Tom Daley is set to front his new TV show, Tom Daley Takes On The World on ITV2. The series will follow the life of the Olympic diver and his best friend, Sophia Lee, as they travel the world on a back-packing trip.

During the six-week show, the bronze medallist will visit places such as Thailand, Japan, Australia, Morocco and New Zealand on his global tour.

"I can't wait to get away on my trip," said the athlete. "Diving and training are my first love, but I am looking forward to a break from the norm and discovering more about places I've never had the chance to explore before. And to do it all with my best friend will be amazing."

The 19-year-old will be living like a typical student as he heads to hostels and taking overnight train journeys. Daley will also have the chance to test his skills as he'll take on challenges such as bungee jumping and flying a jet plane.

He is also expected to meet up with celebrity friends along the way, including The Saturdays' Mollie King.

ITV are not dumping the athlete's diving show, Splash! which is set to return for a second series in 2014. How could it not return after moments like this...
