Tom Daley has said he'd love to follow in the footsteps of Ant and Dec.

The Olympic diver is focusing on his sporting career after working on two TV shows, Splash! and Tom Daley Goes Global.

But now he has told Attitude magazine that he'd love to return to presenting once he's retired from the sport.

The Daily Mirror said he told Attitude: "It's (presenting) a career I definitely want to explore once I've retired from diving.

"I think Ant and Dec present on some great shows and one day I'd love to be involved in something similar."

Tom, who has ruled out going on shows like Celebrity Big Brother or Strictly Come Dancing when he's still diving, also spoke of one day having a family of his own.

The diver, who's in a relationship with Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, said: "Family is something that has always been really important to me and yes, at some point I would love to marry and have kids."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
