ITV celebrity diving show Splash! looks unlikely to return as Olympic medallist Tom Daley focuses his attentions on Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

Tom had coached the stars of the Saturday night entertainment show, which had a second run earlier this year.

Viewers have seen Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards and Diversity dancer Perri Kiely triumph in the show, which also featured Tory MP Penny Mordaunt donning her bathers for the nation.

A programme insider said: "A third series was always hanging in the balance because availability was always going to be a problem and of course Tom's diving career is going to come first.

"We always knew that his commitments to training for Rio would rightly come first but we love having him on the channel and are looking at other projects for him."

An ITV spokesman said of the future of the show: "No decision has been taken."
