Hollyoaks star Gemma Merna has revealed she's worried about her boobs getting out when diving on Splash! this weekend.

The soap actress will be one of the first celebs to dive in this year's second series, competing in the first heat against Gemma Collins, Michaela Strachan, Perri Kiely and Ricky Groves.

Only two will make it into the next round, but making the semi-finals is not the main thing on Gemma's mind.

The blonde beauty confessed that rehearsals had already seen some near mishaps in the wardrobe department, and she worries about it happening live on air.

The 29-year-old said: “I have tried a cut-out swimsuit but my boobs are going to have to be strapped in because you hit the water so hard, it could come off”.

Meanwhile, Splash! mentor Tom Daley has revealed that this year's celebs are set to take on some of the most daring dives yet.

“The first series of Splash! really struck a chord with people. I think audiences connected with it because they could tell the celebrities were really having fun," he said.

The Olympic medalist continued: “The talent in this series has been incredible, too. After just two days of training, all the celebrities were further ahead than the guys last year were after three weeks. They have all been so incredibly brave.

“Training them is actually helping to improve my own diving, too — it’s good to witness the patience diving takes and to see things from their point of view.

“And the beauty of Splash! is that the set is a swimming pool. That means I can complete my normal training sessions and train the celebrities. It’s brilliant.”

Splash! 2014 kicks off on Saturday night, January 4, on ITV.
