Tom Daley has been confirmed as the Attitude Awards 2017 host.

The sixth annual Virgin Holidays Attitude Awards 2017, which is powered by Jaguar, will be hosted from Camden’s Roundhouse on October 12.

Newly married Olympic Tom Daley, who has picked up two Attitude Awards personally and as part of Team GB, is no stranger to presenting so will have no problem hosting the Awards.

Tom said about his hosting duties: “I know just how good it feels to be acknowledged by your peers and within the wider LGBT+ community. It’s not so much validation as celebration, and so I was keen to be part of that process and part of an event that has such a profile, does so much good and sends such a powerful message. I can’t wait!”

A donation of Tom’s hosting fee will be made to the LGBT+ charity Switchboard and the event itself will benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

The whole event will be streamed live on Facebook and you can also catch live updates throughout the night on
