“With diving it doesn’t really matter – you’ve got the middle-aged women and young girls anyway, and then gay men. ” Asked if he had any ‘man crushes’, Laugher replied: “My man crush? Well – actually, no I won’t say him, he’s quite old… “OK, Will Smith sounds like he’d make a great husband – he’d be very caring and a good cook.
That’s the entire fan base, and that following would be supportive.” Laugher then paid a handsome complement to his fellow British diving colleagues Tom Daley and Chris Mears. At the end of the day people might laugh at them, but if I do well I can laugh back!

I have quite a few gay friends, just from school and people I’ve met through diving and my journey.
