Youtube has released the list of it’s most trended videos of 2013 and it makes for interesting reading that’s for sure.

The lineup is a diverse one, featuring heartfelt chats to camera, clips from TV talent shows and also some hilarious performance footage and taking one of the top spots is Olympic diver Tom Daley.

The Splash star uploaded a video last week and told the world that he is bisexual and is deliriously happy with his boyfriend that he’s been dating since earlier this year.

Tom not only saw his Twitter follower numbers explode, but the clip became one of the most shared and searched for ever and was named one of the most viral videos of 2013.

Other videos which proved massively popular were footage of Britain’s Got Talent hopeful Francine Lewis, who impersonated Cheryl Cole and Katie Price and made the live finals of the ITV show in June.

The eventual winners, Attraction, also wracked up over 28 million views on their emotional audition video, which made many a hard hearted TV viewer shed a tear or two.

Other viral videos this year included the appearance by Will and Jaden Smith on The Graham Norton show. The father and son were joined by Alfonso Ribeiro as they performed the Fresh Prince Of Bel Air theme tune. They were joined in the list by a clip of Peppa Pig teaching the alphabet. How random!

How Animals Eat Their Food

The most popular UK video of the year however was created by a total unknown, and the comedy footage shows a man impersonating animals such as alligators, rhinos, whales and cows eating. It is unsurprisingly titled ‘How Animals Eat Their Food’and has been played on Youtube more than 88m in the last twelve months.

The hype was so massive that now the video’s creator ‘MisterEpicMann’ has over three million subscribers to his YouTube Channel.

Tom Daley is taking all the attention in his stride and this morning we brought you some rather attractive pictures of the young hunk as he returns to his day job.

Tom has been training celebrities taking part in this year’s series of Splash and we managed to get our hands on some shots of Daley, Keith Duffy, Austin Healy and Dan Osborne in their smalls!

You are going to want to have a look at them.
