I don't think there was any diving on Jo Brands splash - but then again Alisha Dixon or whatver was on Strictly Ball room dancing without being a dancer!!!

Exactly

I spotted Splash in the EPG, but I assumed it was the Tom Hanks film and didn't set it to record.

Was it any good?

Sterling bit of defence from his mum though:

The public slanging match that his mother and David Sparkes are engaged is pretty embaressing. That Daley is tweeting his support of his mother is pretty short sighted on his part.

Can't help but think that Daley is just making a dick of himself, he's presenting a shit program and his mother is fighting his battles for him. The guy needs a decent manager.

You say it's short sighted but it's all publicity for him - how many other bronze medallists could most of us even name ?

No I said publically supporting his mothers attack on Sparkes was shortsighted

OK you said the public slanging match was embarassing and he's making a dick of himself - but he's in the papers and on TV when most of us couldn't name plenty of our other medallists.   Whether his manager has anything to do with it or not I don't know but he seems to be doing OK out of his career as things are.

If you ask me, it's Sparkes who needs a decent manager or PR person!

My opinion;

The program is bad. The experts (and Jo Brand) are bland and cliched, the hosts are amaturish, the commentater is a pr!ck, the format is woeful, the circus act diving bits are lame. all in all sh!t!

They should start with video were the celebs are introduced (5 mins) and go trough their training, all the breakdowns and belly flops (15 mins).

Then straight into the live diving, the judges can commentate as they dive and critique during the replays. A quick "how dya think that went?" interview once they get out, get the scores and on to the next celeb dive, and repeat.

Then they all dive again. Best dive scores. Countback for a tie. Top two go through, no phone votes. (that wont happen, got to make ££££££££)

Eddie rightfully went through and Caprice was robbed. It was a travesty.

Can't wait til next week.
