The new series of Dancing on Ice continued with a bucketload more drama last weekend as Myleene Klass was the first celebrity to be kicked off the show.
Myleene lost out in the skate-off against Lady Leshurr last Sunday, while elsewhere it was the turn of radio DJ Sonny Jay to receive the Golden Ticket.
Ahead of this weekend’s third show, we’ve taken a look at which contestants are the favourites to go all the way and who could be set for the next exit.
What a week it’s been for former Coronation Street star Faye Brookes. Installed as the favourite to win the competition before she’d even taken to the ice, Faye showed us all why she’s the one to beat at this stage with a superb debut display in episode two. Strutting her stuff to ‘Lover’ by Taylor Swift, Faye was awarded the highest score on the night with an impressive total of 31.5 from the judges. She was 5/2 to win the series before last week, but her odds have since been slashed to 11/10.
He may have sat out last week’s show, having instead performed in the opening episode, but that doesn’t mean Joe-Warren Plant has slipped down the betting in the process. The Emmerdale star received the joint-highest score on the first night from the judges with 25 to ‘Sucker’ from the Jonas Brothers. Despite other contestants having a chance to shine last Sunday, he remains the second favourite at 3/1. What’s more, Joe’s odds have even shortened ever so slightly from last week’s 10/3.
There was some real drama in the Dancing on Ice camp this week after contestant Denise Van Outen was forced to withdraw from the competition after suffering a shoulder injury. But Denise’s loss is someone else’s gain, with Olympic gymnast Amy Tinkler quickly being brought in to replace Denise ahead of Sunday’s show. Remarkably, Amy has immediately been installed as the joint-second favourite alongside Joe at odds of 3/1. Will her gymnast background help her to succeed on the ice? We’ll soon find out…
Poor Lady Leshurr. It’s not been the easiest of rides for the rapper since she’s been on the show. Despite claiming a joint-top score of 25 from the judges in episode one, much to the public’s outrage she soon found herself picked for the bottom two skate-off. As mentioned, last Sunday she showed her class to deservedly see off Myleene in the skate-off and secure her survival. But despite that display, Lady Leshurr still remains the favourite to face the boot next at 7/4.
Jason Donovan/Rebekah Vardy
Jason Donovan and Rebekah Vardy are another two contestants who may be rather disappointed to see themselves being tipped for the next elimination. Alongside Lady Leshurr and Joe in week one, they also received the joint-highest score on the night from the judges with 25. Yet two weeks later, Jason and Rebekah are being priced as the joint-second favourites to face the axe next at odds of 7/2. This Dancing on Ice audience seem a tough crowd to please.
