Second series for Daley and Splash!

Lancashire Telegraph: Tom Daley will return for a second series of diving show Splash! Tom Daley will return for a second series of diving show Splash!

Tom Daley has been signed up for a second series of the hit celebrity diving show Splash!

The ITV show, which was presented by Gabby Logan and Vernon Kay, ended on Saturday when a peak audience of 6.6 million tuned in to see former ski-jumper Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards triumph ahead of Benidorm actor Jake Canuso and Changing Rooms Linda Barker.

Tom said he was "over the moon" about the news.

He added: "It's a dream come true for me to be involved in an entertainment show which has been so successful and also fits so well around my training schedule.

"Splash! has put diving on primetime TV and diving clubs all across the country have kept telling me that they now have waiting lists, following the popularity of the show. That in itself is an incredible achievement and I'm very excited to be part of it."

ITV's director of entertainment and comedy Elaine Bedell said: "Splash! has proved itself by building a big, enthusiastic, primetime family audience. We've seen some quite incredible bravery from our celebrities this series, and the scale of the dives they were achieving is in no small part down to their mentor, and the star of our show, Tom Daley. We're looking forward to even more Saturday night spectacle, and sparkle, with the second series."
