Splash! star heading to LA for Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards

Tom Daley has landed in the US – with the aim of emulating David Beckham’s success.

The Olympic diver, who’s been nominated for a Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award, wants to achieve the type of recognition that fellow sportsman David, 37, has achieved stateside.

It would be cool if I could get anywhere near where David Beckham has got to,’ says Tom, 18.

During the Olympics, David gave me advice to focus on the training and the competition and not worry about what anyone else thinks.’

David’s known for taking care of himself but Tom, who’s been excitedly Tweeting since touching down in LA on Wednesday, isn’t keen on having a lengthy beauty regime.

I don’t have a massive routine,’ the Splash! star tells Metro.

My hair takes me 30 seconds with some wax. I always go for the messy kind of look.

I don’t really do much else, just my hair and wash my face in the morning.’
