According to the British newspaper The Mirror, former Boyzone band member Stephen Gately, who made quite a stir when he came out at the height of the band’s popularity, turned a bit threatening on a TV talk show. Gately was appearing on Channel 4’s The Priory show when the host asked about his boyfriend, Eloy De Jong. Gately replied, “Eloy’s very well. I left him at home this morning minding our two dogs and the cat.” This brought an unkind giggle from an audience member, which provoked Gately to turn and say, “Stop laughing, or I’ll punch your head in.” Though the host made light of the situation, Gately reportedly remained visibly irritated with the heckler.
