Tom Daley wants to do Celebrity Bake Off

Tom Daley wants to take part in the 'Great British Bake Off'.

The 22-year-old diver will represent Team GB at next month's Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil, but has already started eyeing up what he would like to do next.

And because he's such a keen baker, he would love to be a contestant on the hit BBC One show, which stars Mary Berry, Paul Hollywood, Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc.

Speaking to the Radio Times magazine: "I have a real sweet tooth and I treat myself to a frozen yogurt or a bit of cheesecake a couple of times a week. I'm a very keen baker. I've got the art of cheesecake down to a T.

"'Celebrity Bake' off? Yep, that's the dream."

It was recently revealed that Tom is to make a documentary on his life.

The Olympic bronze medalist has teamed up with ITV to create a short factual film called 'Tom Daley: Diving For Gold' as he details the past four years of his sporting career, his preparations for the forthcoming Games and the struggle he faced coming out as gay in 2013.

Amanda Stavri, entertainment commissioner at ITV, added: "Tom is one of Britain's best-loved athletes and I can't wait for viewers to see his journey to once again compete in the ultimate level of sporting competition.

"We'll follow his highs and the lows as well as discovering new insights into both Tom's sporting and personal life."

'Tom Daley: Diving For Gold' is due to air on ITV later this summer to coincide with him competing in the games.
