Dancing On Ice 2013: Torvill & Dean back dark horse Luke Campbell


Dancing On Ice 2013 coaches Torvill and Dean reckon that Luke Campbell shouldn't be ruled out of this weekend's final.

The boxer is tipped to finish in first place, having originally been the favourite to leave last Sunday night before Gareth Thomas withdrew.

But Christopher Dean and Jayne Torvill think many aren't giving the Olympic gold medalist a fair chance.

Chris told This Morning: “I think he has surprised a lot of people and his skating has continued to improve,” he said.

“I think that’s what everybody has been watching and I think that most of Hull has been watching as well.”

Jayne added: “Bit of a dark horse is Luke.”

Discussing the other finalists - Beth Tweddle and Matt Lapinskas - He added: "Matt is a challenge every time you work with him, because he’s got so much to give and it’s just keeping him focussed and on mission.

"This is what we do with Matt but he is a huge talent.”

Chris continued "Then you’ve got Beth, who is very focussed.”

And Jayne concurred: "She is great because she’s used to taking instruction and you tell her to do it once and she gets it right. It’s amazing.”
