PICTURES! Splash! 2014 line up: Celebs taking part in first heat!

Here's a first look at the line up of stars diving into the Splash! pool in this year's first heat.

The Tom Daley diving show returns after turning out to be a surprise hit last year, and it seems ITV have managed to bag some much bigger names this time around.

Each week, five celebs will dive as they compete for a spot in the final stages. Viewer votes will decide the first to go through, while the next two most popular contestants will dive again and the judges will pick who will also make it into the next round.

Those taking part in the first heat include Diversity star Perri Kiely, who insists his dance skills don't give him as much advantage as some may think.

“I thought I might have a bit of a head start with the flips but there is so much technique involved," he said. “It’s very difficult but I’m having so much fun.”

He'll join TOWIE's Gemma Collins, who joked: “I’m not going to lie – the training is exhausting. But I feel that at Rio in 2016, Tom might have some competition.”

Completing the line up are TV presenter Michaela Strachan, Eastenders actress Ricky Groves and Hollyoaks star Gemma Merna.

The new series starts on Saturday, January 4 on ITV.
