The live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast will feature Disney’s first ever gay character and love scene.

US actor Josh Gad plays LeFou, a sidekick of the film’s main antagonist Gaston.

LeFou tries to come to terms with feelings for Gaston that swing between lust and admiration, as a side-plot to the main story.

When the first Beauty and the Beast trailer was released last year it had almost 130 million views in 24 hours. Disney are calling it their first ever “exclusively gay moment” on film.
