Olympic medallist Tom Daley is diving into primetime TV with a new show.

Splash! will see celebrities competing against each other as they try to master the art of diving with the help of a team of professional coaches.

They will have to show off their new skills in front of a panel of judges and a live audience at a packed Olympic-size swimming pool before the public get their chance to vote for their favourite.

Daley, who won bronze in the 10-metre individual men's platform diving at the summer Games, said: "2012 has been a wonderful year for me - an Olympic medal and double gold at the Junior World Champs.

"What better way to round it off by becoming involved in this great new show; a dream come true for me - an entertainment show all about diving. I'll be helping the celebrities as they master a dangerous and exciting sport and I can't wait to get started."

The idea is based on a hit Dutch show called Celebrity Splash!

ITV's director of entertainment and comedy Elaine Bedell said the show promised "thrills, spills and a touch of comedy as famous faces take to the celebrity diving board".

You have a tendency to rest on your laurels when you have lots of free time. A demanding schedule forces you to step up your game. If your energy starts to flag, make time for daily exercise. It seems counterintuitive, but moving your body can actually refresh you. Working with a partner is strongly advised. A collaborator will attend to practical matters.More
