ITV has commissioned Splash! (WT) a brand new entertainment series that pitches celebrities against each other as they prove what goes up must come down and learn to dive.
Featuring Olympic Bronze medal and British and European Championship winner Tom Daley, Splash! challenges some of the nation’s favourite faces to learn one of sport’s most difficult disciplines on primetime ITV1.
Splash! (WT) will see the celebrity names mix determination, drive and daredevil stunts as they don their swimwear and take to the water. They’ll be flipping, flopping and jaw dropping as they star in this spectacular and hilarious prime time fun.
A team of professional coaches will train the celebrities as they push their limits and overcome their fears to master the grace, skill, athleticism and accuracy needed, to perform dives from the high board.
The famous faces will perform live each week in the electric atmosphere of a packed Olympic size pool - in front of a panel of expert judges as the public vote for their favourites.
Who will rise to the occasion leaving the audience in awe, and who will splash down belly first?
Tom said: “2012 has been a wonderful year for me – an Olympic medal and Double Gold at the Junior World Champs! What better way to round it off by becoming involved in this great new show; a dream come true for me – an entertainment show all about diving!
"I’ll be helping the celebrities as they master a dangerous and exciting sport and I can’t wait to get started.”
