It seems Tom Daley has set his sights on becoming a screen sensation since starring in his diving TV show, Splash!…

Olympic diver Tom Daley has found his dream job with his role on Saturday night show Splash!, but it seems he hopes it will lead the way to much bigger TV and film opportunities.

The teen sports star revealed that his new show has been the perfect opportunity to gain TV experience: "I’ve always said that I want to be a TV presenter after I’ve finished diving. Luckily for me, Splash! has meant that I can continue to train full time while gaining experience on TV."

So, what's next? "Once I’ve retired from diving, I’d love to present something on Saturday night TV," he elaborated. Adding that he wouldn't rule out heading to Hollywood: "I would give it a go – how about a remake of Tarzan or George Of The Jungle."

For now though he's content just to have brought diving into the limelight: "It’s amazing to have a minority sport like diving on prime time TV. If Splash! can encourage even a handful of people to take up diving, it will have been a success."
