The medal-winning British Diver has bagged his very own primetime series, which will see him teaching celebrities how to dive
Tom Daley may already have a bronze medal under his belt and be tipped for success in Rio, but it seems he may have his eye on a TV career, too.
The Team GB star has bagged his very own primetime ITV show to be named Splash! which will see him teach celebrities how to dive.
Speaking about his latest venture, Tom Daley said: ‘2012 has been a wonderful year for me – an Olympic medal and Double Gold at the Junior World Champs.
‘What better way to round it off by becoming involved in this great new show; a dream come true for me – an entertainment show all about diving.
‘I’ll be helping the celebrities as they master a dangerous and exciting sport and I can’t wait to get started.’
The Team GB diver will star on the show alongside a team of coaches, who will put the stars through their paces as they compete to be crowned the winner.
Although a date for the first show is yet to be set, it’s thought filming could begin early next year, with the view to giving the show a Saturday night slot.
Earlier this year Tom Daley revealed he might have his eye on a career in film, too.
So could he be headed to Hollywood?
‘At the moment I am studying, but I’d like to become a TV presenter or get film work,’ he said.
‘I’d love to do anything like that. I would love to try anything new really, be it star in a film or playing a small little part in something like that, that would be pretty cool.’
