Olympic diving star and TV personality has revealed his significant other in a new relationship is a man.
In a video he’s posted on YouTube, Tom – who won bronze in the 10m platform at the London Olympics – said: “One thing I’ve never felt comfortable talking about is relationships. I’ve never had a serious relationship to talk about, but now I feel ready to talk about relationships and come spring this year, my life changed.. massively… when I met someone and they make me feel so happy so safe and everything just feels great… and that someone is a guy and it did take me by surprise a little bit.
Tom continued: “It was always in the back of my head, but it wasn’t until spring this year that something clicked and it felt just right and my whole world just changed right there and then. Of course, I still fancy girls but right now I’m dating a guy and I couldn’t feel happier.”
Tom suggested he was motivated to go public because of his anger after he was misquoted in a recent interview.
He added that he had the full support of his family and friends, although some had wanted him to keep the relationship quiet.
