TV presenter Donna Air will take Jennifer Metcalfe's place in the third heat of ITV's Tom Daley diving show Splash, it has been confirmed.

Metcalfe was originally announced as one of the fifteen celebrities taking part in the contest, but has decided to pull out following her recent split from Dancing On Ice pro Sylvain Longchambon.

As a result, Air will now take to the diving board next weekend, competing against Anthony Ogogo, Tina Malone, Dom Joly and Linda Barker to win one of the remaining two spots in the semi-final.

The 33-year-old - who has already taken part in training for the show - took to her Twitter page yesterday to reveal her nerves.

"What I have I done? They will be lucky to get me off the 1m. Oh no there isn't one?!? HELP!" she wrote.

"My friends are threatening to vote for me... Noooooo! Doing it once is gonna be a miracle ... No way I can do it twice!"

Yesterday's episode saw Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards and an injured Charlotte Jackson win the vote to progress to the semi-final, which will also feature Jake Canuso and Omid Djalili.

Splash! continues next Saturday at 7.00pm on ITV.
