Mentored by Tom Daley, the contestants will be given their scores by judges including Team GB’s Diving coach Andy Banks, comedienne, writer and actress Jo Brand and former Olympic diving medalist Leon Taylor.
Phone lines will then open for viewers to pick their favourite.
At the end of the show, the contestant at the top of the leader board will go through to the semi-final whilst the next two contestants face a Splash!-off.
The judges will then decide which diver was the most successful in the Splash!-off and they too will go through to the semi-final.
