I can't wait to see Joey doing belly flops in his Speedos alongside Tom Daley
So, Splash starts on ITV1 in the New Year.
Hailing from Holland (like all amazing reality TV – Big Brother, etc!), the show has been a huuuuuge success over there – and the format has now been snapped up in the UK, as well as the States.
And guess what the premise is? Celebs learning to dive. Simples.
Remember Channel 4’s The Games?
I loved watching celebrities getting competitive. Sport brings out the best – and the very worst in people. Tee hee!
Check out the YouTube video at the end of this blog to see the orginal Dutch version of the show. Belly flops, bikinis, bulgy bits – what more could you want?!
Can Joey even swim? Will his fake tan turn the swimming pool orange? Will Sam Faiers turn up poolside to cheer her man on? I can’t wait to find out.
I can bet you one thing – Joey will be sporting the reemest, and tightest trunks around. And Splash will totally wash away my January blues.
Joey’s sure to go far on the show – even if it’s just for his comedy value.
But who knows? Joey could actually be the next Tom Daley… maybe!
