Gemma Collins has threatened to quit Dancing On Ice over her first song choice.

Gemma is one of twelve celebs on the new Dancing On Ice line up and will take to the ice for the first time on Sunday night.


But in a clip from rehearsals, Gemma is seen saying she's leaving after finding out the song she'd be performing to.

As pro partner Matt Evers revealed they'd be skating to Venga Boys' We Like To Party, Gemma reacted: "I'm not coming out to that. You are joking. I'm leaving the show.

"Is this a joke? No, I'm leaving the show... I'm not coming out to that song."

Matt tried to convince her: "They have like all the other pros behind us, it'll be like a big production. I can be the bus driver."

Gemma was apparently persuaded into at least giving the song a try, taking to the ice for a practice skate.

However bookies have cut the odds on her walking out of the show.

Gemma was finally priced as a 9/2 shot to quit Dancing On Ice before the show airs on Sunday January 6th, but her odds have since shortened to 3/1 ahead of launch night. Should Gemma stick it out and perform on Sunday, she is a 13/8 shot to eventually quit at some stage throughout the competition.

As it stands, Love Island’s Wes Nelson remains the favourite to win after his odds were cut to 3/1 favouritism from 9/2 last month.

Previous early 11/4 favourite, former professional Strictly Come Dancing star James Jordan, drifted out to his current 9/2 second favouritism as a result.

Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for bookmakers BoyleSports commented: “Gemma Collins is known for her diva strops and quitting, lasting just 72 hours in the I’m a Celeb jungle back in 2014.


"She has vowed to become the ‘Beyoncé on Ice’ and claims she is doing it for the curvy girls but as her odds shorten to 3/1 from 9/2 to quit before Sunday’s launch night following a disagreement over her entrance music, we may not even she her take to the ice.”

Dancing On Ice 2019 airs at 6PM from Sunday, January 6.
