Diving heartthrob Tom Daley makes a splash in the modelling world with his first official calendar

September 25, 2012 | by | 0 Comments

Olympic diver Tom Daley released his first official calendar and admitted he plans to try modelling in the future.

London 2012 bronze medallist Daley, 18, appears in a variety of poses – some of them shirtless and covered in water.

But Tom has said his soon-to-be-released 2013 calendar is “almost a bit of a mick take.”

He said: “The one on the front cover where I’m covered in water was really funny to do.

“Someone had to pound a bucket of water over me, it wasn’t cold, it was sort of lukewarm.

”It took a few takes to get to get it right through because the water needed to be in the right place.

”I’m going to give it to all my friends at Christmas, it will be a funny present. My friends all think the calendar is really funny. It’s a mick take almost.

“It’s the first calendar I’ve done and it was good fun. I really enjoyed it and I just hope people like it.

“Apparently the Calendar Club said there is a lot of interest in it.
It really just sums up my year.

Tom, of Plymouth, Devon, says his favourite picture falls on his birthday month of May.
