Michaela Strachan joins ITV's Splash! 2014 line up

Michaela Strachan

TV presenter Michaela Strachan has become the latest name linked to the new series of Splash!

The telly host rose to fame on BBC One's kids nature show The Really Wild Show, and more recently replaced Kate Humble on the channel's new shows Autumnwatch and Sprignwatch.

The 47-year-old is said to have already impressed show bosses with not only her diving skills but also her body.

A show insider told the Daily Star newspaper today: “Everyone was going on about Linda Barker’s figure in the last series and the same will be said about Michaela.”

Michaela will join rugby hunk Austin Healey, Boyzone singer Keith Duffy and TOWIE star Dan Osborne int he pool next month, as mentor Tom Daley puts the celebs through their paces.

The Saturday's Una Foden and Jonathan Ross' telly presenting brother Paul Ross were also both seen in rehearsals for the live shows earlier this month too.

Other celebs apparently taking part in the reality diving show in the New Year include model Danielle O’Hara, Hollyoaks actress Gemma Merna, Channel 5's Show host Pollyanna Woodward and Daybreak’s Showbiz reporter Anna Williamson.

The second series of Splash! starts on January 4 on ITV.
