Ross Kemp is a panto regular

Ross Kemp is fed of rumours he's homosexual. 

The former EastEnders star doesn't understand what he could have done to fuel the speculation.

'I've no idea [where the rumours have come from],' Ross, 44, tells The Observer Magazine.

'I used to think it was Machiavellian plot to ruin my career, but I'm older and wiser now.'

Ross, who was divorced by Rebekah Wade, 40, in March, insists he's straight.

'Let's just say that it certainly hasn't stopped me being hetrosexual,' he adds.
