Tom Daley says that he is "excited" to be part of the second series of Splash! following the success of its debut series.

Olympic diver Tom Daley has expressed his 'excitement' in returning for a second series of celebrity diving show Splash!.

The 18-year-old, who was given a mentoring role on the ITV show, has signed up for the new series, which was recommissioned earlier this week.

"It's a dream come true for me to be involved in an entertainment show which has been so successful and also fits so well around my training schedule," the Daily Mail quotes Daley as saying.

"Splash! has put diving on primetime TV and diving clubs all across the country have kept telling me that they now have waiting lists, following the popularity of the show. That in itself is an incredible achievement and I'm very excited to be part of it."

The teen diver, who picked up a bronze medal at the London 2012 Games, has previously claimed that he wants to go into TV presenting when his time in the sport ends.
