Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black celebrated their third anniversary

It may be their special day, but it appears that Tom and Dustin will not be able to celebrate together. The couple are currently being forced to spend some time apart due to their busy work schedules, with Tom recently competing in the Diving World Series in Dubai and Dustin filming a new documentary in the US.

The filmmaker said he would miss Tom in a sweet Instagram post ahead of the trip, in which he thanked his "best friend and love of my life" for all his support ahead of the project.

Dustin has been similarly supportive of Tom, and tweeted to say he was "so proud" of his partner for winning a silver medal in the 10 metre synchronised diving event in the Diving World Series on Thursday.

The couple announced their engagement in October

It has been an incredible year for the couple, who first met at a party in 2013. The couple enjoyed a month-long road trip to California together in the summer, and announced their engagement just weeks later.

The news was well received by Tom's family, with his mother Debbie saying she was "absolutely thrilled" to see her son so happy. The pair are said to be waiting until after Tom has competed in the 2016 Rio Olympics to start planning their big day, but Tom has previously revealed that they will likely marry in the UK instead of Dustin's native America.

Speaking to reporters at the premiere of Cirque Du Soleil: Amaluna in January, Tom told reporters: "All of my fiancé's family live in America as he is American, but he wants it [the wedding] to be in the UK."
