The Wanted's Siva Kaneswaran and The Saturdays' Una Foden is among the first to show Team GB star Tom support after his decision to come out.
British Olympian Tom Daley has come out as gay in a moving video message to his fans online, and has swiftly been shown support from both The Wanted and The Saturdays on his brave decision.
The Team GB star, who won a bronze medal in the London 2012 Olympic Games, announced he is in a gay relationship in a new video clip earlier today (2nd December).
Got something I need to say...not been an easy decision to make, hope you can support me! :) http://t.co/oOrDEiChGd— Tom Daley (@TomDaley1994) December 2, 2013
"I feel ready to talk about my relationships," Tom begins in the video. "Come Spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and they made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great.
Huge respect for @tomdaley1994 for coming out in such a brave manner. Lovely guy too X— Una Foden (@UnaTheSats) December 2, 2013
"And that someone is a guy and it did take me by surprise a little bit," the British diver reveals. "It was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen but it wasn't until spring this year that something just clicked, it felt right.
"Of course I still fancy girls, but right now I'm dating a guy and I couldn't be happier," Tom clarified.
The Wanted star Siva Kaneswaran was quick to show his support to the diving star and tweeted him saying: "@TomDaley1994 Fair play mate. Very happy for ya :)."
