Splash! star Tom Daley wanted for I'm A Celebrity 2014

Tom Daley could be set to swap Splash! for I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here, as ITV reportedly wants him to sign him up for the jungle reality show.

According to The Daily Star, bosses reckon he'd prove to be entertaining in the Australian outback after he 'chickened out' of Bushtucker Trial-style challenges he was set for his new ITV2 travelogue.

During filming for Tom Daley Goes Global, he had to stay in a Thai beach hut - but soon escaped to a hotel when it was invaded by rats and spiders.

The diver - who won a bronze medal at the 2012 Olympics - also freaked out while eating scorpions and facing a sky dive.

"I was scared and nervous," commented Tom. "It was too much of a shock."

Since the London games, Tom has been best known for Splash!, the Saturday night ITV competition that sees celebrities learn how to dive.

However, it is now reportedly being considered for the axe after ratings for this year's second series plummeted under 3million viewers due to competition from The Voice UK.

Tom Daley Goes Global - which follows Tom and his best friend Sophie on a six-week backpacking tour of Australia, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand and Thailand - airs on April 10th at 9.00pm on ITV2.
