Vernon Kay thinks Tom Daley's cult diving show 'Splash!' has finally found its feet and is getting better each week

Vernon Kay thinks 'Splash!' has finally found its feet.

The ITV show - which sees Olympic bronze medallist Tom Daley teach celebrities how to dive - was criticised when it first aired, but co-host Vernon insists it is improving each week and is pleased it's so talked about.

Vernon - who presents the show alongside Gabby Logan - said: "It's good, it's that kind of watercooler moment and I think that's what you want for a prime time ITV show is everyone talking about it - good or bad. I think the first show, there were some technical issues and then we found our feet and now we are peaking at over six and a half million viewers."

Vernon loves being part of the show but admits he gets very nervous whenever a celebrity takes to the diving board.

Speaking on ITV's 'This Morning', he said: "I am nervous when they are diving, yes! ... When you get on that 10-metre board, I was sat up there doing a link speaking to the camera that goes across the top, and I looked down before I started and I got the knee shakes! It was high up."
