Dancing On Ice 2019's line up of celebrity contestants have been confirmed.
And the latest odds are out as the competition begins.
Punters have been out in force to support their favourite for Dancing on Ice before launch night this evening, seeing a reshuffle in the betting.
Love Island’s Wes Nelson remains the favourite to win and has even shortened ahead of his first performance on the ice to 2/1 from 3/1 as he continues to be the most backed celebrity.
There is a new second favourite in the form of EastEnder Richard Blackwood, who plays Vincent Hubbard in the soap. A rush of fresh support for Blackwood forced BoyleSports to cut his odds from fourth in line at 13/2 to the now 5/1 second favourite.
Previous second in command, James Jordan, who was also an early favourite to win, has suffered yet another drift, out to 11/2 from 9/2 as it seems his less than favourable reputation overshadows his professional background.
Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton is next at 6/1 with Brian McFadden following closely at 15/2 and X Factor finalist Saara Alto available at 9/1 alongside Coronations Street’s Jane Danson.
Outsiders include, cricketer Ryan Sidebottom (20/1), TOWIE’s Gemma Collins (22/1), Loose Women’s Saira Khan (25/1), Neighbours’ Mark Little (25/1) and Greece star Didi Conn (28/1) aka Frenchy.
Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “Wes Nelson is the punters pick ahead of launch night of Dancing On Ice, with fans already seeing a glimpse of his dancing moves in the Love Island villa. However late support for Richard Blackwood has made him the new 5/1 second favourite, indicating that he could be one to watch.”
