Diver has received lots of interest since coming out


Tom Daley says he’s frequently been propositioned by men since he came out.

The diver revealed in December that he was in a relationship with a man – American screenwriter Dustin Lance Black – but it hasn’t stopped guys from hitting on him even though he’s not available.

It does happen quite often,’ says Tom, 19.

You do get some people who just come up to you and offer it there and then. Like, literally.

Some people come up to me and say, “Do you want to go back?”

And I’m like, “What do you mean? The whole reason I did this was because I have a boyfriend.”‘

Tom is glad that he can now spend time in public with Dustin, 39, without feeling that they have to keep a low profile.

I was at the point [when I came out] where I thought, “You know, who cares?”‘ the Splash! star tells The Sun.

I just didn’t want to feel I had to hide, or when I went out to dinner have to bring lots of people. It always had to be a group dinner.

I wanted to be able to go out, have dinner with him.’

Tom‘s latest TV show Tom Daley Goes Global is currently showing on ITV2 on Thursdays at 9pm.
