Dancing On Ice 2013: Beth Tweddle is early favourite

Beth Tweddle (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Beth Tweddle is the early favourite to win Dancing On Ice 2013 according to Ladbrokes.

Although she picked up a bronze medal at this summer's Olympic Games the firm are confident she'll upgrade to a gold during the new series of Dancing On Ice as the 3/1 favourite.

However skating up behind Tweddle in the betting is soap star Matt Lapinskas who's chalked up at 7/2, despite already having injured himself!

And Tweddle won't be the only Olympic hero competing on the show with gold medallist boxer Luke Campbell fancied as a 7/1 shot, along with Samia Ghadie (7/1) and former X Factor winner Shayne Ward (7/1).

Lauren Goodger won't be a stranger to the sport having no doubt spent her youth around Essex's ice rinks and that's why she's currently quoted at 8/1 in the market.

Outsiders include Anthea Turner (14/1), Keith Chegwin (16/1) and Oona King at 20/1.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Beth and Matt are the clear favourites to make it to the bolero this series but it's wide open at this stage as to which contestant will join them."
