Louie Spence wants to compete on the next series of 'Splash!'.
The dance expert is a massive fan of the ITV diving show and has told bosses he is ready to jump into the pool after the programme was recommissioned for a second series.
Louie was such an avid follower of the debut series he even went to watch mentor Tom Daley and the celebrities during filming in Luton.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Louie can't wait to get in the pool with Tom. He reckons that he's the perfect candidate for the show."
The programme - hosted by Vernon Kay and Gabby Logan - sees a group of celebrities get taught to dive by Olympics bronze medallist Tom and it made waves when it hit screens in January.
The first series was won by former ski jumper Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards and the final peaked with an impressive 6.6 million viewers.
Tom, 18, is thrilled it will be coming back, saying: "I am over the moon to hear 'Splash!' will run for a second season. It's a dream come true for me to be involved in an entertainment show which has been so successful and also fits so well around my training schedule. 'Splash!' has put diving on prime time TV and diving clubs all across the country have kept telling me that they now have waiting lists, following the popularity of the show. That in itself is an incredible achievement and I'm very excited to be part of it."
A US version of the show is also being made starring former Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson.
