He explained: “This is a question I’ve avoided everyday of my life so far, mainly because I strongly dislike labels despite not knowing a solution to avoid them.
“But if I had to answer I would people that I’ve always been bisexual #ahh.”
Harry and Rebecca share daughter Summer together and were married for 18 months before splitting amicably.
He insisted his sexuality had nothing to do with their relationship ending.

Earlier today Harry shared an upbeat Father’s Day post in support of bisexual dads.
He posted: “Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there that embody the duty to inspire, teach, care and love their children the way they all children deserve too be loved. I can burst with excitement sometimes over how proud I am to be Summers dad, and
“I will cherish every single moment with this kid until my very last breath. For any dads out their who made mistakes along the way (because we all have), grow beyond it, fix it and never stop trying to be that inspiration, role model and super hero.
“In honor of #pride Special shout out to all the bisexual dads out there, I see you, I hear you, I feel you.”

Speaking after their split Rebecca said she believed that they may have got together for the wrong reasons, and felt it was time to re-evaluate the relationship.
She said: “He was younger than me. He saw Beijing and really idolised me.
“He wanted to make sure he was with me for the right reasons.”
The Sun revealed in May how Rebecca was spending lockdown with Harry — and her lover.
Rebecca invited Harry back to the family home so they could both be with daughter Summer, four.

Harry, 28, brought along fellow swimmer and close pal Michael Gunning, 26, to keep them company during the coronavirus crisis — while Becky’s partner Andrew Parsons, 30, is also with them in Manchester.
Becky, 31, and Harry split in 2016 after 18 months of marriage but kept on good terms.
A source said: “Their arrangement is very amicable and they’re doing what’s best for Summer.
“They still get on really well despite their split, so why not? And Harry’s friend Michael is close with the others too.
“They’re all really enjoying each other’s company and, what with their shared interest in swimming, it was a no-brainer.”
Last week Harry posted a photo of all five, writing: “Couldn’t wish to be stuck at home with a better bunch.”
Harry praised his friendship with Becky and Michael for helping him through quarantine.
