ITV orders Eyeworks dive format with Tom Daley from Twofour
01 November 2012
ITV has commissioned Splash! (w/t) from Twofour, a new entertainment series that pitches celebrities against each other as they learn to dive.
Splash! is based on the Dutch format Sterren Springen (internationally known as Celebrity Splash!); it rated as Holland’s number one entertainment show last season.
The UK show features Olympic Bronze medal and British and European Championship winner Tom Daley.ã€€
A team of professional coaches will train the celebrities. They will perform live each week in an Olympic size pool in front of a panel of expert judges as the public vote for their favourites. ã€€
The format is owned by Eyeworks. It was commissioned by ITV’s director of Entertainment and Comedy Elaine Bedell and commissioning editor Asif Zubairy and will be executive produced for Twofour by Shirley Jones.
