Tom Daley wants to join The Jump after his show Splash! is "rested"


Tom Daley has revealed he's up for joining The Jump line up.

The Olympic diver revealed this week: “I am an adrenalin junkie and I like the bob sleigh. I would like to join the winter Olympic team.

"Would I do The Jump? The Jump looks like the scariest show ever. It could be fun.”

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Tom explained his similar show Splash!, based on diving, had been "rested" by ITV.

He said: “I loved Splash. I had so much fun doing that and it was difficult doing it in the run up to the Olympics and doing ten Saturday night shows as it started getting into competition season.

"The show has been rested.”

While Tom may be hoping for a call from The Jump, he'll have to keep waiting until next year with the cast for the 2017 series already confirmed.

The stars who have signed up for the show this year, already training in Austria, include Made In Chelsea's Spencer Matthews, TOWIE's Lydia Bright, X Factor singer Jake Quickenden, model Caprice Bourret and Olympic gymnast Louis Smith.

More celebs on The Jump this year are rugby player Gareth Thomas and Paralympic medallist Kadeena Cox and retired pro cyclist Bradley Wiggins.

Others on the cast are Footie player Robbie Fowler, Big Brother housemate Josie Gibson, Olympic taekwondo champ Jade Jones, rugby player Jason Robinson and comic and TV host Mark Dolan.

Rounding off the line up are model Vogue Williams and Camilla Parker Bowles’ niece Emma Parker Bowles.

However, it's not yet clear which will make the starting line up, with some stars usually training on standby in case one of the main cast is injured.

The Jump 2017 airs Sunday nights on Channel 4 from February 5.
