Celebrity Splash! was an Australian reality television series that followed "celebrities" as they try to master the art of diving. The program premiered on the Seven Network on 29 April 2013 and was hosted by Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies.[1] The celebrities performed each week in front of a panel of judges and a live audience in an Olympic-size diving pool with the result each week partly determined by home viewers.[2] After poor ratings, the show was moved from its original prime-time slot, with the second semi-final episode shelved. Instead, the show's grand final aired on 16 May. The grand final ended with all fourteen celebrities diving into the pool together after the winner was announced, including the (clothed!) hosts.

The format for the show was a franchise that originated in the Netherlands by television production company Eyeworks.,[3] and was broadcast on SBS 6 as Sterren Springen (Celebrities Jump). The British version is known as Splash!.

Cast[edit]

The cast was announced on 20 March 2013. Due to injury Laura Csortan was forced to withdraw from the competition, with Derek Boyer coming in as a last-minute replacement.[4]
