Keith gets a Splash of nerves for TV finale

Splash! finalist Keith Duffy has admitted he's battling nerves ahead of his last dives.

The Boyzone star (below) said he missed the "safety" of being in a group as he prepares for the finale.

The Irish star, who is in the final with Paralympian Richard Whitehead and The Only Way is Essex's Dan Osborne, said: "Boyzone is shared amongst my best friends in the world and this a solo project for me.

"It's nice to do something on your own, but at the same time I'm getting to the stage now where I kind of miss the lads and I'm looking forward to getting back together with them now."

The former Coronation Street star confessed: "I don't think I'm going to come first in Splash! but I'm in the final, so that's a huge achievement."

"It hasn't really been a competition, it's been vigorous training, it's been learning a new discipline. You're coming away with a new skill and that's been really enjoyable."

Fellow finalist Perri Kiely is battling illness to be fit for the TV diving show's finish.

A show insider said he had "a bug" but was confident he would make the final.
