Susan Boyle turns down Tom Daley's new diving show Splash

Susan Boyle

Former Britain's Got Talent sensation Susan Boyle has declined the chance to join new ITV diving show Splash - as she can't swim!

The new format - hosted by Vernon Kay and Tess Daly - will feature Olympic star Tom Daley teach his sport to various celebrities, with viewers voting for their favourite dives.

But even though we'd all love to see her give it a go, Susan was quick to turn down the offer.

Talking to The Daily Star last month, she explained: "I did get asked to be in a diving show recently, which is hilarious because I can’t swim and I’m utterly terrified of water.

"I wouldn’t have made it to the first step of the diving board."

Susan added that she doesn't fancy the idea of donning some skates for Dancing On Ice, saying: "You’d have to strap two cushions to my backside as that’s where I’d constantly be."

Well, it's not as if she needs the career boost!

Splash hits our screens next Saturday at 7.15pm on ITV1.
