Tom Daley and husband Dustin Lance Black have opened up about married life.

In a candid new interview, Lance Black admitted the pair sometimes fall out and “fight” with each one another.

Olympic diver Tom also revealed the couple have spent as much as five weeks at a time apart due to transatlantic schedules while dating.

The pair tied the knot in a country wedding last year, surrounded by family and friends.

“We’ve been together now almost five years and I’m still discovering new things about him,” Lance Black told Gay Times magazine.

“There’s a constant renewal to our relationship and I’ve never experienced anything like it. It’s really exciting.”

The 43-year-old, who has not been married before, admitted wedded life had some downfalls and the pair still fight.

“I mean, we’re certainly not two perfect people. We have fights.

“Although when we fight, we just get very, very quiet. And then we know we’re in trouble, one or the other!”

He proudly proclaimed: “We’re certainly not doing it for public approval.”

The pair previously admitted to the Attitude Heroes podcast that their relationship isn’t perfect.

“We have really tough times and struggles. For example we went long distance for a very, very, long time: he was in LA, I was living in London. We would spend sometimes five weeks apart.

“And it’s something that was really, really tough and we’ve had to make massive and dramatic changes in our lives in order to be able to live together and see each other all the time. So it’s not all plain sailing.”

Tom came out as being attracted to men in December 2013, in a video that has now been viewed more than 12 million times.

He has declined to label his sexuality since coming out.

Husband Lance later revealed he is still attracted to women, saying: “I don’t know if I’ll be in trouble for this; his head still turns for girls.”

The pair married in a a stunning wedding ceremony earlier this year.

The couple honeymooned in locations across Europe and America for their travels.

They were photographed unwinding in Barcelona, Spain, before moving on to New York City.

The pair even hung out with former US president Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at a film premier, before unwinding in Hawaii.

Writing from the island state, Tom said: “Back to reality! We are back in the UK after such an incredible few weeks of adventures.

“We had the best honeymoon ever! Time to get ready for a LIVE YouTube workout”.
