Diversity star Perri Kiely is back to fitness and ready to head into the final of ITV contest Splash! as the runaway favourite.

The acrobatic teenage dancer had been struck by illness and there had been fears about his future in the high diving show.

But ITV said he has recovered from his "24-hour bug" and was now all set to take the plunge for the finale, rounding off the seven-week series against Keith Duffy, Dan Osborne and Richard Whitehead.

Bookmaker William Hill puts pint-sized Perri at 2/5, well ahead of his nearest favourite, Paralympic athlete Richard, who is at 2/1 to win.

The Only Way Is Essex star Dan goes into the contest at 20/1 while Boyzone star Keith trails on 25/1.

The big question is whether ITV will commission a third series of the show and, at 1/2, the latest odds from William Hill suggest that they will not.
