Splash host Tom Daley and boyfriend Dustin Lance Black are said to become Hollywood's latest power couple, after reports suggest the sports ace wants to move to improve his profile over in the US.

The couple, who appeared to go public with their relationship last month when Tom, 19, revealed he was in love with another man, have been splitting their time between the UK and the US, where screenwriter Lance is based.

The 39-year-old screenwriter has been arranging business meetings for Tom with some “influential” people in the States, according to Now magazine.

“Dustin thinks Tom has the potential to be huge in Hollywood - he's got the looks, the English charm and he's clean cut,” a source explained. “But he knows Tom's priority is Rio. Dustin doesn't want to distract him from his diving, but he's whet his appetite with the strong possibility of TV work and even some small film roles.”

According to The Mirror, Lance will have his hands full over the next few months as he gets to work on a number of movies including adapting mountaineer Jon Krakauer's book Under The Banner of Heaven to the silver screen for Oscar-winning director Ron Howard in addition to writing the script for Earthquake, the next movie from Star Trek director JJ Abrams.

Lance was recently in London to support Tom as he launched the second series of his ITV diving show Splash!. Tom also appeared to flaunt their romance on Twitter over the weekend when he shared a photo of himself looking cute and cosy with Dustin in the photo which was captioned: "#splash celebrations :) Beef Wellington...yes please!!!"

Following their meal the couple headed over to G-A-Y, where they watched former X Factor contestant Luke Friend take to the stage.
