CITY MP Penny Mordaunt has been revealed as a contestant on ITV’s smash hit diving show Splash!
The 40-year-old will appear on the programme presented by Tom Daley a week on Saturday.
Penny, who said she was afraid of heights, is donating her fee towards paying for the renovation of Hilsea Lido.
Penny said ‘Not only is Splash! a great personal development experience but it also seemed like the perfect way to fund raise for a charity I’m very passionate about – the Hilsea Lido in Portsmouth which is being renovated by the community.
‘I will be donating my fee for the programme to assist with the renovations.
‘I have the elegance and drive of a paving slab, but my navy training has certainly given me the guts to take on the challenge head on.’
