Story by Jack Foley
TOM Daley is to host a second series of Splash! in 2014.
ITV’s director of entertainment and comedy Elaine Bedell has confirmed that the popular Saturday night show has been renewed for a second season.
The programme was ITV’s highest-rated new entertainment series for five years and came to an end on Saturday when Eddie ‘the Eagle’ Edwards won.
Announcing the renewal, Bedell said: “Splash! has proved itself by building a big, enthusiastic, primetime family audience. We’ve seen some quite incredible bravery from our celebrities this series, and the scale of the dives they were achieving is in no small part down to their mentor, and the star of our show, Tom Daley.
British and Olympic diving champion and bronze medallist Daley added: “I am over the moon to hear Splash! will run for a second season. It’s a dream come true for me to be involved in an entertainment show which has been so successful and also fits so well around my training schedule.”
