Tom Daley: I’m definitely gay not bisexual
Five months after claiming he still fancied girls, Tom Daley says he’s a gay man now.
Speaking on ITV2’s Celebrity Juice the 19-year-old Olympic medalist also said his relationship with Oscar winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, 39, is “all good”.
Explaining why he initially suggested he was bisexual, Daley said: “I came out on YouTube as I wanted to say what I wanted to say without anyone twisting it.
“I told my family before I told the world. I was terrified. I did not know what the reaction was going to be.
“I did it on YouTube because people were constantly digging and asking questions.”
Daley’s relationship with Black was exposed days after he posted the coming out video.
“It really was love at first sight,” Daley told ITV’s Jonathan Ross after going public with their romance. “I’d never felt anything like it before. We were at a party and I hadn’t even spoken to him all night.
“I didn’t know what to do or if he was gay at first. I made the first move, I typed ‘call me’ in his notes with a smiley face on this phone and the next day he texted.”
Celebrity Juice airs tonight on ITV2 at 10pm.
