Tom Daley For Celebrity Diving Show?

Olympic star mooted as presenter for new ITV reality show...

Tom Daley is reportedly being lined up to front a celebrity diving show on ITV1.

The Olympic medal winner is claimed by The Sun to be in the frame as co-host of Celebrity Splash - a reality TV show which sees celebs learn to perform increasingly elaborate dives.

In the vein of Strictly Come Dancing or Dancing On Ice, the show will apparently see famous contestants teamed-up with professional coaches - who will train them to perform dives incorporating somersaults and backflips.

A source told the paper: "It's going to be a hilarious show which will have it all - humour, hunks in trunks and gorgeous girls.

"We are counting on this to be a big banker for next year. Everybody loved Tom at the Olympics, and this could be the perfect vehicle for him. We hope it could be as big as Total Wipeout."

The format is based on a Dutch show called Sterren Springen.
