In an interview with the UK's Jonathan
Ross broadcast Saturday, Daley described how he met his boyfriend.
“I'd never felt like anything like it
before,” Daley said. “We were at a party and I hadn't even
spoken to him all night. I didn't know what to do or if he was gay
at first. I typed 'call me' in his notes with a smiley face on his
phone, and the next day he texted. He makes me feel safe and happy,
right now I couldn't be happier.”
“I'd never felt the feeling of love,
it happened so quickly. I was completely overwhelmed by it to the
point I can't get him out of my head all the time. I've never had it
before where I love someone and they love me just as much.”
“My family … they're all so
supportive of me and I couldn't ask for anything more,” Daley
added. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit
