Splash! Now Ricky Groves Suffers Injury
Ex-EastEnders actor hits his ‘knacker fat’ during training…
Speaking to The Sun, the former East Enders actor revealed: “The other day I hit my 'knacker fat' – that little bulge just above your bits. God, it was painful! If you hit the water the wrong way, you know about it.”
The actor went on to describe his huge admiration for diver Tom Daley.
“Diving is the hardest sport I have ever done, and that includes skiing and snowboarding. When you look down over the edge of the board. it’s terrifying," he said.
"My admiration for Tom Daley has gone through the roof. People just don’t appreciate how brave he is."
Ricky will be among the first group of celebs to take to the diving board in this Saturday’s launch show. He will be joined by Hollyoaks star Gemma Merna, Diversity dancer Perri Kiely, TOWIE’s Gemma Collins and TV presenter Michaela Strachan.
