'Splash!' Tom Daley: 'I've no time for girls'

By
Splash! star Tom Daley has claimed that he has "no time for girls".

The Olympic diver, who was recently linked to TOWIE cast member Lauren Pope, said that he is still single because he spends "far too long training".

"I'd be the sort of boyfriend who would be at the pool 24/7 though, spending far too long training," he told James Everton of The Hits Radio.

"I'm either on the diving board or at school. At the weekend I have all of Sunday free but I spend that catching up on the stuff I've missed in the week - I've got no time for girls."

Daley also named Simon Cowell as his dream celebrity pulling partner, arguing that "people would flock to you" with the X Factor boss as a wingman.

The 18-year-old recently suggested that Splash! could see "loads of wardrobe malfunctions" from the celebrity participants.

The ITV show has proved a ratings hit despite being panned by critics, with almost 5.5m viewers tuning in to see Omid Djalili and Benidorm's Jake Canuso win a spot in the next round on Saturday (January 5).
