Reception Splash! (British TV series)_section_5

The show received generally poor reviews from critics after its premiere, including "utterly awful", "a new low for television" and "probably the worst programme ever screened in primetime". Splash! (British TV series)_sentence_21

Despite the critical drubbing, however, it achieved reasonable ratings and was recommissioned for a second series. Splash! (British TV series)_sentence_22

Concern was shown for Daley's role in the show by the head of British Swimming David Sparkes, who claimed that he is in danger of putting his media work before his sporting career, and possibly hampering his chances of a gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Splash! (British TV series)_sentence_23

Andy Banks, Daley's coach at Plymouth Diving and British Swimming, hit back at Sparkes' criticism airing his concerns that such negative comments might take the fun out of diving for Daley and indeed drive him away from the sport altogether to pursue his media career. Splash! (British TV series)_sentence_24

Daley eventually won a bronze medal in the men's synchronized platform dive in the 2016 Games. Splash! (British TV series)_sentence_25

Heat 3 contestant Tina Malone made negative comments in an interview with Liverpool radio station Juice FM several days before her appearance on the show. Splash! (British TV series)_sentence_26

She called this and other reality shows "garbage" as well as stating that "It’s the big fat cheques that make me happy" in reference to the fact she appears in such TV shows only for the financial reward. Splash! (British TV series)_sentence_27

International versions Splash! (British TV series)_section_6

A US version, under the title Splash, premiered on 19 March 2013 from the Riverside Aquatics Complex at Riverside City College and Pasadena's Rose Bowl Aquatics Center on ABC television. Splash! (British TV series)_sentence_28

The US version features 2012 Olympic 10 m diving champion David Boudia and American diving legend Greg Louganis as judges. Splash! (British TV series)_sentence_29

The Seven Network in Australia have also commissioned Celebrity Splash! Splash! (British TV series)_sentence_30

which aired in 2013. Splash! (British TV series)_sentence_31

In 2015, a Lithuanian version of the show, called Šuolis, premiered on TV3. Splash! (British TV series)_sentence_32
