Splash! Star Dan Osborne Reveals He Was Forced To Wear Tiny Leopard Print Trunks

If you were wondering whose idea it was to put TOWIE's Dan Osborne in teeny tiny leopard print trunks for his 'Splash!' debut on Saturday, it wasn't his.

Despite having one of the best bods in reality TV, Dan said it was, in fact, the show's producers who forced him to strip off and into the questionable speedos.


"I didn't choose them trunks, no," he told Digital Spy.

He added: "At first I was like, 'No way, that's not happening.' And in the end I ended up wearing them.

"They went for it, they really did. They went to town on my trunks. They were well cool. After Splash!, I'm keeping them. I'm going to wear them on my next holiday - I'm taking them to Dubai with me."

We believe you, Dan.

It turned out they were lucky pants as he and Danielle Lloyd made it through to the semi-finals of Tom Daley's ITV diving show.

Dan topped the leaderboard when the judges' scores and viewers' votes were combined, meaning that he progressed to the next round immediately.
