All in all, 15 celebrities are being coached by Daley before having to dive in front of a panel of judges and a live TV audience.

Judging the famous faces on their technique are Team GB diving coach Andy Banks, Olympic silver medal winning diver Leon Taylor and comedienne Jo Brand.

'Surreal' entertainment
