The “celebrity diving series” will launch on Saturday evening with Gabby Logan and Vernon Kay hosting the series with Tom Daley coaching the contestants in diving. So which celebrities will be throwing themselves off the edge of the diving board?
Well TOWIE‘s Joey Essex and glamour model Caprice are just two of the celebrities. Hollyoaks actress Jennifer Metcalfe and Shameless actress Tina Malone are also taking part. Comedy actress Helen Lederer (Absolutely Fabulous) and comedians Dom Joly and Omid Djalili are taking part. Sky Sports presenter Charlotte Jackson, TV presenter Jenni Falconer and TV ‘garden expert’ Diarmuid Gavin are also part of the line-up for the first series. Rounding off the celebrity contestants will be boxer Anthony Ogogo, Sugababes singer Jade Ewen, Changing Rooms’ Linda Barker and ski jumper Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards.
ITV will be hoping the series is a success and won’t follow in the footsteps of Celebrity Wrestling which proved to be a huge flop for the broadcaster.
