For all the talk of our "integrated" media, the separate disciplines don't half love it when they perceive the other side to have screwed up. But never has there been a mass condemnation on the scale of how the papers received ITV's new Saturday night offering, Splash! In case you've missed it the show invites Olympic pin-up Tom Daley to teach various lardy celebrities how to dive. Oh my goodness WHAT a belly-flop, hooted the papers. The criticism of Daley stung his mother Debbie so much that yesterday she published a furious open letter to the British Swimming chief executive David Sparkes telling him that Splash! would boost, not damage the profile of diving in Britain. How right Debbie is and how very wrong the critics are. Last Saturday my entire family sat down, open-mouthed with delight, absolutely loving every moment of this show. You want Olympic legacy? How better to show Daley's extraordinary ability, and the sheer toughness of the sport, than have him teach his craft to a bunch of no-hopers.

The struggling baby products retailer recently launched a new-look store in an attempt to revive its fortunes, but it has not stopped the attacks from scribes in the City.
