Hollyoaks star Jennifer Metcalfe will star in the new ITV reality series called Splash. Beautiful Metcalfe has recently been dumped by Sylvain Longchambon, who traded her off for Corrie star Samia Ghadie, but Tom Daley is coming to her rescue with Splash. I know, the show doesn’t replace the relationship, but it’s a good distraction.
The pretty actress will be hoping to wash all her recent relationship troubles away as she learns to dive on the ITV show with the help of Olympic star Tom Daley.
Jen was left heartbroken after being dumped by her Dancing On Ice lover Sylvain Longchambon just days before Christmas.
The French skater ditched the 29-year-old after “developing feelings” for his new dance partner — Corrie beauty Samia Ghadie.
Jen, who plays Mercedes McQueen in Hollyoaks, met and fell in love with Sylvain when they danced together on the skating show two years ago.
But he ditched the brunette by PHONE after falling for 30-year-old Samia, the Street’s Maria Connor.
Now Sylvain, 32, and new love Samia will be seen dancing together on the Sunday night ITV1 hit while Jen joins the line-up for rival Saturday night reality show Splash!
The series, presented by Gabby Logan and Vernon Kay, will see 15 celebs learn to dive from a ten-metre board.
Five stars will take the plunge each week but only two of the contestants will go through to the semi-final.
The first show will see actor Jake Canuso, comic Omid Djalili, Sugababe Jade Ewen, presenter Jenni Falconer and comedienne Helen Lederer take to the diving boards.
The second show sees entrepreneur and model Caprice, Olympic ski jumper Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards, TV star Joey Essex, TV gardener Diarmuid Gavin and TV presenter Charlotte Jackson go up against each other.
