Viewers question Tom Daley’s appearance on show

This Morning fans were all saying the same thing as diver Tom Daley appeared on the ITV sofa today (October 14).

Olympic gold medal winner Tom joined hosts Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby to chat about knitting, the Games, his new book and everything in between.

However, viewers at home didn’t seem to be listening to Tom’s tales.

Instead, all they focused on was the star’s appearance.

What did Tom say about parenthood?

During Tom’s interview, he also spoke out about the abuse he’d received after announcing that he’d become a father.

He and husband Dustin Lance Black are proud parents to Robbie, who is now three.

However, what should’ve been a happy time for the parents was marred by trolls.

Tom told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: “There’s always people who are going to have different opinions.

“We thought announcing our baby was going to be a happy occasion for us and it was but there were some opinions that weren’t really happy about same-sex parents and surrogacy.”

He added that “what upset us the most” was son Robbie will one day be able to go back and see all the trolling his parents endured.
