The water may barely have settled sinceSplash!
The celebrity diving show, which features Olympic medal-winner Tom Daleyas a mentor, was the subject of numerous jibes from critics and Twitter users - but became a ratings hit despite (or perhaps because of) that.
Daley will return with the show next year, and said in a statement: "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.
"Splash! has put diving on primetime TV and diving clubs all across the country have kept telling me that they now have waiting lists, following the popularity of the show.
"That in itself is an incredible achievement and I'm very excited to be part of it."
And ITV exec Elaine Bedell was equally enthusiastic.
She 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.
"We're looking forward to even more Saturday night spectacle, and sparkle, with the second series."
In addition to the diving, the show has also brought us a brilliant letter from Tom's angry mum to the head of British Swimming after he criticised her son for taking part.
