Tom Daley Dives Into TV With New Primetime Show
Tom Daley is set for further stardom following his bronze medal win at the 2012 London Olympics with the upcoming ITV entertainment show 'Splash!' that will feature the diver training celebrities in his sport.
The 18-year-old may not have landed gold in this year's Games but that doesn't mean he can't expect a potential showbiz career as a runner up, and dare we mention Hollywood? Yes, as if we haven't already got enough reality shows hitting our screens already, Daley is soon to host a celebrity TV contest show featuring various stars being trained in the art of diving and subsequently competing against each other for the winner's crown. '2012 has been a wonderful year for me - an Olympic medal and Double Gold at the Junior World Champs', he gushed to Marie Claire. 'What better way to round it off by becoming involved in this great new show. I'll be helping the celebrities as they master a dangerous and exciting sport and I can't wait to get started.'
He describes the venture as 'a dream come true' though it seems that his sights are set even higher. 'I'd like to become a TV presenter or get film work', he has said previously. 'I would love to try anything new really, be it star in a film or playing a small little part in something like that, that would be pretty cool.'
