The wedding comes just days after Tom posed for a picture on social media from his hospital bed.

It was also claimed that the Olympic diver had had a brief fling with a Brit model called Edward William.

After the stories emerged Tom defiantly said: “This will absolutely never happen again now that we’re getting married.

“Lance and I had time apart then came back together, realising we’re meant for each other. We’re soulmates.”

“When I met Tom, I had no idea who he was to the UK. But we sat and talked for three hours. I couldn’t remember the last time I’d sat and talked to someone I’d just met for three hours straight,” he told Attitude magazine.

“It only ended because I had to get on a plane the next day,” he continued. “We’d both lost someone very, very close and I was about to lose my mum so I was in the midst of it.

“He had done it [with his father] and so we were able to share that sense of great loss and how you recover from it.”
