Tom Daley's Diving Show Makes Ratings Splash!
New ITV reality show defies Twitter critics to pull in huge audience...
The ITV show had its debut episode on Saturday evening and pulled in an audience of more than six million viewers - despite having taken a pasting from numerous viewers on Twitter.
The show sees a group of celebs being instructed in diving by Olympic medal-winner Tom, before being judged on their efforts by Team GB diving coach Andy Banks, Olympic silver medal-winner Leon Taylor and comic Jo Brand.
TV presenter Tim Lovejoy tweeted: "What’s going on? Is the joke on me? Am I being filmed on my sofa? #splash. Did they ever explain why Jo Brand is a judge?"
And former Cold Feet star John Thomson called the show a "new low for television".
But the show became Saturday night's most-popular programme, with Omid Djalili and Jake Canuso going through to the next round of the contest.
