen JR conformed Martin’s apprehension about his sexuality and left the crowd rolling with laughter.

“Chris Martin, I have the answer for you — you are gay,” he said.
