Each dive to the bottom of the pool would add more money to the My Room Telethon’s fundraiser.

After the stunt, Jones needed a ladder to get out of the water. Then it turned out that he had injured his foot from repeated diving.

He was treated by on-set medical staff who assessed his injury and bandaged him.

Meanwhile, other stunts saw sportswriter Damian Barrett do a “shoey” out of commentator Kane Cornes’ sneaker, which involved drinking beer out of a shoe.

The charity event came ahead of the AFL Grand Final, where the Geelong Cats defeated the Sydney Swans in a much-anticipated Premiership showdown.

Last weekend, Jones lashed out at the AFL after learning he hadn’t been invited to the Brownlow medal ceremony.

He had the spray live on the Sunday Footy Show after finding he had been denied entry for the first time in 32 years.

“When the AFL is watching you can get stuffed, it’s a shitty night,” he snapped, to the laughter of his co-stars.

His colleague Barrett explained that he had received his invitation a few weeks earlier.
