So I'm trying to impress these Scottish girls that I'm mates Andy Murray and even pretended to call in front of them. After, not thinking either of them would have a clue about tennis they said shouldn't you be playing at queens! Said I'd faked an injury to go away with the boys week before Wimbledon! They bought it and I'm sure Wardy had a few extra fans!

Nick: At the end of a night out in Magaluf back in 2011, a few random lads started calling me Tom Daley, presumably because I looked like him. A man (50 ish) came up to me and asked for if I was really Tom Daley, I decided to play along and said yes. I was waiting for a 14" pizza and it was around 5am when the man rang his wife and explained that he was with Tom Daley. I spoke to her briefly then the man got down on his knee and called me an inspiration. At this point, I didn't have the heart to tell him that I wasn't really Tom Daley so I posed for a photo, grabbed my pizza then said I was going for a swim.
