Tom Daley: 'It's Funny People Think I'm Gay'
Sports star brushes off gay rumours and insists he'd come out if he were...
Tom Daley has revealed that he thinks it's "funny" that some people think he's gay.
The diver and TV personality told The Mirror that he'd happily admit to being gay if he was - and doesn't mind the gossip.
"I think it's funny when people say I'm gay... I laugh it off," he insisted.
"I'm not. But even if I was, I wouldn't be ashamed. It wouldn't bother me in the slightest what people thought."
And he said he was appreciative of his gay fans.
"But I can understand why I have a massive gay following - I spend most of my life half naked in trunks on a diving board showing off my bare chest.
"I often joke I wear more to bed than I do to work. But I'm cool with my gay following. It's great to have gay fans even though my friends gently take the mick."
Tom revealed that he's got brains as well as beauty when he passed his A levels with excellent grades last month.
