WATCH: Diver Tom Daley comes out as gay
Olympic diver Tom Daley has come out as gay during an appearance on British comedy game show Celebrity Juice.
The British diver had previously insinutated he was bisexual by stating on YouTube "of course I still fancy girls, but right now I am dating a guy."
During his appearance on Celebrity Juice when questioned by Keith Lemon "so, you're a gay man now?" he replied, "I am."
Daley then explained his initial coming out by saying "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."
Daley is currently dating Oscar-winning "Milk" screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.
