Splash!
Splash! returns to ITV with Olympic Bronze medal and British and European Championship winner Tom Daley. Hosted by Gabby Logan and Vernon Kay another set of celebrities will be pitched against each other to prove what goes up must come down as they learn to dive. 
 
The second show sees Boyzone’s Keith Duffy, TV Presenter Anna Williamson, singer and actress Toyah Willcox, TV and radio presenter Paul Ross and former rugby league and rugby union player Martin Offiah go up against each other.
 
Splash! sees the celebrities mix determination, drive and daredevil stunts after being trained by a team of professional coaches. As they push their limits and overcome their fears will they master the grace, skill, athleticism and accuracy needed, to perform dives from the high board? 
 
The famous faces perform live each week in the electric atmosphere of a packed Olympic size pool – in front of a panel of expert judges as the public vote for their favourites. Back on the judging panel are Team GB’s Diving coach Andy Banks, comedienne, writer and actress Jo Brand and former Olympic diving medalist Leon Taylor.
 
At the end of each 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.
