The campmate even spoke to his fellow I'm a Celeb stars about his bond with his diving partner in a recent episode. While discussing childhood heroes, Matty said Tom was his hero, joking at the time:"My childhood hero was Tom and I've even been in bed with him!" headtopics.com

Matty's co-stars were keen to know whether Tom would ever survive in the Welsh camp, with Matty admitting:"He wouldn't, that's why I'm here!"Before the 23-year-old joined the reality show, Matty did explain how Tom was"shocked" when he told him he was taking part. He told ITV:"We were on the way back from the airport where they had picked me up from Tokyo when I got a call about the programme."

He is so excited for me and he has always been so supportive and helped me a lot over the past three years. He gives me advice about anything whether it is relationships or whatever - I always ask Tom."

Despite their bond, Matty is keen for audiences to get to know him a little better away from his diving skills."Everyone knows who Tom Daley is but people don't necessarily know who I am," he said."But without each other, we would never have achieved what we have achieved. He always gives me credit where it is due and I also do too. He is really happy for me to grow as an individual and I think it is a chance for people to get to know me better."

Tom and Matty joined forces in 2018 as a diving duo and began competing in the men's synchronised 10-metre platform. It was in this event that the pair took home a gold medal for Tokyo 2020.
