The Olympian reveals his concerns for new diving show Splash!

Diving star Tom Daley is having trouble training 15 celebrities for his new TV programme Splash!

The 18-year-old Olympian – who has rounded up stars including Katie Price’s ex Leandro Penna and TOWIE‘s Joey Essex to compete in the diving reality show – is worried his contestants won’t have the guts to see it through. 

‘You need courage just to be able to even stand up there,’ he says.

‘You’re up their half-naked as well so there’s also that to overcome.’

But Tom is sure that his celebs just need a confidence boost and still has high hopes for the show that will air on ITV1 next month.

‘You have to be supportive with them,’ he tells The Sun, ‘and the stuff we’ve filmed so far is funny.’
