Olympic diver Tom Daley comes out as a 'gay man' on UK's 'Celebrity Juice'

By Gina DiFalco,

Olympic diver, Tom Daley, has confirmed that he’s no longer bisexual and he’s only attracted to men during the UK show Celebrity Juice.

In a YouTube post from December 2013, Daley, 19, came out to his fans that he was bisexual. He talked about being in a relationship with a guy, and it was then revealed he was dating 39-year-old screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.

On the show Wednesday night, he explained to host Keith Lemon, "I came out on YouTube as I wanted to say what I wanted to say without anyone twisting it. I told my family before I told the world. I was terrified. I did not know what the reaction was going to be. I did it on YouTube because people were constantly digging and asking questions."

According to Entertainmentwise, Daley said he’s a “gay man now” and his relationship with Black is “all good.”

The couple were seen leaving ITV Studios on Wednesday together, with Daley looking comfortable with his decision to come out.

Lemon also asked Daley which other celebrities were gay but not out of the closet yet and he replied, “It should not really matter. Nobody should care."
