Splash! coach Tom doesn't actually reveal the name of his boyfriend, however he admits it was the first time he'd ever "felt the feeling of love".

Tom tells Jonathan: "I'd never felt like anything like it before. We were at a party and I hadn't even spoken to him all night. I didn't know what to do or if he was gay at first.

"I typed 'call me' in his notes with a smiley face on this phone and the next day he texted. He makes me feel safe and happy, right now I couldn't be happier."

Neither 19-year-old Tom or 39-year-old Dustin have confirmed or denied they are in a romantic relationship with each other. Reveal has contacted Tom's rep.

During the Jonathan Ross episode, which will air on Saturday 7 December, Tom admits he was "overwhelmed" by the feeling of love for his partner.

"I'd never felt the feeling of love, it happened so quickly, I was completely overwhelmed by it to the point I can't get him out of my head all the time," he admits. "I've never had it before where I love someone and they love me just as much."

On Monday, Tom came out to fans in a YouTube video, which he had recorded in his bedroom at home.

He said: "Come spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe, and everything just feels great. And, well, that someone – is a guy."

It was later reported that he is seeing Dustin, who is 20 years his senior, and pictures emerged of them grabbing a coffee together in Hollywood last week.

Yesterday, Tom spoke out after the rumours of him dating Dustin surfaced.

He told fans on Facebook: "Thanks for your support Still Tom. Still diving.

"Going for gold in 2016. What I am or who I date shouldn't matter. #Road2Rio."
