Tom Daley and Lauren Pope HAND HOLDING after will.i.am's party, TOWIE star in mood for stripping off clothes

We thought the award for the most unlikely celebrity couple of 2012 had been all wrapped up by Catherine Tate and Adrian Chiles.

But it seems that Tom Daley and Lauren Pope have made a last ditch attempt at grabbing the gong before the year is out.

The random pair were snapped leaving will.i.am's party last night HAND-IN-HAND.

Yes we gasped too. That's one heck of an age gap.

TOWIE star Lauren, 30, clung onto 18-year-old Olympian Tom's hand as the two left the US star's foto.sosho launch party at One Marylebone.

Diver Tom had headed to the party after attending BBC's Sports Personality Of The Year.

And according to reports the pair hung out in front of the DJ booth - where David Guetta was on the decks - along with Katie Price's ex Leandro (who Tom has apparently signed up for his new diving show Splash).

TOWIE star Lauren was clearly in a cheeky mood as she posted on Twitter that she was in the mood for taking off her clothes. YES REALLY.

Meanwhile for Tom's new BFF Leandro, the night took a turn for the worse.

The Argentine model was arrested following an alleged fight with another man at his home.

Katie Price's ex was taking into custody following the incident, which is thought to have took place in the early hours of this morning after he asked some guests to leave his house.

A spokesperson for Leandro said: "We can confirm that Leandro Penna was arrested in the early hours of this morning near his central London home. Leo was detained following an apparent altercation with another male at his London home.

"It is our limited understanding that following a gathering at Leandro's home, guests were asked to leave at around 5am, it is then the alleged incident is said to have taken place."

Katie was quick to Tweet about the alleged incident, writing: "Just had a phone call...someones been arrested at last his true colours are being shown (sic)."
