Tom Daley has put the controversy surrounding his love life, his new man and that new man’s sex tape behind him and headed back to the pool and his beloved diving board.
The young star is beginning preparations for his new series of ITV show Splash and he’s been spotted this week putting the new celebrities through their paces, as he trains them to jump, spin or even just fling themselves into the water.
We revealed the lineup of the show earlier this week and now we have the pictures to prove the report.
Rugby star Austin Healey looks like he’s making great progress and boy can he rock a pair of tight trunks. He at least seems to be heading head first into the water, which we imagine is a great start for Tom.
Keith Duffy looks a little less brave and does what we do when we’re about to hit the pool. We just hold our nose and step off the edge, in the hope that our belly doesn’t hit the water first.
Who knew the boy zone star was so buff though. That’s a trim physique he’s got gong on there!
TOWIE star Dan Osborne seems to be leading the bunch though, because he can already flip! He tries his hand at a backwards dive in one shot, that or he just fell off the board rather awkwardly.
Splash! returns to ITV in the first week of January and other celebrities taking part include The Saturdays singer Una Foden, comedian Paul Ross, Hollyoaks actress Gemma Merna and model Danielle O’Hara. Sadly, Vernon Kay will return as host.
ITV have released a behind the scenes promo for the series, featuring Tom, who can we say, can totally rock a banana hammock!
