What is Tim Dormer’s sexuality?

Tim has always been open about his sexuality.

Tim, who enjoyed a brief flirtation with housemate Heidi Anderson during his stint on Big Brother, touched on his sexuality during and after the show.

Back in 2016 in an interview with our sister publication WHO, Tim said, “I have always been fluid in my sexuality.”

“Even on Big Brother, I talked about my bisexuality and that I’ve always been about people, not the sexuality or gender.

“I’ve dated girls, but have always been open to dating guys.”

Who has Tim previously dated?

Tim met bar manager Ash Toweel at a party in 2014 and they hit it off on a spontaneous break in Byron Bay in late 2014.

The two dated but kept their relationship mostly out of the public eye.

In fact, it wasn’t until 2016, after two years of dating that Tim eventually announced his relationship in an exclusive interview with WHO.

Tim and Ash were together for six years and were open about having a non-monogamous relationship. 

The lovebirds got engaged in June 2017 when Tim popped the question to Ash while holidaying in America.

However, Tim’s romance with Ash went their separate ways in November 2020.

“I want to share my broken heart, a vulnerable change in my private life,” Tim told fans on Instagram.
