TOWIE heartthrob Dan Osborne has earned legions more fans thanks to his semi-clad diving appearances on Tom Daley's Splash! this year, but sadly for them, he was fully clothed for a visit to ITV this morning...

That being said, reality star Dan showed he looks just as good dressed as he does in trunks when he joined his fellow Splash! finalists Keith Duffy and Richard Whitehead for a chat on ITV's Lorraine on Thursday (13 February), ahead of Saturday night's finale.

(Fourth finalist Perri Kiely was unable to join them as he's unwell.)

Father-of-one Dan admitted his Splash! trunks have gained him a lot of attention on the show and revealed he has no idea what this weekend's costume will have in store for him. "I don't design [the trunks] and they weren't my own before the show so I don't know what is coming up next..."

Ladies, tune in Saturday night to find out!

This weekend Dan and the other finalists will each have to perform a dive on their own before joining Olympic medalist Tom Daley for a synchronised dive - a rather daunting task for relative diving beginners.

"He's just so good," said Dan of Tom. "When you watch him in training every time there is no splash."

While other Splash! contestants have suffered severe bruising (like Gemma Collins and Danielle Lloyd) and broken toes (like Una Healy), tattoo artist Dan says he's been lucky not to hurt himself too badly during the intensive training sessions.

"Yesterday in training I landed quite badly on my back but it was just a little bruise," he said.

Speaking of his progress since the first day of training, he added: "I've worked hard... although I've probably spent too much time talking rather than diving!"

Splash! concludes Saturday night on ITV.

Meanwhile, filming for the eleventh series of TOWIE started this week, with the show scheduled to kick off on Sunday, 23 February at 10pm on ITV2.

Since we caught up with Dan on the show last, he's become a father: his ex-girlfriend gave birth to their son Teddy in December 2013. Doting dad Dan has shared several snaps of his adorable baby with fans via Twitter. Will we see little Teddy on our TV screens too? We guess we'll have to tune in to find out!
