Diving superstar turned ITV primetime royalty has forged a close bond with Louis, Liam, Harry, Niall and Zayn after meeting up with them for a few social events over the last year.
It has been reported that Liam had helped Tom during his online bullying ordeal last year, when a fellow athlete slammed Daley and suggested, quite offensively, that he was on team HIV.
We also saw last week that Nialler showed up at the Splash! studios where the ITV hit show is filmed, to show some support for Tom’s first foray into showbiz. One Direction know a thing or two about being on camera – but what does Tom know about busting out a tune?
Tom has talked about his relationship with 1D and he had the following to say:
“It’s been really cool to get to know the One Direction boys, mainly Liam out of all of them, who I am really good mates with.”
“Maybe I will sing with them but you would have to auto-tune the F out of me! I couldn’t go on X Factor anytime soon.”
No shame in a bit of autotune!
Maybe Tom could appear in one of the lad’s new videos and show off his diving skills. The fan girls would die.
