London: Argentine model Leandro Penna has signed diving show ‘Splash!’ to prove that he is more than just model Katie Price`s ex-boyfriend.

Penna, who parted ways with Price in September, has decided to stay in Britain and carve a niche for himself, reports a website.

‘Splash!’ will have celebrity contestants showing off their diving skills.

"Leandro can`t wait to get started on the new show," a website has quoted a source as saying.

"He has decided to make a life for himself in Britain despite his split from Katie Price. He has thrown himself into training and picked up a few knocks. He wants viewers to see a new side to him and that he is more than just an ex of Katie`s," the source added.

The celebrities will be trained by Olympic bronze medalist Tom Daley.
