The Olympic diver is seen chatting with Wossy about his decision to come out and his reasons for making his big reveal in a video on YouTube.
He said: "To be honest it was a terrifying decision to make. I didn't know what the reaction was going to be like, I didn't know how it was going to go.
"I just felt like I needed to say something, I mean there was rumours and speculation and all that kind of stuff.
"I just wanted to be able to say something in my own words, from my heart, because I didn't know what else to do and I didn't want to be caught on the back foot."
He also paid testament to the support he had received from the public.
"Right now I couldn't be happier, I mean the support and the reaction has just been amazing."
Tom is reported to be dating Hollywood screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.
