Dancing On Ice 2013 final: Beth Tweddle ignoring favourite tag

Beth Tweddle (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Dancing On Ice 2013 favourite Beth Tweddle has said she's excited for the final, but Jason Gardiner's not too impressed!

Olympian Beth is the bookies' tip to win, although the modest sportswoman played down the favourite tag.

She said: “I am used to just focusing on the task in hand, not playing up to the crowd.”

Speaking to The Sun newspaper today, Beth added: “I expected to get booted on week one so to be in the final is very exciting.”

However Dancing On Ice judge Jason warned that Beth needed to show more personality if she wanted to triumph over Matt Lapinskas tomorrow night.

He explained: “I don’t think Beth has got enough personality. This is something I have been saying a lot. It would be underwhelming if she won, there isn’t much excitement to Beth."

But Jason, who previously claimed Beth was "dead behind the eyes" during last weekend's performance, added: “She’s one of the most brilliant celebrity female skaters we have ever had because of what she can technically do.

“Her skating is so clean. Her ability with her body is remarkable. But what she struggles with is the complete package.”
