Anthony Ogogo and Linda Barker made it through to the semi finals of ITV1′s Splash.
Tonight’s third episode saw Donna Air, Anthony Ogogo, Tina Malone, Dom Joly and Linda Barker don their swimwear and take to the diving boards as they tried to master one of sport’s most difficult disciplines on primetime TV.
Linda was left on top of the leaderboard with 25.5 points after the judges – Team GB’s Diving coach Andy Banks, comedienne, writer and actress Jo Brand and former Olympic diving medalist Leon Taylor – had their say, while Tina was bottom with 18 points out of a possible 30.
However the public then had their say, and the public votes were combined with the judges’ marks.
With the highest combined score, Anthony went straight through, while Linda and Tina both had to dive again.
After both Linda and Tina dived for a second time, the judges had to decide between them.
Andy voted for Linda.
Jo voted for Tina.
Leon, with the deciding vote, voted for Linda.
As a result, Linda joined Anthony in the semi finals next week.
The pair will compete against Omid Djalili, Jake Canuso, Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards and Charlotte Jackson next Saturday for a spot in the final.
