19:02 - The three contestants in the final are Jake Canuso, Linda Barker and Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards.
19:04 - Tom Daleys starts things off by performing a three-and-a-half forward somersault from the ten metre platform.
19:07 - Clips from training shows that all three contestants have struggled and fought to take their dives to the next level.
19:08 - Linda Barker overrotated a syncro dive in training and will be sporting several bruises for the final.
19:10 - The final is solely decided by the public, so the judges have been delegated to a spectator role tonight. They will, however, still score the dives.
19:11 - First up is Linda Barker, who in training has been working on doing somersaults. Something she has not done in the heat or semi final.
19:12 - Her dive will be a one-and-a-half forward somersault with tuck from the five metre platform.
19:14 - Linda Barker gets ready, practicing her tuck position and steps up to the edge.
19:15 - It is a near perfect forward one-and-a-half forward somersault with very little splash.
19:16 - The judges are all impressed; the scores are: 8.5, 9.5 and 8.5 - a total of 26.5 points.
19:23 - Next up is Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards, who scored a massive 29 out of 30 points in the semi final. It could seem that the only way for him is down...
19:24 - In training he faceplanted when tried doing a forward two-and-a-half somersault from the three metre board and seemed to lose a lot of confidence.
19:25 - He is, however, still going to go for a two-and-a-half somersault off the ten metre platform.
19:27 - The Eagle gets ready on the ten metre, swoops down and performs a great dive!
19:28 - The judges are impressed, to put it mildly. 10, 10 and 10. A perfect score.
19:31 - It is time for Jake Canuso who will have to pull off something pretty special to equal Eddie's score.
19:32 - Jake Canuso is going for an armstand pike somersault off the ten metre platform, but has looked a bit worse for wear in training.
19:34 - Jake Canuso focuses and has a go at getting into the armstand position but has to go back down. He makes it in the second attempt and performs a very good dive. His entry is a bit splashy, but otherwise it is hard to lay a finger on his dive.
19:36 - The judges score the dive: 9, 9.5 and 9, giving him 27.5 out of 30 possible points.
19:38 - All three contestants have shown great composure under pressure and delivered on the platform. Next up are the synchronized dives.
19:46 - Tom Daley: "synchronized divers usually practice together for at least six months." The celebrities have had about a week to practice with Tom Daley.
19:47 - First up (and then down) is Linda Barker.
19:48 - Linda and Tom will be performing a backward tuck from the ten metre platform. It is the dive that Linda Barker hurt herself practicing earlier.
19:49 - The two are just about level and synchronized throughout the dive, but Linda Barker seems to overrotate the dive slightly.
19:52 - The judges give it a total of 27.5 out of 30 points.
19:58 - Eddie - in gold trunks - and Tom get ready for their dive.
19:59 - The pair will be attempting to do an inwards one-and-a-half somersault pike from the ten metre.
20:00 - Tom and the eagle are synchronized throughout, with Eddie overrotating a little.
20:02 - The scores from the judges total 29 points, giving Eddie 'The Eagle' a total of 59 points out of 60.
20:03 - Last up is Jake Canuso. The pair will be performing a forward one-and-a-half somersault piked from the 7.5 metre platform.
20:05 - The final dive of Splash! 2013 proves to be a great one. The synchronization is perfect and it earns a total of 28 points from the judges.
20:10 - It is time for the public's vote to be counted. It will decide who wins Splash 2013!
20:28 - The votes are in and the results are:

20:29 - And the winner is: Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards!
