Plymouth-based Olympic medalist Tom Daley is diving into primetime TV with a new show.

Splash! will see celebrities competing against each other as they try to master the art of diving with the help of a team of professional coaches.

They will have to show off their new skills in front of a panel of judges and a live audience at a packed Olympic-size swimming pool before the public get their chance to vote for their favourite.

Daley, who won bronze in the 10-metre individual men's platform diving at the summer Games, said: "I'll be helping the celebrities as they master a dangerous and exciting sport and I can't wait to get started."
