James Jordan and Wes Nelson are fighting for favouritism on Dancing On Ice 2019.
After the third live show at the weekend, James Jordan remains the one to beat for the Dancing On Ice title, but has drifted after falling short of topping the leaderboard by 2.5 points.
The former Strictly Come Dancing professional was eased out to 13/8 from 6/4 as he begins to get overshadowed by another celeb.
Love Island’s Wes Nelson was the cream of the crop on Sunday scoring a staggering 29.5 for his routine, which resulted in his odds being slashed right into 7/4 from 5/2.
Another mover in the Outright market is X Factor runner-up Saara Alto, who placed third in the leaderboard after receiving 26 points for her performance to Frozen’s ‘Let It Go’. The high score evoked a rush of fresh support from punters who snapped up her 10/1 odds, backing her into 13/2.
There was a shock departure on Sunday night after EastEnders’ Richard Blackwood became the second celebrity to hang up their skates following a skate-off against Saira Khan.
It was head judge Jayne who swayed the vote to save Saira, leaving many fans disgruntled as Blackwood had been quoted as an 18/1 outsider to be given the boot. The Loose Woman panellist is a 50/1 shot to win.
Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “Things are really starting to heat up in the Dancing On Ice betting with James Jordan now feeling the pressure from Wes Nelson as very little separates them at present.”
