Who is the diver on I’m a Celebrity 2021?
Matty Lee is one of 10 stars appearing on I am a celebrityâ¦ Get me out of here! 2021.
Born in 1998, the athlete competes on the 10-meter platform in individual and synchronized diving. He has been participating in the junior championships since 2012.
In 2015, Lee won her first adult gold medal at the European Games and again at the European Diving Championships in 2017.
He started competing with Tom Daley in 2018, when the duo won bronze at the 2019 World Aquatic Championships.
Olympic glory came for the 23-year-old this summer at Tokyo 2020, when Lee and Daley won gold in the 10-meter synchronized diving.
The year, however, is about to get even better for Lee, who admitted, âMy two childhood dreams were to win an Olympic medal and be on my favorite TV series. And now I’m doing both this year!
Speaking about his decision to enter the castle, he said: âI’m really looking forward to the Trials and also being around different people will be fun too. I’m used to just being around athletes.
âI think I’m definitely going to freak out the rats and I know I’m going to scream. Heights won’t be a problem though! I am obviously used to diving on boards of 10 meters.
