Rav to sue Splash! firm over injury
FORMER Crimewatch presenter Rav Wilding is suing the production company behind Splash!, saying an injury he suffered while training for the diving show has derailed his career.
The ex- Strictly contestant said he had to cancel his wedding and has now put his home on the market because of the accident, which occurred in preshow training in 2013.
Rav ( above), 38, underwent surgery after snapping the hamstring tendons in his left leg during a somersault dive for the now defunct ITV show.
The ex-soldier and cop’s injuries meant he did not appear on the diving show, which was made by production company Twofour.
Legal firm Irwin Mitchell said Rav now has one leg shorter than the other and cannot walk or stand without pain.
Rav called the injury a “nightmare” which has “completely changed my life”.
He added: “I used to get active jobs based on my fitness, but now I can’t do those things, the opportunities aren’t really there any more.”
