Gemma got to know Tom earlier this year while she was competing on ITV diving show Splash!, where Olympic medallist Tom serves as the celebrity mentor.

At the time, Gemma described the athlete as an "absolute joy" to work with, saying: ""He's such a sweetie. He doesn't make you intimidated, he's encouraged me all the way. It is lovely to have had the pleasure of meeting him."

She even added: "I also think he looks like a young Bryan Ferry, which always helps. So it's all going swimmingly, as they say!"
