Olympic diver Tom Daley has signed up to fly to Australia to appear in I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here after impressing ITV bosses while doing his new travel show.
In Daley’s new travel show, Tom Daley Goes Global, he goes out of his strict training routine and comfort zone and visits Thailand, Japan, Australia, Morocco and New Zealand.
During his trip, he takes on some Bushtucker Trail-style adventures. Daley eats scorpions, does a skydive and roughs it in backpacker hostels.
It’s believed that ITV execs saw the entertainment potential in Daley after he got scared while staying in a hut on a Thai beach and decided to check into a hotel instead.
Tom Daley’s new travel show comes after I’m a Celebrity… stars Mark Wright and Joey Essex’s recent travel shows, Party Wright around the World and Educating Joey Essex, respectively.
Tom Daley Goes Global begins at 9pm, Thursday 10 April on ITV.
