The actress is currently in a relationship with Italian pop singer Benjamin Mascolo and she posted pictures from a holiday in Sicily last month.

The Big Love star was previously in a polyamorous relationship with internet personality Tana Mongeau and American rapper Mod Sun.

Other celebrities to have spoken out about identifying as pansexual include Miley Cyrus, Kesha and Moonlight actress Janelle Monae.

Thorne hit the headlines last month when she became embroiled in a public spat with Whoop Goldberg.

Thorne chose to publish nude photographs of herself on social media after being threatened with blackmail by a hacker who claimed to have stolen the pictures.

Goldberg said on The View that Thorne only had herself to blame for taking the pictures in the first place. Thorne hit back calling Goldberg "sick and disgusting".
