Leon Jackson: I cry when I watch Neighbours
Leon Jackson admits he often wells up when watching Aussie soap Neighbours.
The X Factor winner regularly tunes into the Channel 5 show and can be left feeling emotionally drained after a traumatic episode.
‘I can shed a tear at a movie or when I’m watching Neighbours,’ he says. ‘When [the character] Madge died, I was away.’
And Leon, 19, isn’t embarrassed to show his feelings.
‘I’m not afraid to be sensitive,’ he tells Weekend magazine. ‘I’m a strong believer that men should be able to cry.
‘We live in a different society these days. Men walk around with handbags and wear guyliner.’
Leon has spent the last six months recording his debut album, which will be released in October.
