Tom Daley 'Spotted Holding Hands' With TOWIE Star
However, Lauren Pope has insisted they are 'just mates'...
According to The Sun, Daley was seen holding hands with the blonde as they exited Will.I.Am's I.AM+ foto.sosho camera accessory launch party at One Marylebone.
The newspaper claims the pair could have been heading home for a raunchy card game after Pope tweeted: "Strip poker anyone??', while out partying with the 18-year old.
However, the model and DJ has since taken to the social-networking site to nip romance rumours in the bud, stating: "Omg what a funny night and just for the record I can assure you that Tom Daley and I are just mates and nothing more xx."
Lauren - who is eleven years older than Tom - then uploaded a picture of herself, Daley, David Guetta and some of her friends, accompanied with the caption: "Could this be anymore random lol…"
Pope has previously dated TOWIE co-star Kirk Norcross as well as being romantically linked to Prince Harry, while Daley has made no secret of his crush on Cheryl Cole.
