Splash champ Eddie the Eagle: from ski jump to high dive
Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards has been talking about his transition from ski jumping to being crowned champion on ITV's celebrity-diving competition, Splash.
He got a near-perfect score with his two-and-a-half somersault, but told BBC Breakfast he found diving from the 10m board "very, very scary".
Eddie said he has done a law degree since his Olympic days, but still does some plastering along with motivational speaking.
He also spoke about his TV costumes, and challenged Breakfast's Bill and Susannah to take part next time.
