The latest book from our favourite celebrity biographer Chas Newkey-Burden is about everyone’s favourite diving heartthrob, Tom Daley.
Tom Daley: The Unauthorized Biography includes exclusive photography, on-the-spot encounters with Tom and his family, and original interviews, including Blake Aldridge telling his side of the bust-up with Tom at the 2008 Olympics and that phone-call!
Even Dougie McFly gets a passing mention!
It’s a great book. We loved some of the, ahem, photographs and also learned some surprising things about Tom…
2. Tom once smashed his head against the board during a dive and turned the water blood red when he landed in the pool
3. He was photographed alongside Kate Moss for a glossy magazine and later persuaded the supermodel to pose for him as part of his GCSE Photography project!
4. He is a superstar in China, where the fans call him ‘Baby’. (Meanwhile, the Daily Mail has dubbed him ‘Man-Boy’.)
5. Pauline Ducruet, daughter of Princess Stephanie of Monaco, is one of many girls who fancies Tom. But he says he has only had one brief relationship with a girl, when he was 13.
Good luck to Tom at London 2012!
