Tom Daley will star on 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'
The Olympic diver has signed up to gruel it out in the Australian jungle after he impressed bosses while filming his recent travel adventures for new show 'Tom Daley Goes Global'.
Tom previously admitted he was "scared and nervous" ahead of his trip around the world, where he came face-to-face with poisonous spiders, ate scorpions and took on a skydive in a series of Bushtucker Trial-style challenges set by producers.
According to the Daily Star newspaper, producers are hoping the 19-year-old star will make for entertaining viewing in the jungle, as he was so scared during his stay in a Thai beach hut that he quit and checked into a hotel.
'Tom Daley Goes Global' is set to air on April 10 and follows the diver and his best friend Sophie as they backpack around Thailand, Japan, Australia, Morocco and New Zealand for six weeks, roughing it in hostels and on night trains.
Tom will be hooking up with some of his well-known friends, such as Mollie King, along the way.
Meanwhile, the status of Tom's other show, 'Splash!', remains up int he air, but it's thought ITV will axe the series after two years.
