Splash! mentor Tom Daley wants troubled Paul Gascoigne and Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding for new series!
It came as a surprise to many that last year’s first series of Splash! on ITV went from being a flop in the first week or two to being one of the most watched shows in its timeslot, so understandably, ITV announced there would be a second series soon after the first ended.
And since then, there has been speculation about which celebs may take part in series two, with Splash! mentor and Olympic diver putting on record that he’d like former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole to participate.
And today, he’s also revealed that he’d like to see troubled former footballer Paul Gascoigne – who is of course known as Gazza – to take to the diving board in series two, as well as Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding. Both stars have of course had battles with booze addictions.
Speaking to The Sun’s TV Biz, Tom said, “It’d be really interesting to have Gazza on, definitely.
“And Sarah Harding too. I don’t know how good they’d be, though.
“They either get it or they don’t.”
Tom, who as we reported yesterday is currently in Los Angeles so as to attend the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, where he’s up for an award, then remarked that he’d quite like to see One Direction singer Harry Styles on the show too.
However, he added, “Harry Styles would obviously beat me in a pulling competition. I wouldn’t stand a chance.”
Aww bless him! Here’s a reminder of Tom on Splash!
