Gabby Logan feels confident celebrity diving show 'Splash!', which she co-hosted with Vernon Kay, will return after the Brazil 2016 Olympics

Gabby Logan is confident 'Splash!' will return after the Brazil 2016 Olympics.

The 41-year-old TV presenter hosted Tom Daley's celebrity diving show alongside Vernon Kay until it was cancelled in February after a two-series run, but she thinks it would be great if the programme had a "little break" and then returned to the small screen following the South American sporting spectacle.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "It's definitely not coming back at the moment. I think a lot of it is Tom's diary, next year is the year before the Olympics and his diary will start to get full up.

"The first year we did it was the year after the London 2012 Olympics so that was really good.

"It would be quite nice to give it a little break and then come back, maybe post-2016 Olympics across a week, we could do it every night for a week.

"The thing about 'Splash!' is it's not the same as 'Strictly' where you build up the relationship with the people.

"It's a different dynamic but I think it's still got some legs. Kids loved it and people were talking about it a lot."

Should 'Splash!' return then football fanatic Gabby would love to see David and Victoria Beckham take to the water, but failing that she would be just as happy if comedian John Bishop signed up to the show.

The blonde star - who is known for presenting numerous sporting events on TV, including deputising for current 'Match of the Day' host Gary Lineker - added: "I've always said that the ideal couple, which would never happen, would be David and Victoria Beckham. That would be my dream. Can you imagine the outfit Victoria would design?

"Failing that then someone like John Bishop, who is very sporty.

"I like jokers on it, people who have got a sense of humour. But the thing is, you can get jokers on it and then suddenly they start becoming really serious.

"Sometimes the most unlikely people make really good telly."

While Gabby - who has nine-year-old twins Reuben and Lois with husband Kenny Logan - is keen for 'Splash!' to return, she is very busy working in various jobs at the moment but admitted she enjoys the organisation that comes with juggling motherhood and her career.

Speaking while sharing her tips on work/life balance as part of Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 campaign, she said: "I remember looking at my mum before I had kids and thinking, 'How does she do all that stuff?' You have to be very organised, but I don't mind being organised."
