Splash! with Tom Daley begins tonight on ITV1

Olympic bronzes medalist, Tom Daley, will take part in ITV’s new entertainment show Splash!

The show will see fifteen celebrities try to make their finest dives as experts rate their efforts and viewers vote for their favourites.

Tonight’s show will see actor Jake Canuso, comic Omid Djalili, Sugababe Jade Ewen, presenter Jenni Falconer and comedienne Helen Lederer don their swimwear and take to the diving boards as they try to master one of sport’s most difficult disciplines on primetime TV.

The second show sees entrepreneur and model Caprice, Olympic ski jumper Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards, TV star Joey Essex, TV gardener Diarmuid Gavin and TV presenter Charlotte Jackson go up against each other.

And the third heat will show TV presenter Linda Barker, funny-man Dom Joly, actress Tina Malone and Olympic boxer Anthony Ogogo all compete for the final two places in the semi-finals.

Presented by Gabby Logan and Vernon Kay, the show will see each contestant mix determination and drive as they chose which board to dive off before they plunge into the water and display the daredevil skills they have learnt.

Mentored by Tom Daley, the contestants will be given their scores by judges; Tom Daley and Team GB’s Diving coach Andy Banks, comedienne, writer and actress Jo Brand and former Olympic diving medalist Leon Taylor before the phone lines open for viewers to pick their favourite.

At the end of the show, the contestant at the top of the leader board will go through to the semi-final whilst the next two contestants face a Splash!-off. The judges will then decide which diver was the most successful in the Splash!-off and they too will go through to the semi-final.

Splash! begins tonight at 7.15pm on ITV1
