Keith took part in the celebrity diving competition hosted by Vernon Kay and Gaby Logan, with expert coaching from

Tom Daley.

 

In his heat, Keith was up against Martin Offiah, Paul Ross, Anna Williamson and Toyah Wilcox. With his Inward dive with tuck from the 7.5m board, Keith finished the evening at the top of the leaderboard on 24.5 points and was voted straight through to the semi-finals by the viewers.

 

For the semi-final, Keith was diving with a back injury that he picked up in training, but he took on both his dives in the best way he could. He received 21.5 out of 30 from the judges for his first (T-start forward pike fall from the 10m) and 23 for his second (Forward 1 1⁄2 somersault with tuck from the 5m). Up against Perri Kiely from Diversity, Michaela Strachan and Danielle Lloyd; it was Perri that made it straight through to the final on viewers votes. Keith then had to dive again in the splash-off against Michaela and the judges put Keith through to the final,

2 to 1.

 

In a hard-fought final which saw all 4 contestants take on a synchro dive alongside Tom Daley, as well as an individual dive; Keith finished the evening bottom of the leaderboard on 51 points from the judges but was pushed up to third on viewers votes. Perry Kiely won, with paralympian Richard Whitehead taking the runner-up spot.
