''I'm thrilled to be able to tell my Digital Spy family first officially that I'm to take part in the upcoming series of Splash! for ITV," she said.

"The training is hardcore but under the watchful eye of coach Tom Daley I'm starting to learn the art of diving.

"It's so much harder than it looks, trust me, and the heights are petrifying!"

Williamson also told Digital Spy that her work with mental health and children's charities inspired her to sign up for the show.

"As a ChildLine counsellor I work with young people on facing their fears, and helping them set personal goals," she explained.

"I've decided to practise what I preach and give Splash! a go, tackling my own fear of swimming pools and heights!"

She added: "Hopefully I don't bottle it on the live show!''

Tom Daley's Splash! returns to ITV on Saturday, January 4 at 7.20pm.
