The Disney Channel is going to air its first gay storyline as part of a new series.

The debut episode of Andi Mack, a comedy-drama aimed at teenagers, sees the main female character Andi and her male friend Cyrus realising they both have feelings for the same boy.

Although gay characters have been shown in Disney shows before, this will be the first time someone's coming-out journey is explored.

The episode is due to air in the US tomorrow night.
