He was even supposed to appear alongside Tom on his hit ITV show Splash! on Saturday night.
But red tape meant that the youngster's showcase could not go ahead.
Mum Ali explained: "It's due to some legislation on children performing live.
"We're still hoping they might pre-record something and show it at the final.
"Tom could see how devastated Oscar was, so he decided to make this clip and put it online."
Tom labelled the short clip 'The Coolest 6 Year Old I Know' when he posted it on Twitter yesterday afternoon.
It shows Oscar, who has been diving since he was four, jumping from the 10m board at Plymouth Life Centre.
But Oscar is not the only star of his family.
His big sister Evangeline, seven, and brother Ollie, 13, are scarcely away from the centre.
"They live at the pool," Ali said. "All three are very competitive children, but they are very gracious in winning and in losing and they are very supportive of each other."
Although confident in her children's ability, Ali has had plenty of nail-biting moments from the public gallery.
She said: "It's not just the height, it's the twists and turns they do.
"Oscar has lots of tricks he wants to show off."
