Tom Daley has revealed his dream is to convince Louis Walsh to don a pair of speedos for ITV diving competition 'Spalsh!'

Tom Daley wants Louis Walsh to star in 'Spalsh!'

The Olympic diver has high hopes for the second series of the wacky ITV diving competition and thinks the sight of 'X Factor' judge Louis in a pair of skin-tight Speedos would help pull in a bigger audience.

Discussing the show's return with Digital Spy, he said: "[I'm] really excited. The first series did pretty well and I'm looking forward to doing it again, improving it and making it even better, and to see if we can get the viewing figures up even more.

"Someone said to me a few months ago about how hilarious it would be to see Louis Walsh doing it, and ever since I've had an image of seeing Louis Walsh trying to dive off a board.

"He would be funny to try and teach how to dive! Louis Walsh in his Speedos!"

The 18-year-old hunk - who is busy lining up celebrities willing show off their diving skills - also admits his primetime presenting gig has inspired him to pursue a career in TV once his sporting dreams come to an end.

He explained: "I wouldn't want to do anything too serious. I'd want to do something more light-hearted and fun. I wouldn't want to take it too seriously, like news reading."
