Interior designer Linda Barker got off to an excellent start in ITV's new entertainment show Splash!

Barker, jumping from the 7.5m board, wowed the judges and Olympic medalist Tom Daley - receiving 25.5 out of 30 for her effort.

She was followed by comedian Dom Joly, who fluffed his attempt and ended with 20 points.
