The Hollyoaks actress Jennifer Metcalfe has reportedly quit Tom Daley's new primetime diving show, because she didn't want to be seen as a "Samia copycat," - a reference to the former Coronation Street actress Samia Ghandie who is reportedly dating her ex-boyfriend Sylvain Longchambon.

The professional skater split with Metcalfe to be with Ghandie last Friday - according to The Sun newspaper - leaving the Hollyoaks star heartbroken and unable to complete on 'Splash.' It is assumed Samia and Sylvain intend to go ahead with their appearance on Dancing On Ice, which begins on Sunday (January 6, 2013). A source close to Jennifer said, "She feared it looked like she was going head-to-head with Samia." 

Metcalfe - who plays Mercedes McQueen on the Channel 4 soap - was scheduled to appear in Tom Daley's celebrity diving show, which hits screens tomorrow evening. The likes of Joey Essex, Jade Ewan, Dom Joly and Linda Barker will attempt to master the art of diving in an Olympic-size swimming pool, leaving the public to vote for their favourite. Vernon Kay and Gabby Logan will present the show, while British star Daley will offer expert help.
