Tom Daley hopes for TV career after ITV's Splash

Splash 2013 - Tom Daley

Tom Daley wants to be the next Ant and Dec after his role on ITV's Splash!

The diving show kicked off on ITV1 last night, with five celebs getting into the pool for public votes.

And young Tom confessed that he hoped to become a telly presenter once he had tried from diving.

"I’d like to present Saturday night TV once I’ve finished diving. I don’t know about university, it will depend on different things," he said.

The London 2012 Olympic medalist said he would give up University for a career on TV.

He told the Daily Mirror today: “I want to go into TV and if I am getting TV opportunities now I’d rather have work experience than turn it down for the next four years because of university.

“I’d like anything that’s a bit of fun and entertaining. I’m a massive fan of I’m A Celebrity, I could do everything apart from the eating trials.”

As it stands, Splash! isn't interfering with Tom's work or training, in fact he reckons he's been learning a lot from the star's technique.

We can only imagine he's been learning what not to do at the Olympics.

He said: “It’s good to have other things to think about. With Splash! it’s every Saturday night and all of the celebrities have been coming to Plymouth so I haven’t had to travel.

“I’m still able to train as well and I’ve actually improved quite a lot since the Games because I’ve been practising so much.”
