Robert Rinder recalls his brother's 'humorous' reaction to him coming out

“I’m sharing my coming out story because I want both LGBTQ+ and straight people to know how joyous life can be when you are true to yourself,” he wrote.

“I am proud that we have reached the stage where if you share your truth with your loved ones, it is likely to be a good experience. For those that don’t have that support, they have a burgeoning community to turn to.

“For now, we need to frame coming out stories in positivity as it might make it safer for someone else to live without secrecy and fear.”

He added: “There is nothing more freeing than decloaking yourself from shame and terror and stepping into the sunshine.”

Robert Rinder stuns fans by 'polishing off' Royal Navy sailors in unexpected pub 'fight'

Robert Rinder, 42, is known for upholding the law in ITV’s courtroom, but despite coming across all prim and proper on-screen, he was more than excited for the pubs to reopen, just like the rest of the country. On Tuesday, he made his way down to a bar in Greenwich to celebrate the end of lockdown, but his peaceful drink turned into an epic drink-off with a bunch of Royal Navy Sailors, which had a rather unexpected ending.
Taking to Twitter, the telly star revealed he “polished” the military men off with a classy finish – a glass of champers.

“First post lockdown drink at @TheTrafalgarT Greenwich, a group of strapping Royal Navy Sailors from @HMSTrent sent me over a glass rum,” he began the tale.

“I countered with Prosecco. They responded with Rioja.”

He cheekily added: “I polished them off with champagne.

“Best fight ever #PubsReopening #royalnavy.”

And while his fans found the whole situation hilarious, it appears some of his pals thought it would end differently.

This Morning doctor Ranj Singh replied: “This is not the ending I was looking for,” followed by a stream of laughing faces.

After someone else agreed and revealed they had been drinking with the TV judge before and know how it can all end, Robert replied, joking: “They seemed coy when I asked for names and positions.”

“It’s the polishing them off with champagne visual that made me giggle. Naughty Robert!” a fourth quipped.

It comes after the telly stalwart found himself the victim of a terrifying mugging in north London last month.

Following the attack, in which three balaclava-wearing boys stole his phone and laughed as he begged them to drop it, the star has since said he hoped the youths “find something else for their lives.”

After his anger subsided, the barrister penned in his Evening Standard column: “After the limited flush of rage (now gone) I feel an overwhelming sense of sadness for these boys, that this is where they are.
