Former Rugby League player Martin Offiah will now take his place.

Wilding said: "I was genuinely loving the opportunity to learn an Olympic event that I had admired since I was a little kid, so I'm bitterly disappointed to get injured in this way.

"I am very much looking forward to watching the series when it starts!"

Earlier this week, Wilding told his Twitter fans that he was due to have surgery on an injury sustained to his leg.


Tom Daley's Splash! will kick off on Saturday, January 4 at 7.20pm.

Rumoured celebs for series two include Digital Spy's Anna Williamson, TV presenter Paul Ross, soap star Gemma Merna, Saturdays singer Una Foden and TOWIE's Gemma Collins.
