Joey Essex has signed up for Tom Daley's celebrity diving show 'Splash!'.
The 'Only Way is Essex' star - who often sports unconventional clothing on the ITV2 reality show - is one of 15 celebrities who will be coached by the Olympic bronze medallist in the forthcoming programme, and viewers are keen to see what attire the 21-year-old hunk wears to dive in.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Joey Essex has a passion for wearing strange clothes so everyone is already waiting for the first show to find out what kind of trunks or Speedos he will be wearing on that diving board.
"He will no doubt be out to shock everyone."
Katie Price's ex-boyfriend Leandro Penna and ex-Olympic ski jumper Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards have also signed up for the show, which will see a panel of experts give their views on the stars' weekly dives.
Viewers will vote on whose efforts they prefer and one will be crowned top diver at the end of the five-week ITV1 show.
Tom added: "What better way to round off 2012 by becoming involved in this great new show? It's a dream come true for me - an entertainment show all about diving.
"I'll be helping the celebrities as they master a dangerous and exciting sport and I can't wait to get started."
