With the final of diving series Splash! on ITV1 tonight, Saturday February 2, at 7:00pm, mentor Tom Daley has said he wants to return for a second season.

The Press Association reports that the Olympic bronze medallist said: "I don't know whether a second series is going ahead, but I'd love to be involved because it's a show that I've really enjoyed doing and something that I'd love to do as long as I can.

"I'd love to think diving can stay on primetime TV for as long as possible because I think it's something people can enjoy. The Olympics have really given the sports that don't have as many people watching them a bit of a boost."

He continued: "There's always going to be criticism with the first show because it's getting things going and getting it all sorted.

"Each show's got better and better and the viewing figures have stayed up. I think it's kind of changing most of the critics' opinions now which is great."

Ski jumper Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards, interior designer Linda Barker and Benidorm actor Jake Canuso will contest the final.
