I think when you get so many comments on the scale we did coming out of thousands of followers."She added: "There are fans and positive comments but people would focus on the negatives. Sometimes I would look for it...There would be so many negative comments. They are commenting on the way you look, the way you talk. They would come up with an opinion of you on a TV show where they've watched you for 45 minutes." Personal life In 2008, Gradon dated Wayne Lineker, brother of Gary Lineker. In 2013, Gradon dated rugby player Danny Cipriani. In 2016, reports stated that Gradon was "openly bisexual". She was widely known among the social scene in Newcastle.
