Not to mention being the star of ITV1’s strangest reality show Splash!

And yesterday one of Tom’s new pals dropped by to wish him well during rehearsals.

One Direction’s Niall Horan, 19, decided to pop in at the Luton swimming pool where Splash! is filmed to have a catch up with Tom, 18.

Uploading a picture of himself with the singer on his Instagram page, Tom Daley seemed at home in his surroundings unlike Niall who looked somewhat over dressed for a poolside reunion.

Tom wrote alongside the picture: “Nice visit from @NiallHoran at the #Splash rehearsals :) good to see you man!”

Despite getting a royal panning from critics, Splash! has continued to be a ratings success for ITV winning the title of the most watched program on a Saturday night for the second week running.

Overnight numbers revealed that the show attracted 5.16 million viewers with an additional 248,000 people tuning in an hour later on ITV +1.

Last night saw Eddie ‘the Eagle’ Edwards go through to the semi-final after topping the leader board with his forward one and one half somersault pike off the 10 metre platform.

‘The Only Way is Essex’ star Joey Essex and Sky Sports broadcaster Charlotte Jackson were then made to dive again in the aptly named ‘Splash Off’.

Despite what seemed to be the entire population of Essex cheering Joey on from the audience, Charlotte won the judges over and progressed to the next round.
