The semi finals of Splash is tonight.I just wish I could get those damned butterflies out of my stomach!
The first Splash! semi-final will take place tonight with Diversity's Perri Kiely, TV presenter Michaela Strachan, model Danielle Lloyd and Boyzone's Keith Duffy vying for a place in the final.
The celebrities, who have been mentored by Olympian Tom Daley, will perform two dives each to impress the judging panel of diving experts Andy Banks and Leon Taylor and comedian Jo Brand.
The two celebrities who will make it through to the final will be decided by a combination of the judges' scores and results of a public vote revealed at the end of the show.
Splash! will be broadcast on ITV at 6.50pm
Comedienne Jenny Eclair, former rugby union player Austin Healey, singer Una Foden from The Saturdays, TV presenter Pollyanna Woodward and Paralympic athlete Richard Whitehead are awaiting the result on tonight's Splash! The winning divers will head into the semi-finals.
Olympic medal-winning diver Tom Daley is to move to London as he switches his training base to the capital.
Daley will work alongside newly appointed Jane Figueiredo as he switches his 2016 Olympic training to the London Aquatics Centre at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The 19-year-old won his London 2012 bronze medal at the centre and was also the first person to dive from the boards at its official opening, ahead of the Olympics.
"Plymouth will obviously always be my home but after thinking long and hard about my future in diving, I have decided that a change will be beneficial to my development," Daley said.
Tom Daley stripped off for his show stopping performance on this week's Splash! Tom took off his shirt before diving from the 10m board to swim with synchronised swimmers dressed as mermaids.
Anna Williamson and Toya Wilcox went in to the Splash Off and dived again with Anna making it through to the semi-finals.
She was joined by Former Boyzone singer Keith Duffy.
The Only Way Is Essex star Gemma Collins revealed the extent of her unfortunate bruising from her training before embarking on her first televised dive in Tom Daley's ITV show Splash!
Collins also said she had to overcome a fear of water as well as vertigo before taking part in rehearsals for the show.
The TOWIE favourite is competing with TV presenter Michaela Strachan, Hollyoaks star Gemma Merna, Diversity dancer Perri Kiely and former Eastenders actor Ricky Groves.
A raft of celebrities will take the plunge tonight as they line-up on the diving board in the new series of TV diving contest Splash!Read the full story ›
TV presenter Michaela Strachan claims the pain of a disastrous plunge on TV diving contest Splash! is not as terrifying as being seen in a skimpy swimsuit.
The Autumnwatch host, who will be seen taking part in the first heat of the ITV celebrity show tomorrow, has already been hurt and said it was like being spanked with plywood.
But the 47-year-old said: "The scariest thing was having to do a photocall in a swimsuit. I don't do glamour. I'm an outdoor person who is more comfortable in khaki and a woolly hat."
She is among the celebrities hoping to emulate Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards, who won the first series of the contest a year ago.
Among those affected by the travel disruption because of the storms is Olympic diver Tom Daley.
The 19-year-old revealed that his mother had to pick him up from London after his train to Bristol had been cancelled, during a conversation with Little Britain star Matt Lucas on Twitter.
Not cool to cancel trains at Xmas :(
@tomdaley1994 At this point folk will be about to respond with either ‘Come to mine’ or ‘Why don’t you swim there?’. Just letting you know.
@realmattlucas I opted for the mother coming to pick me up! :) ha from Bristol anyway :/ I'm headed for the west country!!!
