After crashing out of new ITV1 diving show 'Splash!' at the first hurdle, Jade Ewen says she is "happy" the experience is over but is "thrilled" to have taken part
Jade Ewen is "happy" 'Splash!' is over.
The 24-year-old crashed out of the ITV1 show on Saturday night (05.01.13) after achieving a low score of 18 out of 30, and while she is "thrilled" to have taken part, the Sugababe admits she was "terrified" on the show.
She said: "The whole thing was terrifying and I was a nervous wreck just looking at the board.
"I cried at the start because I felt so embarrassed. But I'm happy to say it's over and I was thrilled to have taken part."
Despite being voted off the first show - which sees Olympic diver Tom Daley teach celebrities how to dive - Jade wowed in a stunning gold bikini, buts admits she was embarrassed to find her fellow contestants Jenni Falconer and Helen Lederer covered up in one-pieces.
The brunette beauty added to the Daily Star newspaper: "Because of my build, they said I'm ideal for diving because I shoot through the water like a pencil. But it means I go really deep, really quickly and that's my worst nightmare.
"The wardrobe lady told me to wear a bikini to start my training because I'd be wearing a similar thing on the night and I could get a feel of it. I did what I was told and turned up on the first day and Jenni and Helen were in full one-pieces.
"They were told specifically not to wear bikinis in case they came off in the water. Someone obviously thought it would make good TV if mine came off."
