Splash! star Tom Daley’s trying to persuade Cheryl Cole to join the show’s second series!
Splash! mentor and Olympic diver Tom Daley has revealed that he’s hoping that former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole will take part in the second series of the show.
Tom and Cheryl shared flirty messages on Twitter last year when she asked teenager Tom to teach her how to dive.
Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday, Tom said, “I’d love to get Cheryl Cole on.
“She would be great, maybe for a charity special if not a second series.”
And of Cheryl’s request to Tom to teach her how to dive, he said, “I haven’t given her the diving lesson I promised yet but of course I would love to.”
The paper adds, “Splash! regularly pulls in around six million viewers every Saturday night.
“Plans for a second series are in the pipeline so long as ratings hold up for last night’s semi and next week’s final.”
And it’s been reported that the show’s bosses hope to relocate from Luton to the Olympic diving venue in the hope it will attract “bigger stars” in series two.
Of the possibility of more series of Splash! Tom added, “Hopefully it will run for ten years.
“To think ten years ago if people said there was going to be a reality TV show about diving, we’d think ‘what the hell?’.
“London 2012 has really given people an insight into diving.”
