Diversity's Perri Kiely was crowned Splash! 2014 champion with a whopping 60.97% of the viewers' vote, ITV has revealed.

The runner-up, Paralympic athlete Richard Whitehead, pulled in 17.89% of the vote, while Boyzone's Keith Duffy and TOWIE star Dan Osborne, who came third and fourth in the diving competition, had 12.75% and 8.39% of the vote respectively.

The Splash! points system explained

With the exception of the Splash! final the scoring system for the competition, which pits celebrities against each other on the diving board, works on a points system.

The scoring system works on a 50:50 basis - 50% of the contestants’ total points come from the judges’ marks and 50% comes from the public vote.

These positions are then ranked and the rankings are converted into points.

The highest scorer goes straight through to the next round, while the competitors in second and third place then compete in the Splash Off where they battle it out with another dive.

The judges then choose who makes it through to the next round.

The breakdown of the viewers' vote shows that as well as in the final, Splash! champion Kiely came out on top in both his heat and his semi-final.

Here is the breakdown of those public votes, showing which competitors went through to the next round and who faced each other in the "Splash Off" for their chance to move on in the competition.
