Tom Daley first made his relationship with Dustin Lance Black public in December 2013 when he came out as gay, saying that he had begun a relationship with another guy.

“In spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone, and they make me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great,”

“That someone is a guy.”

Tom Daley has since described their relationship as “love at first sight”.

“I’d never felt like 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,” he told Jonathan Ross during an interview.

“I’d never felt the feeling of love, it happened so quickly, I was completely overwhelmed by it to the point I can’t get him out of my head all the time. I’ve never had it before where I love someone and they love me just as much.”
