MMMMFFFFFF……

 

I’ll stop. There are OTHER reasons why you will be watching the second series.

1. For example, you’ll enjoy wondering why most of the show consists of him wearing this very stange thing called “clothes”. Yeah, I know.

3. And the fact that Gabby Logan manages to say this with a straight face at the start of each week’s show.

4. And you particularly admire the fact that a show consisting of about ten three-second dives…

13. BUT NEVER MIND THAT. It’s the results. The “celebrities” are now lined up on small diving boards.

OMG.
