Those taking part in the first heat include former EastEnders actor Ricky Groves, Hollyoaks beauty Gemma Merna and TV presenter Michaela Strachan. Diversity star Perri Kieley and The Only Way Is Essex’s Gemma Collins are also participating.

It is also already confirmed that Una Foden of girlband The Saturdays will be competing further down the line in a later heat.

Tom Daley said of this year’s bunch:

“The first series of Splash! really struck a chord with people. I think audiences connected with it because they could tell the celebrities were really having fun.

“The talent in this series has been incredible, too. After just two days of training, all the celebrities were further ahead than the guys last year were after three weeks. They have all been so incredibly brave.”
