During his TV interview, Bruce - who declined to reveal what his new name would be - said he knew from a young age that he wanted to be woman, even though he didn't understand it at the time.

Speaking on 'Bruce Jenner: The Interview', the former athlete revealed the lengths he went to in order to keep his identity a secret.

He shared: "I marked the closet so that when I put it back I could put it all back in the exact same spot so I wouldn't get caught.

"At that time I didn't know why I was doing it. Besides that it just made me feel good."
