The adorable Olympic diving champion Tom Daley (I just want to keep him in my pocket), was spotted leaving the ITV studios this morning (January 04, 2013) following a guest appearance on the This Morning show to promote his new reality series Splash (airing in the UK).
The series pitches celebrities against each other to learn one of sport’s most difficult disciplines on prime-time ITV.
A team of professional coaches will train the celebrities to perform dives from the high board. Eek! Diving is tough, and it isn’t something a non-coordinated person could really master in any way. Let us say a little prayer for the contestants.
Of the show Tom 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.”
I’m just excited to see Tom Daley in a Speedo every week!
