Splash! 2014: Keith Duffy compares belly flops to 'being hit with a wet fish'

Keith Duffy (Splash 2014)

Splash! contestant Keith Duffy reckons a belly flop compares to being hit with a wet fish.

The Boyzone star will be one of the latest celebs taking the plunge in the ITV series this weekend and was over the moon to get the call to take part.

He said: "At my age, I don't often get the opportunity to learn a new skill.

"I've always admired divers, so I wanted to learn this discipline. And as an added bonus, I can use it to sow off on Holiday."

But the 39-year-old has been nursing some injuries from the pool after a few dives went wrong in training for Saturday night's live show.

"I've done a couple of belly flops and they're not very nice. It's like someone hitting you very hard with a west fish," he explained.

Joining Keith in this weekend's latest live heat will be TV Presenter Anna Williamson, singer and actress Toyah Willcox, TV and radio presenter Paul Ross and former rugby league and rugby union player Martin Offiah.

Splash! 2014 airs this Saturday night on ITV from 7PM.
