Tom Daley’s Half-Naked Body Gets The Axe, “Splash” In Danger Of Cancellation

Tom-Daley-in-Splash-Episode-2.04-04The globe mourns today as UK television network ITV considers pulling the plug on Splash, the reality diving competition that provides Earth with the necessary weekly doses of 19-year-old Olympic pocket gay Tom Daley in wet speedos.

But fear not—ITV knows there’s value in half-nude glimpses of Tom Daley. They’re keeping him in their back pocket:

Here’s the notoriously sexually frustrated duo diving alongside each other:

    Counting minutes before gay social media will blame homophobia and Tom’s coming out for the show’s flop.

    @JDJase: @tada-no: to an extent, it might have- as I said- you don’t break the hearts and hopes of teenaged girls- many have been supportive on line, but have probably lost some interest in him.
