The 'Taking Over Me' stars say they will be rooting for the British diver to do well in the finals this weekend.

Lawson have wished British diver Tom Daley good luck in the men's 10m platform event today at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The 18 year-old Olympian is set to compete in the preliminary event today (10th August), before potentially moving on to the semi-final and final taking place tomorrow (11th August), and 'When She Was Mine' singers Lawson have sent him a message ahead of the event.

"Yeah I will definitely be supporting Tom," Lawson singer Andy Brown revealed exclusively to Capital this week. "Everything Tom's doing at the minute is just amazing for this country.

"He's one of the best, you know what I mean? He's the best of the best!" Andy explained. "We can't wait to support him and hopefully he'll do well."

The 'Taking Over Me' singer also commented on the recent revelation that people often say he bears a striking resemblance to the heavily hyped diving sensation, after revealing last week that The X Factor's Joe McElderry had pointed out the similarity.

"Everyone says I look like Tom Daley! I don't see it to be honest," Andy laughed, before band mate Ryan Fletcher jokingly added: "Tom Daley's much sharper, a better all round guy, a better singer and a much better diver than you are!"

Lawson scored the highest new entry of the week last Sunday (5th August) when their second single 'Taking Over Me' reached number four on the Vodafone Big Top 40.
