Sunday saw Gemma Collins finally eliminated from ‘Dancing on Ice.’ The endless press stories have kept interest in the competition with all the stories of her alleged diva behaviour. At least we’ll forever have that video of her falling flat on her face to keep us happy on a cold winter’s night. Now she’s gone, who will go on to win the series?
Ir’s a sad fact that millions more people are willing to watch some B-list celebrities ice-dancing at a slow pace, than watch the World Championships. Even more bizarre is that the outdoor ice-rinks we nearly broke our necks on at Christmas close just as this series began.
From Love Island to the Ice Rink
It’s almost compulsory in ITV reality shows that someone from ‘Love Island’ has to be a contestant. Wes Nelson has swapped the sun for an indoor ice-rink and he’s favourite to win the title. You can get odds of 10/11 (1.91) at Betway on him winning and 4/6 (1.66) with William Hill to be the Top Man.
Nelson has averaged 30.3 points with his professional partner Vanessa Bauer. He’s even been getting consistently high marks off evil judge Jason Gardiner so has a good chance of winning the show.
It’s looking his only main rival is going to be James Jordan. The former Strictly pro dancer was a controversial choice for the show considering his dancing ability. This may be on ice but he still has the highest average at 31.9. You can get odds of 7/4 (2.75) at Bet365 on him winning the title.
This Melody is in Tune
Former Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton is the top-ranked female competitor. Shes scored over 30 points in each of the last three weeks and was top-scorer in week four. She’s 9/1 (10.0) to win the series and only 10/11 (1.91) at SkyBet to be the Top Woman. Not that the exit of Gemma Collins is responsible for the shortening of those odds.
