BBC One will air a very unique program that tries to present answers to the controversial question, are we born with a certain sexual preference or is it as a result of our upbringing and environment?

The Making of Me follows openly-gay actor and singer John Barrowman as he embarks on a "journey of self-discovery to find out the truth about his sexuality."

"John undertakes a series of tests including a DNA examination that is compared with his straight brother's, and he takes to the streets of LA to try out a theory that the origin of homosexuality is linked to events in the womb that may affect the foetus," explains BBC One. "Throughout the programme, as well as picking up clues from psychologists and scientists, John also meets some celebrities and extraordinary people who help shed light on the origins of their traits."

Barrowman is famous for playing Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who as well as in its spin-off series Torchwood. He has also done many movies and musicals. Stats for TV Show Asks Why Celebrities are Gay Trending: Older & Buzzing
