Just seen an Advert for this show, another 'celebrity does something they dont normally do just to get on TV' show.

Tom Daley will teach celebrities to do dives, sounds awful to me, but got me to thinking who do we think will be on it?

I will have to take a punt that Joe Swash will be chomping at the bit to be on it, any others?

The celebrity lineup for Itv1's new tom daley diving show Splash is terrible:

Jade Ewen
Donna Air
Adele Silva
Zoe Tyler
Helen Lederer
Jenni Falconer

Jake Canuso
Leandro Penna
Kenzie
Joey Essex
Eddie Edwards
Omid Djalili

This was a hit in Holland but Im now certain it's not gonna be one here. In order for a show to have a chance of becoming a hit, a good amount of effort and money had to go into getting a decent set of celebrities. Clearly Itv arent putting in that kind of effort here, hardly any of these lot are well known. In the lineup where's the politicians which would get the broadsheets talking, the fatter celebs for joke value, the good looking young celebs that magazines and tabloids would drool over? Nothings there to make it interesting or to create a buzz. A shame that after spending money on actually acquiring this format from Mipcom, Itv has just killed off the show with such a bad lineup. I revise my predction down to 3.5million.
Really makes you salivate with that lineup eh !!!

Omid Djalili must have a big tax bill to pay !

Wonder what the ratings were for the Olympic diving?
Aside from Tom Daley cannot imagine they set the world on fire.

Beach Volleyball would have been a better punt IMHO.
I certainly watched a lot of that !!

A Celeb version would definitely be popular - but maybe indoors so they don't have to wear the cold weather sweat suits.

For the diving (the individuals i believe), i think it had a total peak of 15m across three channels.

Why is that philip schofield getting all the work? Let the young ones have a chance!! He's made enough money. He should either work for nothing or be sent to itv4!

no probs

just to clarify that the list of contestants posted as fact in the ratings thread was lifted from my post here


http://forums.digitalspy.co.uk/showp...9&postcount=32



and isn't a confirmed list, it's my guess according to tweets

Jake Canuso (is sn actor who plays Mateo in Benidorm and is an ex dancer who was in a lot of music vids in the 80s/90s and was a backing dancer for the Spice Girls ) he' looks good in speedos

If they have any replays of the dives, will they be labelled as "splashbacks"

I thought she was working in a shop in the US after failing to crack Hollywood. She is awful....

But I shall be giving it a look just to see Tom and to see Omid belly flopping.

This is going to be awful. How many times can you watch them dive into the pool. It will flop after the first show. Superstars was poor too.

No doubt they will wear huge unflattering costumes they would not be seen dead wearing in real life.
