Celebrity Splash – Denise Drysdale Quits
Denise Drysdale has quit Celebrity Splash citing age and fear of heights as her reason.
I am a fan of Ding Dong’s but she really should have thought about that before she signed on for the show. Maybe after seeing her semi-final folded into the grand final episode maybe she just decided it was not worth it.
The Daily Telegraph reports:
The TV veteran told Confidential she has been experiencing heart palpitations every morning since signing up to the show. And she’s cited age and a fear of heights as her reason for throwing in the towel.
“I am just too old to get hurt,” Drysdale said.
“I have come into the pool every day and felt sick in the stomach and I just thought, I don’t think I can do it.
“I feel fantastic, now I’ve made a decision.”
The crowd favourite said she felt guilty simply pin dropping while other contestants were flipping, diving and somersaulting off the three, five, seven and 10m boards.
“I watched the show last week and everybody was so good diving and flipping off 10m and I was just doing a pin drop,” she said.
“I thought that is not going to be good enough for a semi-final for the judges.”
Not sure why she thought that as her first “pin drop dive” aka jump scored her the second highest score of the evening.
If I was a betting person I suspect Brynne Edelsten will be the one to return to replace Denise.
Celebrity Splash final on Thursday night at 7.30pm.
